Farmers' market at Pike Place

even longtime seattlites do not know (or have forgotten) that there are two distinct levels of food sales at pike place market - though the majority of merchants are selling products bought elsewhere (the 'high stalls'), there are many sellers of goods (the 'low stalls'') produced by their own hands or on their own land - the market master is scrupulous with these vendors as "MEET THE PRODUCER" has been a market mantra for over 100 years. some of these merchants are there every day (cheese, sausage, hazelnuts, honey, etc.) and some are there this time of year every wednesday through sunday when they set up in pavilions on the street. of course, a shopper must wade through a zillion tourists seeking thrown fish and the original starbucks but the food products are just as fresh and shiny as at any smaller farmers' market
