Melrose Market

Market in Capitol Hill & First Hill

Melrose Market, at the base of the trendy Pike–Pine Corridor in Capitol Hill, is a kind of modern antidote to Pike Place: it's much smaller in size and bustling, but not packed to the literal gills with tourists. The two places do, however, share one thing in common: they’re both fastidiously locavore.

Popular Melrose vendors, all of whom are permanent, include Homegrown, the sustainable sandwich shop; Taylor Shellfish, which runs a sustainable shellfish farm near Bellingham; a couple of specialist cheese and meat sellers; a cocktail bar; and the peerless Sitka & Spruce.
