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!

Pappardelle’s Pasta

Pappardelle's stall in Pike Place Market may not be the national chain’s only location, but its location smack in the middle of the bustling Pike Place Market makes it a fun and festive trip with the kids. If you’re looking for a less common side dish for your Thanksgiving meal, try a pound of straight-up pumpkin pasta, or Pappardelle's Autumn Harvest blend with chestnut, pumpkin and sage pasta.
