There is so much fresh produce in Seattle from brambles of wild blackberries to garlic that bleeds a purple color and remains fresh for ages. I discovered a lot of these local goodies at Pike's Market. You really don't need to eat lunch with all the sampling going on here of everything from smoked salmon, dried strawberries, and honey with different vine riped berry flavors. If your belly isn't full after all the grazing I would recommend going to have a piroshky at Piroshky Piroshky. I had a potato, onion, and cheese one. The caramelized onions paired well with the goey cheese and soft bread. All and all, I didn't eat anything that wasn't in the category of being delicious.
I posted my pictures from Labor Day weekend. I spent it with my brother who recently moved with his family to work at Microsoft in Redmond. I have been missing my little nieces and this visit made for one wonderful trip. I also snuck away to go to Pike's Market with my Dad and to Bumpershoot where I saw Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse.
