Seattle's urban marketplaces are making waves all the way to the New York Times Travel section, which recently covered our hip, vibrant, interstitial spaces that are serving up local food and craft. Meat & Bread, which we built (designed by Ste. Marie), is featured along with Lark and other connected businesses in the Central Agency Building, a renovated auto parts shop in Capitol Hill. Each venue is open at different times throughout the day, attracting a revolving crowd of patrons from the morning into the evening.
Several other new marketplaces are also featured, including the super chic Chop House Row, which boasts restaurants and bars accessible from the street, and additional little shops located down an alleyway called the “mews.” For all these new and unique marketplaces, the article credits Seattle’s Pike Place Market, the longest continually operating farmers market in the country. We love that our city is receiving recognition for our hyper-local craft, quality, and design. Seattle for the win!
