All-New 'Eat Seattle' Food Tours Stop by Pure Food Fish Market
Pike Place Market is full of history. Even our shop has been here for over 100 years! So, it's no wonder why people come from all over the world to see all that it has to offer. We are excited to be partnering with a brand new tasting tour company based in Seattle called Eat Seattle. On every single one of their Tasting Tours and Farm To Table Tours and Cooking Classes, they will make a stop here at Pure Food - you may even get a sample... you'll have to come and see! We talked with Eat Seattle to get to know the company a little better especially so we could share the good word with you. Take a read! PFFM: Why is Pike Place Market so special? Eat Seattle: The Pike Place Market supports artisan vendors and local producers who invest time and energy to create the highest quality products. It’s similar to farmers' markets in Europe where each vendor has its own specialty. It’s a venue where chefs, locals and tourists can co-mingle and appreciate food together. How would you describe the Tasting Tour? The 2-hr Tasting Tour highlights the Pike Place Market, its vendors and their food, through the culinary perspective of a chef. Our chef-guides provide an added layer of food knowledge and creativity to the tastings. For example, they will take a vendor’s food and cook up the perfect bite to show off these products.
