Clam Chowder

Voted the best New England Style Clam Chowder three years in a row at the prestigious Great Clam Chowder Cook Off in Newport, Rhode Island and later inducted to the Clam Chowder Hall of Fame (yes there is one). America’s best chowder is right here in Seattle.

Pure Food Fish Market

Since 1914, locals in the know have been buying their fish from the Amon family, Sol Amon who is often referred to as the “Cod Father” has been tending shop for over 56 years. His recipe for Alder-Smoked Salmon is the best I’ve ever tasted.

Alm Hill Photo

Alm Hill Farms

Ben Craft and Gretchen Hoyt planted their first field of raspberries on Alm Hill in the early 1970s. Over the next three decades, the team carefully perfected a delicious and expansive variety of organic berries and vegetables. Today Alm Hill is Washington State’s largest organic farming coop.
