There is a right way and wrong way to experience the must-see destination that is Pike Place Market. This is the stroll around Pike Place that I only share with people I like. A little history, a little entertainment, all the iconic sites and a good amount of food. This is the best of the best of the market: donuts, chocolate covered cherries, ginger beer, pork buns and more. Just don't tell anyone!

About Your Guide
After a nomadic life cooking in top kitchens all over the west coast, I now call Seattle home. There is an incredible food scene here largely due to the convergence of different cultures, fresh local produce and seafood, and tech industry money. Luckily for me, it is both my job and obsession to know the local culinary scene. Let me show you my Seattle.
