We'll be visiting the last weekend of September from San Francisco with no particular agenda other than sampling what the Northwest has to offer. Not sure what to expect, but chanterelles (and other mushrooms), geoducks, spiny and pink scallops, and Olympia oysters would be super. Anything local is of interest. Would much prefer to purchase from the forager/fisherman; for example, we plan on visiting oyster farms (any suggestions? Taylor? other?).

Scallops in the shell would be excellent--one of our coworkers just assumed that they came as little disks of flesh. We want to show her the real thing, eyes and all if possible (I know they are very perishable).

Farmers markets and Asian markets are welcome. Have car, willing to drive.
