Another long-standing vendor at Pike Place, and with good reason. The cherry is one of Washington State's proudest agriculture products, especially sweet Bing and firm Rainier varieties. You'll definitely find plenty of fresh cherries at one of the market stands, especially in the summer, but Chukar is the place to go for great cherry flavors in the off-season. They make preserves, pie fillings, candies and a lot of other really delicious stuff from the Montgomery family orchard in the nearby Yakima Valley.
Mick's Peppourri is a jelly-lover's dream come true. Their family-owned stand at Pike Place Market always has a huge selection of jellies made from things like hot peppers and wine grapes. The Death Valley jelly is a real challenge, even for iron-tongued heat freaks, but the wine jellies are really out of this world and the reason to check out Mick's. It's not exactly PB&J material, but it'll change the way you look and brie and crackers, that's for sure.
Just about every neighborhood in Seattle has a farmers' market, but none are as extensive or impressive as Pike Place. Located in the heart of downtown Seattle in a vibrant commercial and residential district, Pike Place overlooks beautiful Puget Sound with a clear view of the Olympic Mountains and many of the region's peaceful, wooded islands. The market spans three floors with dozens of shops, restaurants and vendors, but the main attraction is the street-level meat and produce arcade. Tall piles of Seattle's freshest seafood is on display, along with fruits and veggies grown just miles away. Grab a sample or two (or twenty).
