Romance, enchantment and local purveyors unite in Capitol Hill’s Melrose Market. A stroll through this magical indoor market and you will find everything that you need to assemble a perfect dinner at home.

Taylor Shellfish
just recently opened its doors in the market. They have live and shucked oysters, Mediterranean mussels, live Dungeness crab and lobster, Qualicum scallops, manila clams, Geoduck, Xinh Dwelley’s oyster stew and more.

This is one-stop browsing and shopping with local ingredients all under one roof. There is cheese from the Calf and the Kid, local meats and charcuterie from Rain Shadow Meats, produce and flowers from Marigold and Mint, wine from Bar Ferd’nand or stop for lunch at Sitka and Spruce where Northwest ingredients and intriguing spices take on a life of their own in a communal atmosphere. If it is just a quick bite you want, grab a generous -sized sandwich made of natural and organic ingredients at Homegrown,.
