The tour continues with tasting plates at many locations along the way, and you might even run across a nice drink.

The chef discusses seasonal produce in Washington State while serving up one of his/her homemade, savory tarts. Then it's on to BB Ranch, a full-service butcher dedicated to all-natural grass fed meats. At Britt's Pickles, discuss their premium products and the benefits of using lactose fermentation. Elsewhere, try Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt; another chef-made tasting using MarketSpice's tea or spices; Uli's Famous Sausage and their authentic German sausage; and the Pike Place Fish Market's prized wild King Salmon Fillet. Then the tastings finish with some of the purest direct-trade dark chocolate at indi chocolate. That's 10 total stops with two chef-made tastings.
