Instead of shopping gift registries, try browsing the craft tables in the north end of Pike Place Market for unique handcrafted gifts that are decorative, functional or both. If you’re shopping for those who love to cook, wine and dine, you can’t go wrong with these: 

Raven Mountain Woodworks

Terry Graves produces cutting boards of durable woods. Choose a pig, a fish, or a pear—each has a food-safe finish. Check out their website here.

 

Fine Grind

Brett Knutson creates pepper and salt mills made from exotic and domestic woods. Each features gourmet components and a lifetime warranty. They come in a variety of sizes, 6 to 24 inches. Brett also sells bottle stoppers.

 

Ballard Vine Works

Ballard Vine Works takes wine barrels and repurposes them into bottle racks, wine butlers, flight glass holders, cheese boards and more, even small tables! Find them online here.

 

Kitchen Basics

For the cook who has everything, try building your own “gizmo and gadgets” basket chock-full of unusual kitchen items. Kitchen Basics, located in the Sanitary Market, carries unusual items like a coconut tool, a lemon press, a banana slicer, a pineapple slicer and even a watermelon slicer! Arguably the most popular tool is the 3-in-1 avocado slicer, it slices, removes the pit, AND neatly cuts the silky green flesh into slices. Find them online here.

If you’re looking for the perfect Easter ham or leg of lamb, biscuits and breads for brunch, candy or toys to fill the Easter basket, or eggs to dye and hide, stop by Pike Place Market and explore all of the plentiful options!

Order your Easter ham or leg of lamb from Don & Joe’s Meats, Bavarian Meats or Pike’s Pit BBQ.

Grab warm biscuits from Honest Biscuits, delicious breads from Le Panier, or traditional Easter Russian Apple Kulich from Piroshky Piroshky.

Serving wine or mimosas? Check out Wilridge Winery, Northwest Tastings or the cellar in the upstairs of DeLaurenti Specialty Food & Wine.

Fill up those Easter baskets with chocolates from indi chocolate, candies from Sweetie’s, and little toys and trinkets from shops like Ugly Baby, Pike Place Gifts, Robot vs Sloth or Market Magic and Novelty Shop.

And of course, you have to dye some eggs! Hop by the Market Creamery for your choice of eggs, available in a large assortment of sizes and varieties.
