INTERNATIONAL FOOD BLOGGERS CONFERENCE
SEATTLE AUGUST 27-29 2010
I'd read a bit about Pike Place Market from the gluten-free vegetarian perspective, so I was not expecting to find much I could eat. When I got really hungry, I hit First Avenue for the very small taco stand two doors down from the very large international corner newsstand.
There I had a $3.50 lunch of two corn tacos, one with refried pinto beans and one with black beans, guaranteed gluten-free and vegetarian. Saved! I have to admit I hadn't made anything resembling an exhaustive tour of the Pike Place restaurants in search of gluten-free veg food (long flight, short nap), so there may very well be other foods I can eat there, but probably none this inexpensive! (Apologies for lack of photo, but I was distracted by hunger.)
The easiest sources of gluten-free and vegetarian food were the abundant produce stands,so I got fruits for snacking on at the conference seminars, and then just started to enjoy the non-food aspects of the place, which were numerous, diverse, and visually stimulating.
Above, as the sign states, a real clown shoe. I'd never seen one of those close up before .
