Monthly Art Walks are favorite community events in many Seattle neighborhoods. Last night I strolled Upper Queen Anne's Third Thursday art walk and ended up here at Eat Local. This shop opened last year and features chef-prepared meals made with locally grown ingredients. Busy people short on meal prep time can eat healthy, delicious food at home and know where, how, and by whom their food was grown. It was fun to explore their cases of scads of appetizing sounding recipes which come in single, double and larger multiple portions, frozen and ready to take home. They even have children's favorite foods as well as specialty items, fresh cheeses, wines, coffee beans, and baked goods. Outside several artists and craftspeople had booths set up in the parking area, a musician was serenading people on the front steps, and within upstairs was an artist's reception, while downstairs there were beautiful posters and handmade cards. This was just one of the shops participating in Art Walk.
