If you live in Seattle, you know that the arrival of certain coveted items can make headlines, sending food lovers into an excited tizzy. In May, for example, city-wide restaurants and vendors (like Pure Food Fish Market in Pike Place) released announcements heralding the much-anticipated arrival of Wild Alaskan Copper River Salmon. (Fun fact: Alaska is the source of nearly 60% of the seafood harvested in America, including 90% of its wild salmon.)
For the first time in 40 years, our beloved Pike Place Market is growing with the “MarketFront,” which should be ready for the public in spring 2017 The Market-centric expansion will reclaim an underutilized surface parking lot on Western Avenue, and create a dynamic public plaza with views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains, table space for farmers, craftspeople and artisan purveyors, retail space, low-income housing, a neighborhood center and parking.
