This past weekend we visited our friends who live in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. They were great hosts, showing us Seattle's best. We visited the market, galleries, farmers markets, shops, parks and great restaurants and bakeries. Considering all the pizza we make between the two of us, it's fitting that the first Seattle post is about the Ballard Farmers' Market. The market is a block or two long, with a double row of tents.

We cruised around for breakfast since the cafe we planned to go to was closed for the holiday. Luckily, these girls were cranking out some delicious crepes. We split a ham, cheese and spinach crepe and a Nutella and banana one with whipped cream.

Sorry, no pics of our actual crepes. Between coffee, crepes and cameras, our hands were full. They were delicious, although I could have used a bit more filling in the ham and cheese one.

We bought ingredients for dinner (more later) and the boys got in line for pizza while we finished up. The flight attendant and the guy seated next to us both raved about the pizza at the market. Here's the clay oven cart.

And the pizza. This was the special of the day and it was delicious. Asparagus, onion, tomatoes. The crust was very, very thin. Super crispy on the edges and softer in the middle. Just the right balance of toppings. Fresh. Hot. Slightly smoky. We also had a meat version with a light tomato sauce. I preferred the veggie.
