After filling our bellies full of Skillet deliciousness, I felt like I needed to go out and do something. I thought it’d be a waste to spend the last few hours before our flight just sitting at Rachel’s place watching TV. Thank the magical powers of Google because a few minutes later, I discovered that Bellevue Farmers Market was on that day and not too far of a drive from where we were. Jackpot!
Naturally the first thing I noticed were the food trucks. What can I say? My eyes are always on the lookout for nomnoms. The first we stopped by was The Box.
Feeling a little peckish, we got a couple of steamed Asian buns filled with pork belly (right) and shredded pork (left). My goodness were they ever delicious! The pork belly bun came with a slaw dressed in Asian flavours, and the shredded pork had a nice freshness from more Hawaiian flavours. Mmmmm.
Then we strolled down to Veraci Pizza to partake in some delicious thin crust pizza consumption. We got a slice (which is actually a quarter of an 18-inch pie – that’s a pretty gigantic slice) of their Market Special (I think it was called a deluxe?).
OMG this pizza was some of the most amazing thin crust pizza I’ve ever had. The combination of toppings with their signature three-cheese blend (Romano, Parmesan, Mozzarella) on a beautifully crisp, wood-fired crust was just what we were craving.
On the way out we picked up some gorgeous macarons from Lilli Pilli.
And with that, our Seattle trip was complete. Hitting the farmers market was a nice way to spend time out in the sun (an unnaturally sunny day for us, having seen rain the majority of the trip) and eat some good food.
