Hi Tamra! We're so glad Miriam was able to show you around the Market. She certainly does love all the tastings we offer - she probably referenced her "Savor 15" she's gained since working for us. All of us in the office adore Ellenos, Beechers, Pike Place Chowder, and everywhere else we visit. Thanks for coming on our Food and Cultural tour, and we hope to see you again next time you're in Seattle!

We certainly were entertained by our guide, Justin. Loved his stories on the history and his sense of humor. I did think it was an expensive tour for the amount of samples we got. This is my second time with this tour, and I'm pretty sure we walked away very full the previous
