Pike Place Market welcomes Dot’s Butcher & Deli! Chef and owner Miles James is proud to present the only whole animal butchery in the Market. James has over 20 years of experience in the food industry, starting out as a dishwasher and working his way up. Dot's may be new to the Market but this isn't its first appearance in Seattle. Dot's Charcuterie & Bistro, located in Fremont, closed its doors in 2014 after three years in business. Now, the deli is back, with a menu featuring familiar cuts of meats like pork belly, ground beef, and rib eye alongside some less familiar meats like rabbit (upon request). As the name states, Dot's is not just a butchery; their deli menu boasts of delicious sandwiches such as porchetta, meatball, and cheesesteak with house made cheese wiz. With items that sound this delicious, it's hard to believe that James used to be a vegan. Dot’s is open from 10 am-6 pm.

Art-to-Go as You Nosh

Posted June 22, 2016

The next time you purchase a tasty stuffed pastry at Piroshky Piroshky, check the bag. On one side you'll find the shop's logo, and on the other side? Artwork created by one of the Market's 200+ local craftspeople. It's a unique opportunity to promote another aspect of the Market community that grew from a change in bag manufacturers.

Oliver Kotelnikov and Olga Sagan, owners of the shop, were in the process of choosing a new bag maker when they brainstormed ideas for images that could go on one side of the bag. "There is so much beautiful art for sale in the Market, we thought we'd like to share it with our customers at all our stores," Olga said. After consulting with some Market craftspeople, who reacted positively to the idea, Olga and Oliver chose artwork by Sally Simmons for their first printing of 300,000 new bags.

Here at Pike Place Market, we value eating locally and sustainably – and it’s a value our vendors and restaurants share. Three of our restaurants, Matt’s in the Market,
Place Pigalle, and Pike Place Chowder, have joined a new sustainable seafood program called “Smart Catch,” which aims to help chefs work towards ensuring an abundant supply of seafood for generations to come.

As part of the Smart Catch program, the menus of participating restaurants are assessed and rated, with chefs agreeing to remove seafood that is overcaught or overfished as a commitment to serving sustainable seafood.
