Editor's Explorations - June 5, 2017

  • Written by Kristen Hamilton

My husband (Bob) and I recently became empty nesters and needed some spark in our day to day adventures.  We decided that moving from somewhat rural Montana to the Woodinville area was the answer and we couldn’t be happier with the decision.

I’m certain our readers love the area for the  same reasons we do but sometimes life gets in the way.  We forget how much is available and how much we can do with little effort practically out our back door.  So join me as we explore!  Perhaps you’ll want to relive a fun memory or discover a new haunt right in your backyard.

Week 1 – Pike Place Market
Okay I know REALLY?  Well think about it – when was the last time you ventured to Pike Place Market.  I’m sure that most visitors that come to town request a trip there but do you go with them?  It’s time to head downtown and check things out.  I’m here to tell you that even if you don’t buy a thing, you’ll have a great afternoon checking out the vendors, people watching and sampling great products.

What I’m impressed with most is the amazing seafood, fresh vegetables, and beautiful flower bouquets.  I’d venture to guess you couldn’t get much fresher than these offerings.

The market is open every day from 9:00am to 6:00pm and now through September 27 they are open until 7:00pm on Wednesday night.

Also, mark your calendar for the MarketFront Grand Opening on Thursday, June 29 from 2:00pm-7:00pm.  It’ll be a great afternoon filled with festivities, live music and bites from MarketFront vendors to help visitors explore the new public space.
