Looking to get in touch with Seattle foodie culture? Chew on this.
Explore the iconic city through through your tastebuds, visiting some of the top vendors in Pike Place Market with a local chef. Small groups sizes and a connected local means you'll be able to weave through the hustle and bustle of the market for an intimate, eye-opening, and occasionally edible experience.
Over the course of two hours, learn about how Pike Place Market got its start, and why it remains central to Seattle's food culture and restaurateurs today. Kick things off at Beecher's Mac N' Cheese for a look-see at the cheesemaking biz, and then stop in at Local Color for a fair trade coffee and doughnut exposition.
Scarf down a savory tart, and then head off to meet a meat guy. The BB Ranch is a full-service butcher dedicated to all-natural grassfed meats. Britt's Pickles is up next for a study in the benefits of lactose fermentation. Be sure to milk the experience for all its worth.
Then, saunter over to Ellenos (famous) Greek Yogurt, followed by a chef-tasting of MarketSpice's tea or spices. Ulis will then give you a tempting peek into the wonderful world of German sausage (das bratwurst zu sterben). Afterwards, find your way to Pure Food Fish Market to learn about wild King Salmon, before ending your trip with a tempting tasting at Indi Chocolate.
All told, you'll be treated to ten insider stops, and two chef-made tastings, plus exclusive discounts just in case you want to bring some of the yum home with you.
This tour bites, but only in the best possible way.
