Take a springtime adventure to Pike Place!

Take a springtime adventure to Pike Place!

Posted May 21, 2014

Take a springtime adventure to Pike Place! Take home first-of-the-season Copper River King and Sockeye salmon from the pristine Copper River in Alaska. The much-prized salmon is now available at the Market’s seafood markets: City Fish, Jack’s Fish Spot, Pike Place Fish or Pure Food Fish- just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. 

The salmon that swim the epic 300 rugged miles of the pristine Copper River store extra fat that helps them take on their long journey. This added fat and oil is what makes the Copper River salmon recognized for its distinctive color, exquisite flavor and delicate texture. The fish is high in protein with one of the highest concentrations of Omega-3 oils. 

With the Memorial Day holiday, local graduations and Father’s Day coming up, there’s plenty of reason to spark up the BBQ, rain or shine. 
Find made-in-house bratwurst, sausage and hot dogs from Market butchers and delis like BB Ranch, Bavarian Meats, Don and Joe’s Meats or Uli’s Sausage.

Naturally fermented sides like sour or spicy pickles, kimchee or sauerkraut from Britt’s Pickles bring the meal together in a fun and healthy way. All of the vegetables are fermented in oak barrels, the old fashioned way, preserving their nutrients and enzymes.

Say hello to spring at Pike Place Market!
