By now you’ve noticed the nip in the morning air, the chill in the evening breeze and have probably switched your daily cold brew for something warmer. Well folks, fall is officially here, and we think it might be time to add a little hygge to your life.

Never heard of hyggeHygge (pronounced “hue-gah”) is a Danish word describing a quality of coziness that encourages a feeling of comfort and contentment. This Scandinavian philosophy has been sweeping the internet by storm and we think it's the perfect way to help us get through Seattle's rainy, gray season.

Thanks to our Pike Place Market merchants, we found nine ways to add a little hygge to your life.


1. Rain Boot Liners from WithTheRain

While Seattle may have broken its own record of days without rainfall over the summer, that certainly is not that case this fall. Pick up a pair (or 2!) of cozy/cute boot liners from WithTheRain and your feet will be singing your praise throughout the rainy season. Shop WithTheRain on Etsy or find them set up most days in the Pike Place crafts market.


2. Wool Blanket from Eighth Generation

Can we all agree that snuggling up in your favorite blanket is one of the best feelings in the world? Eighth Generation carries 100% cotton and 100% wool blankets featuring Native designs, perfect for curling up with in your favorite chair or spot on the couch. Browse Eighth Generation's blanket collection online or visit their flagship store in Pike Place Market's Atrium.


3. Something Hot from Storyville Coffee Company

For an inviting spot to hide out (and hang out) away from the bustle of Pike Place, take the stairs to the top floor of the Corner Market building and head towards the back to find Storyville Coffee. Grab a cup of something hot and snag a seat next to the windows overlooking the Market or get extra toasty by the fire place.


4. Wool Link Chain Scarf from Twyla Dill

Comfort meets style! This knit Chain Scarf is made with 100% wool. The chain links (11 to be exact) give you a little warmth without being overwhelming. Each link is hand-knit around the previous link, making this a chain with no sewn seams. Every Chain Scarf is lovingly made here in Seattle by Pike Place craftsperson Twyla Dill. Shop on her website or find her table at the Market (sign up for Twyla's email list to get a weekly schedule).


5. Candles from Sunny Honey Co.

Add warmth and light to your home with these exquisite hand-dipped, 100% beeswax candles. The subtle sweet fragrance and light of these pairs of long-burning, air-cleaning tapers are an essential addition to keeping your home cozy. Order online or pick some up in person at Sunny Honey's shop next to Pike Place Fish Market.


6. Slippers from Northstar Trading Co.

While the jury is still out on if you can actually get sick from walking around barefoot, we’ve got you (err your feet) covered just in case! These sheepskin slippers from Northstar Trading Co. will keep your toes safe from cold floors thoughout fall and winter. Available online or in person at the Market seven days a week!


7. Hoodies from Slow Loris

Hoodie season – you know, when it’s too chilly for just a t-shirt but not quite cold enough for a heavy jacket. Slow Loris has unisex hoodies ranging in size from XS-XXL in various colors and prints, all designed and screen printed by Guemes Island duo Jessica Lynch and Arlo Rumpff. Check these out online, or for a bigger selection visit their shop on Market Level 3, across from Orange Dracula.


8. Tea from MarketSpice

MarketSpice is over 100 years old, establishing their presence in the Pike Place Market in 1911! They carry nearly 200 bulk loose-leaf teas, though we won’t judge if you go straight for their signature Cinnamon Orange tea (yes, it's that good!).


9. Handmade Mug from Ting Ceramics

You've got your tea, but now you need the right drinking vessle. Seattle ceramic artist Michelle Ting creates wheel-thrown mugs, all one-of-a-kind with varying textures, colors and a mix of glazed and un-glazed surfaces. Michelle's Market days may vary, so be sure to check @tingceramics on Instagram for her weekly schedule.
