Melrose plays David to Pike Place’s Goliath, attracting a loyal following in the process. To understand why, order a cocktail at Still Liquor or pick up some handcrafted housewares from Butter Home.
This is no food court: It’s a modern incarnation of Pike Place Market with notable locals as vendors, serving up what’s fresh in the Northwest: among them, chef Matt Dillon at Sitka and Spruce, and Taylor Shellfish with its bounty of oysters, clams, and mussels.
The Melrose Market features some of the city’s best independent food purveyors, as well as shops and a restaurant and bar from a renowned Seattle chef.
This urban refuge amid old-growth-timber beams, steel braces and exposed brick brings a Pike Place Market feel to the Hill.
