Every Thanksgiving, we’re thankful to live in Seattle, where terms like “artisan” and “local” are as common as “coffee” and “rain.” We’ve rounded up some of our city’s best independent markets and specialty shops that can help you create a bountiful holiday table that fits your family’s style. These area bakeshops, butchers and cheesemongers will take your Turkey Day menu way beyond canned cranberry sauce and gloppy green bean casserole. Read on for our picks!
A la Mode Pies on Phinney Ridge bakes mouthwatering desserts all year round. But the little pie shop across from the zoo really shines when the holiday season hits. What’s better than ordering apple & ginger pear pie stuffed with Washington apples and organic Bartlett pears or pumpkin pie with gingersnap crust? Having it delivered to your door anywhere in the Seattle Metro area. Place your pie order by Monday, November 25 this year to make sure it arrives in time for turkey day, and note that A la Mode doesn’t deliver on Thanksgiving or the day before.
