Editorial Reviews

Northwest Palate
When my author and I moved to Seattle, we chose to live half a block from Pike Place Market,' says author (and Northwest Palate contributor) Braiden Rex-Johnson. 'We've lived there for over nine years.' In that time, she has produces two Pike Place Market cookbooks, but in her latest book, she turns her attention to the market's businesses and vendors, focusing on the chefs, artisans, farmers, "highstallers," and fishmongers who have helped make the market a national treasure. Snippets of local history (the market's LaSalle Apartments once housed a bordello) and 20 new recipes are scattered throughout the text. If you can't make regular visits to the market, Rex-Johnson's stories and Paul Souder's richly colored photos make this volume the next best thing to being there.
City Food
...makes the Pike Place Market more thrilling to discover than ever before
Seattle Homes and Lifestyles
Since its opening day in 1907, the Pike Place Market has gradually established itself as Seattle's best-loved landmark. Today, most locals couldn't imagine this city without the cramped alleys of the market buzzing with vendors, artists and gawking tourists. In her new book, Braiden Rex-Johnson has woven together painstaking research and honest appreciation into a portrait of Seattle's premier farmers market. Impressively detailed historical articles describe the origins of the life-size bronze piggy bank, the flying fish spectacle and failed attempts by local business owners to close the market. the remotest corners of the market are brought to light with entertaining profiles of hard-to-find shops and longtime vendors, and a few recipes are included for those wondering what to do with all the fresh ingredients available. The book's photographs, by Paul Souders, highlight the colorful diversity that makes the market so popular. Lovingly written and well designed, Inside the Pike Place Market effectively captures the market and its well-earned place in Seattle's history.

When my partner and I moved to Seattle, we chose to live half a block from Pike Place Market. 'We've lived there for over nine years.'

Snippets of local history (the market's LaSalle Apartments once housed a bordello) and 20 new recipes are scattered throughout the text. If you can't make regular visits to the market, Rex-Johnson's stories and Paul Souder's richly colored photos make this volume the next best thing to being there.
