For Seattle residents, Pike Place Market has long been a favorite place to shop for holidays and special occasions throughout the year. Many generations of Jewish families have shopped for traditional foods served during Passover from the Market's highstalls (year-round produce vendors) and farm tables, seafood and meat markets, and specialty foods stores.
At various stages during the telling of the Passover story at the Seder—the festive holiday meal celebrated on the first night of the holiday—symbolic foods are often introduced and eaten, such as charoset (a paste made of apples, nuts and wine), gefilte fish (seasoned fish meal matzah balls).
Whether you’re looking for fresh horseradish or parsley, fish or brisket, or anything in between like eggs, nuts and fruit, you’re sure to find the ingredients to make your Passover meaningful and memorable from various Pike Place Market merchants.
