The Skillet Street Food Truck was downtown today, and seemed like as good a reason as any to post a blog about all the amazing food trucks in Seattle! Many Seattlites have pined for the variety of food trucks that Portland offers, but in 2015, we are well on our way. SeattleFoodTruck.com offers a breakdown of what trucks are out there and when they will be in your neighborhood. You can search by truck name or location. Food trucks are a great way for visitors to check out Seattle restaurants without having to venture outside of downtown. Just two blocks from Inn at the Market at 2nd and Pine St. is a parking lot hosting food trucks most days of the week.
Now that winter break is here, we thought we’d share this great website for a list of holiday happenings in Seattle.

Just a reminder, our Holiday Package is available through New Year’s Eve and includes an overnight stay, valet parking, a $50 gift certificate for shopping at the Inn at the Market, and a $75 gift certificate for dining at Cafe Campagne or Chan.

We are excited to announce our new partnership with Antica Farmacista! This Seattle company produces some of the most luxurious bath and fragrance products on the market.

The rumors are true! Shiro Kashiba, one time owner and namesake of Shiro’s sushi in Belltown, will be opening a new restaurant in the former Marché space located here in the courtyard of the Inn at the Market. Most locals think of Kashiba when they think sushi in Seattle. His culinary expertise dates back several decades and his influence on Seattle sushi is undeniable. The Stranger posted an article this spring about Kashiba’s departure from Shiro’s that gives a little back story on his current venture into Pike Place Market. Seattle Met sent the word out last night regarding the Pike Place Market Historical Commission approval of the new enterprise, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Details of the restaurant such as name, design and opening date are to be determined. We do know that Kashiba is planning on serving Edo, Tokyo-style sushi. The hope is that by summer of 2015, we will be offering sushi al fresco in our courtyard! Please check back with us and feel free to send your questions our way!
