Vashon Island in August

Hey everybody,

Visiting VI in August, and wondering about the Island's food scene. La Boucherie, farm stands - what can you recommend?

I did a Greater Seattle search, and came up empty.

Thank you!

Hey all,

We (7 of us) will be in the above areas Dec/January of this year & I'm wondering about farmer's markets, good grocery stores, restaurant recs, etc.

Thank you!

Sorry I've been offline; I think they're done for the season. Will check in with you if not, though - where in TX are you xplanted from?

Hey all,

I know Heritage Foods is selling these, but I can't use 10 lbs. Does anyone know if they're being sold at a farmer's market in the area?

Thank you,

Cheap eats with a 3-year old close to Sea Tac

Hey all,

Coming into Sea Tac at around 4pm and staying at an airport hotel - can I have some recs for a good, cheap dinner spot? Happy to stay at the airport, but not sure about kid friendlyness there.

Am already planning to use light rail/buses for the Pancake Chef in the am, so am willing to travel some for dinner on public trans. also.

Thank you!

Whole Paycheck (P St) discontinued gumdrops -

Hey all,

Anyone know how to get hold of the pomegranate gumdrops WF used to carry? We've tried ordering through the store, but never have had the order filled.

I'd be up for an alternative purveyor, if anyone can recommend one?

Thanks,
Fraser

Great thin-crust (Roman style) pizza

I'm on the email list for this place, and got a message that a new pizza oven was wired. We tried it tonight, and Chris Brophy makes a great, thin-crust pie. We tried the Duke Kahanamoko - prosciutto, pineapple, fresh mozz and a rosemaryish tomato sauce, and also the Chef's Special. He forgot about that one, and though he let us eat it, he also made a second one for us to bring home at no charge. Small but decent beer & wine selection.

Hey all - looking for a good place to pick up fresh fish. Any recs? Any experience with the SW Waterfront fish market?

Thanks,

Moving to the Detroit area & wondering

Wow, thank you everybody! I'm not sure yet where, exactly, we'll be living, but the job possibility is at Wayne State. I did a little digging, as suggested, and I am very delighted with the abundance & variety of crops grown in MI. We're looking forward to discovering it all.

Moving to the Detroit area & wondering

about local food there. I'm in DC now, and utterly spoiled for choice among the farmer's markets and amazing ethnic markets/restaurants. I would love some idea of what's around Detroit as far as those things go. Thank you!

Good, consistent, grocery store in DC?

For things like excellent chocolate, for instance. Whole Paycheck (at least the 14th & P store) has been wildly inconsistent for a while now, and I'm looking for someplace new in DC to try. Suggestions?
