Culinary Boom Towns | Seattle’s 4 Fastest Growing Foodie Neighborhoods

By L.M. Archer, Foodable Contributor

Seattle’s skyline says it all — the town’s booming. Construction cranes loom large over all areas of the city, threatening to overshadow the trademark Space Needle. This boom also brings higher tax revenue. The City of Seattle anticipates a 4.5% growth in 2016, thanks largely to Amazon and Boeing.

“Boeing and Amazon have become major drivers of the growth in local employment,” reports Office of the Mayor Ed Murray’s 2016 Budget Highlights.

The boom town effect trickles down to other economic sectors, including restaurants. Classics like Canlis, Anthony’s Homeport, and Daniel’s Broiler still hold court for Seattle’s elite sports figures, corporate executives and media elites with high-net worth and disposable income.

But such old guard sites now jostle for equal time with an influx of upstart eateries elbowing to serve Seattle’s high-income, high-octane, high-tech hipsters. These up-and-comer consumers demand trendy tipples, craft cocktails, farm-to-table fare, and casual vibes suitable for their frenetic, far-flung family and professional lives.

Additionally, the Port of Seattle reports continued double-digit growth in passenger traffic to the Emerald City in 2015, both by air and cruise ship. Seattle’s cuisine reflects the escalating demands expected of an international hub, including Asian-fusion finds like Wild Ginger, group-friendly gastropubs like Spur, and Northwest cuisine cafe/bars like Local 360.

Moreover, the growth doesn’t just ‘trickle-down.’ It trickles out. Neighborhoods like Ballard, SODO, Georgetown, and West Seattle benefit, too, resulting in their own ‘boomlets.’

Here, Foodable WebTV Network takes a peek at four of Seattle’s most popular foodie regions on the rise…READ MORE.

Eating Locavore | More than just about food…

Eating Locavore | More than just about food…

Hey folks…I wanted to share this cool TED talk from Josh Slotnick of Missoula, Montana’s Garden City Harvest and the PEAS Farm that I came across while researching a FoodableTV project on the locavore food movement.

Watch this video, and you’ll never look at eating locavore the same again.

Eating locavore isn’t just about eating foods produced within 100-200 miles of your home.

Eating locavore isn’t just about saving  money.

It’s about creating and sustaining community.

Enjoy!

Truckin’…@FEEDSonoma

Truckin’…@FEEDSonoma

One simple act sometimes leads to something extraordinary.

Case in point:

 A very cool program called F.E.E.D (Farmers Exchange of Earthy Delights) Sonoma.FEED Sonoma.

I first learned about F.E.E.D. Sonoma while doing research for a current project, and just felt I had to share their story with you.

F.E.E.D. Sonoma  brings together growers and restaurants, delivers produce from over fifty small Sonoma farmers to area eateries.

They do it with one refrigerated truck. One truck delivering earthly delights destined for you, eager foodies. They need more.

Click here to help.  Cheers!
