I was excited to join Jan Marie Johnson and her Seattle Bites tours of the market. With the help of Jan Marie we were able to meet the unique and charming merchants that give the market it's personality from the mom and pop eateries, to the one of a kind food shops. Seattle Bites pairs memorable stories of the history of the market and it's merchants with delicious gourmet and unique food and beverage tastings. We had the good fortune of trying "America's Best Chowder" which has been put in the hall of fame in the competition because it was unbeatable, to authentic pastrami flown in from New York, to sea salt or wasabi chocolates from an experienced chocolatiere, to artisanal family owned Italian wines.
Over the next few weeks I will be sharing my experiences with you about the history of the market as well as the tour with Jan Marie. In the meantime please enjoy a few snapshots of this memorable experience.
