Seattle Foodie Trip

Written by Becky

I first visited Seattle exactly four years ago. Since then, I’ve visited Seattle a handful of times and after much exploring I figured this write up needed some major updates. I now know that this city is best explored as a foodie. Taste, smell, sip and savor everything that the sea port city has to offer from fresh crab to fresh flowers.

On every visit to Seattle I spend the majority of my time near Pike Place Market. When we’re staying with friends I pick up some dried fruits as a snack and a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers for our hosts.  On this latest visit with Girards I sampled the fresh honey crisp apples, tried the fresh Greek yogurt stand and picked up some orange honey covered hazelnuts.  I walked around the market, enjoying the company of new friends in the excitement of a bustling city. Here are a few favorites spot to visit and food items to pick up at the market:

Seattle City View

My favorite way to travel is to explore, get lost, find the hidden gems, and see a new place from the perspective of local culture. On my first visit to Seattle we got to walk around with some friends who were locals. They showed us the hot local spots, took us to a great lookout, took us on public transportation, and shared a few great meals together at local favorites. Here are some of their recommendations plus some other folks have recommended to me. Hope you can enjoy Seattle with a local someday!
