'Eat Seattle' takes us on insider food tour of Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market.

A Seattle staple since 1907. A lot of people know it for fish throwing, the original Starbucks, and yes, tourists. But this place is more than an attraction. It's part of the fabric of the city and it offers plenty of tasty reasons for locals to visit too.

Just ask chef Liz McCune.

"This market has become more and more special as I've worked here over the years. The reason why is not just because of the fresh food, it's because of the soul here in Pike Place," said Liz.

Liz is the founder of Eat Seattle. Operating out of the market, Liz and her team of chefs offer cooking classes, private dinners and food tours. Their goal? Highlight Pacific Northwest ingredients and the folks who produce them.

We took one of Eat Seattle's tours and checked out some of Liz's favorite vendors. Our stops included Simply the Best, Frank's Quality Produce, Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt, Pure Food Fish Market and Indi Chocolate.
