Hey skillet nation !!
we have an idea we would like to implement. Seattle doesn’t have enough street food, and we want to help change that. We are toying with the idea of creating a weekend street food market. We would like to have a parking lot of some kind perhaps in a neighborhood say ballard, fremont, cap hill, udistrict, beacon hill etc…where us and maybe 5-10 other street food vendors could set up for a saturday and sunday during the day and perhaps even into the evening. I believe it could be a great experiment (and successful) and perhaps couple it with some farmers, musicians etc…anyways…if you have any suggestions or perhaps a location…please don’t hesitate to email me (josh) at email@example.com…
and thanks…we want to make seattle the epicenter of street food..!!!
Beacon Hill currently lacks a farmers’ market. Something like this would be an interesting alternative. Perhaps at El Centro, next to the train station (once it’s opened)? An event like this would draw visitors to the neighborhood, potentially helping the Hill’s economy, as well as giving us something interesting to do on the weekends. However, it’s possible the local restaurateurs would feel threatened by potential weekend competition. Have an opinion? Let Josh know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to Slog for the heads-up.

We were actually just talking about this. Seems like a great idea to me.
Hallava Falafel is a portable street food vendor that could be a great addition to this concept. I think this is an exciting concept. Hope it comes together…
Can somebody smell street food from Mexico.
If you need more vendors to fill the street food market, please sign me up!
Maybe they could knock down the Christian Graphetti Center on the corner of 15th and Columbia, and set up the street food market across the street from McPherson’s.
…but, maybe I just think that would be a good idea because then I could walk there. Honestly, anywhere on the hill would be great!
