One of my favorite food events in Seattle (held at one of my favorite places!) is coming again soon and I promise you won’t want to miss it!
Pike Place Market presents Arcade Lights, a semiannual celebration of artisan foods, craft beers and wine on April 19. Dedicated to promoting independent producers, Pike Place Market has invited 60 purveyors of finely crafted sweet and savory foods, local breweries and regional wineries to participate in this wonderful after-hours festival.
Attendees at the event will have the opportunity to discover the season’s newest flavors. You will sample delicious artisan foods and beverages while you meet and chat with emerging (and some of your favorites!) vendors of brews and bites.
I attended Arcade Lights last fall and was delighted to find several new favorites!
Held in the Market’s historic North Arcade, Arcade Lights is made even more of a magical experience with the ambiance and views of Pike Place Market at night.
A nice mix of sweet and savory food vendors include:
- Firefly Kitchens
- Mt. Townsend Creamery
- Pampeana Empanadas
- Uli’s Sausage
- Roving Pizzaioli
- The Yellow Leaf Cupcake Co.
- Six Strawberries
- Whidbey Island Ice Cream Company
- Mighty-O Donuts
- Coffee and A Specialty Bakery will offer tastes of their 100% gluten free baked goods
- And many others!
Local participating breweries:
- Elysian Brewing Company
- Odin Brewing Company
- Pike Brewing Company
- Fremont Brewing
- Reuben’s Brews
- And so much more!
Wine enthusiasts will delight in a sparkling wine from Bellingham vineyard Masquerade Wine while cider fans will enjoy tasting cider from The Methow Valley Ciderhouse and Eaglemount Wine and Cider.
