“Its Halloween all-year-round here,” says owner Chad Smith.
“And you can create just about any alternative look you want:
punk, hippie, biker, raver, kandi-raver. . .etc.”
Orange Dracula was Smith’s EBAY handle when he was selling
his original pins, with amusing sayings, online. He was peddling
other items as well, including monster model kits from ETSI,
who eventually opted to sell only wholesale to shop owners.
Hence the Orange Dracula
shop, with plenty of monster
model kits, was born. Perhaps
you’d like to try making a large

After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, and lately it
is being praised for its many health benefits
and June is National Tea month. To learn
more, come celebrate at the cozy Perennial
Tea Room, in Post Alley. There are inside
and outside tables to stop for a minute and
regain some sanity (or take it to go).
The friendly and knowledgeable staff enjoy
teaching people about what tea is (versus
tisane) and introducing one-and-all to the
world of tons of tantalizing teas available in
their aromatic jars.
Tea has been historically promoted for
having a variety of positive health benefits.
Recent human studies suggest that green
tea may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer,
promote oral health, reduce blood pressure, help with weight control, improve
antibacterial and antivirasic activity, and
many more positive benefits. . . .plus, being delicious (hot or iced).
Market Spice, in the Main Arcade, just
past don & Joe’s Meat Market, also has
tastes, advice and a wonderful selection.
More Farmers/
More Markets
Beginning mid-month the farmers portion
of our Farmers’ Market grows, and sprouts
satellites for Seattelites.
On June 21, our annual farmers market
(that is the additional tents of local and organic farmers set-up another row out on the
bricks of Pike Place), continuing our tradition begun in August 1907, when farmers
gathered in the newly founded public marketplace to sell fresh produce to Seattle citizens from the back of their wagons. Today,
Washington farmers continue to sell at the
Market year-round, 362 days a year. . .offering just a lagniappe more, while the crops
are coming in.
During the bountiful growing season, the
Market operates a designated farmers market on the street of Pike Place, Friday-Sunday, though farmers are also at the Market both inside the Main Arcade daystalls
alongside Crafters and outside on Pike
Place on other days of the week.
The Market also operates three weekly Express
farmers markets. One at City Hall Plaza; one in
South Lake Union at 410 Terry Ave North, and
new this year, one in Occidental Park in Pioneer
Square.
“The farmers participating in the Market’s
year-round farm program and summer
farmers markets play an essential role in the
health of the Market community and the
greater Downtown neighborhood,” expalines
PDA Executive Director Ben Franz-Knight.
“These farmers provide Seattle residents the
option to buy fresh, abundant and in-season
produce in a variety of locations, days and
hours, helping to build healthier lives.”
Leslie Smith, Executive Director of the
Alliance for Pioneer Square adds that,
“We are excited for the Express Market
to come to Pioneer Square. The option
to buy fresh, local produce and flowers
over the summer is a perfect complement to all of the exciting changes taking place in the neighborhood.”
Some Market farmers, like Bill and
Mary Kay Razey, of Naches, Washington, belong to a farming tradition that
dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century.
Bill’s great-grandfather bought 160
acres in 1902. Bill’s father, Dan, and his
brother, Glen, continued to farm the
land, converting it to fruit orchards in
the 1930s. Bill and his wife, Mary Kay,
began selling at Pike Place Market in
1982 and continue to grow the organic
cherries the farm is known for as well
as apples, peaches, plums, grapes and
tomatoes.
This year, shoppers can find the Razeys’
cherries at the Pike Place and Pioneer
Square farmers markets, offering their
dazzling bounty of bootie.
Other farmers have begun new family
traditions, such as the Lee family of Lee’s
Fresh Produce.
Lue and Pha Lee planted their first vegetables in the family garden. Soon, what began as a hobby grew into a business, and in
2003, Pha began selling her produce at the
Market. In five years, Lee’s Fresh Produce
grew from five to nearly 40 acres. Pha and
Lue’s children, Christy and Xiong, now
run the successful family business, which
sells produce to farmers markets and grocery stores throughout Seattle. Their growing philosophy is dedicated to traditional
farming methods that sustain the soil and
create delicious vegetables of high nutritional quality and vibrant color that are
prized by local cooks and chefs.
These and many other Market farmers will
bring their seasonal produce to Pike Place
Market and its Express markets.
Market shoppers can learn new tips on
preparing the season’s bounty at Chefs on
the Cobblestones, during Sunday cooking
demonstrations, at the intersection of Pike
Place and Stewart Street. Chef Jack Speiss of
the Market’s own Le Pichet, will kick off the
demos on Sunday, June 23, at high noon.
Keep reading to learn more about
these ongoing specific summer events,

or just show up! Or, if you are a farmer
interested in selling at Pike Place Market or our Express markets, contact

Busker News: Don’t Forget to Tip
As you explore the nooks and crannies of the Market this season, the varied and valiant
band of Market street performers, aka Buskers, remind you that they work soul-y, for tips.
The Pike Place Performers Guild is an organized entity, buskers are permitted, spaces are assigned, times limited, etc.
Our own Howlin’ Hobbit would like to remind dispel the myth that they are paid by the PDA.
They appreciate being appreciated and noticed for the work they are doing, “even if you are just
taking a photo.”
Learning About Wayfinding
Phase I of the PDA’s thorough wayfinding signage project was approved by the Pike
Place Market Historical Commission in May. A Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit bids
for fabricating and installing this part of the project was distributed in May and received a
good response—thirteen vendors requested the RFP and bid documents. The proposals are
due in early June. The PDA anticipates choosing a vendor and presenting a resolution for
the work to the PDA Council later this month. They hope to have this part of the project
installed by November 1.

is on! The crowds are here and all
up to a balsamic boil! So
much to report (but much is too hot
and scandalous for print, email me
for a prrivate tour). The top story is
Pike Place Chowder’s return to The
National Chowder Competition, in
Rhode Island, after taking First Place
three years in a row they were forced
to wait 10 years before they could return with a new recipe, just as we went
to press a group of 20 ChowderHeadz
brought hundreds of gallons of bravely
FedEx-ed chowder east, ready to bring
it on! (We’ll let you know what happens!)
Also, there was the fish fiasco that is
Copper River Salmon. The highly
marketed fish came to down, from
Alaska, via airplanes and red carpets,
making its way ASAP to Pike Place. The
first day was such a big deal that there
were literally three film crews covering
Fish Mongers and all the hullabaloo,
woah. As always, the price began high
(Pure Food Fish had the best price
and the biggest lines), then slowly cost
went down as the market flooded. . .
Big talk continues to swirl about PC-1N,
where will the funding come from? How
will the new spaces be embellished?
What is a ‘local improvement district’?

A LETTER FROM HOME
D
ear Don,
Sorry for the long delay in answering your last letter. Personal letters
are low on my priority pole lately. My
news sources don’t cover your Australian events – unless it is bad news
with gripping film like fires or floods,
which seem to be abundant Down
Under. I’ll take no news to be good
news and that you and Terri are OK.
Here in Seattle we have odd-year politics with a city election. The big race
is for mayor, with half the City Council up for re-election.
Our incumbent Mayor, Mike McGinn,
has had a bumpy four years, starting
off with a public reversal of a campaign
promise about the Big Dig tunnel from
Pioneer Square to Aurora at Denny.
Early in office he reversed himself
and then went on to commit other
gaffs. My favorite is when he rode his
bike to a reception to meet a high profile visiting foreign official in his colorful biking Spandex.
With another personality, this might
have been charming, but as it was, it
simply showed disrespect. This is his
first elected office and likely his last.
The mayor has drawn seven primary
opponents and although his incumbency may be worth 15% to 20% of the vote,
with such a large and strong field, he’ll
be lucky to survive the August primary.
In the Market the favorite son is Peter Steinbrueck, whose father Victor
famously saved the Market in 1971,
and Peter led the group that sent the
New York real estate usurpers packing
back East in 1991.
The rest of the field is led by Ed Murray,
a state senator, who has been a strong
money raiser. Others are a City Council member and assorted political and
business hopefuls. I’m looking to see Peter and Ed in the General Election.
Also on the ballot is an initiative from
John Fox, head of the Seattle Displacement Coalition, which I support, asking
for District Elections for City Council,
which I oppose because it would dilute
the Market’s considerable existing clout
down at City Hall.
Everything about politics continues
to be local – any local interest over the
general interest.
Seattle continues to grow (latest
population: 636,000) at a rate of
12,000 a year. The city unemployment rate is the lowest in the state
at 5.4%, a pre-recession level. Amazon continues to expand physically
in town.
It started on Second Avenue in the
1990s, moved, once or twice and then
took over the old Marine Hospital on
Beacon Hill.
That became too small so it had Paul
Allen build three big office structures
in South Lake Union sometimes
called Allentown. Others filled in the
other spaces and now the area acquired the nickname Amazonville.
The Market has a successful satellite
farmers market there in the summer.
But now Amazon has started to build
a three-tower center on three blocks
bought from Clise Properties on Sixth
Avenue at Stewart. Plus, just yesterday, Jeff Bezos announced two six-story dual spheroid eco-globes between
the towers.
Where will it all end?
Boeing is back flying its refitted
787 again, Microsoft is doing more
with hardware and still sells a lot of
software and games, Starbucks rolls
along (dumping our old red tile SBC
shop in the Market – which is being
replaced with a ginger beer distillery), and Costco, your current employer, does well and continues as a
good corporate citizen.
Last night an overloaded semi hit
the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River
in Mt. Vernon. Two vehicles dropped
into the river, but no lives were lost.
It made national news, and federal
money for this National Defense
transit corridor will get it replaced
in quick-time.
The bridge story made me think of
our trips years ago over that bridge
into the North Cascades on our way
up and back. The snow pack in the
Cascades this winter has been heavy
and the high trails won’t be open till
late June, I suppose. That thought
brought me to the word games we
used to play on the trail. We had
fun making up compound words for
odd situations in life. I am sad to report that the New York Times Sunday Magazine has a regular feature
called “That Should Be A Word.” Two
recent entries: Sobtimist (cries of
good fortune) or lachrymost (biggest
crier at an event). We should have
taken notes.
Speaking of language, I was caught

WHAT’S HAPPENING continued from page 3
Tour Guide Guidelines Are In Place
Begun last month, businesses conducting walking tour groups, in the Market must be registered with the PDA, provide valid insurance coverage, and
agree to established rules in an effort to minimize conflicts with our own
commercial businesses.
The new permit for tour leaders is required when they are escorting walking tours inside Market building. When obtaining the pass, the tour leaders
are agreeing to:
• Display their permit at all times when leading a tour in the Market.
• Become familiar with historical information and current operations of
the Market, ie roll call, high stalls versus low stalls, etc.
• Ensure that tour groups do not block store entrances or hallways from
regular business traffic.
• Not lead tour groups into businesses without approval.
• Limit carry-along signage to an 8-inch circle, or less.
If you notice a problem with a tour group, please quietly introduce yourself to the guide and let them know of the issue. If the problem is unresolved, please take down the name of the tour and the tour guide, the date
and time, the location, and a short description of the incident and forward
the information to John Turnbull or Allison Krueger at the PDA office.
Registration for tour organizations and guides is available at the PDA office, Monday through Friday.
The PDA hope this will help issue issues that have arisen such as blocking
pedestrian flow, “overtaking” businesses and creating congestion.
The Mayor Introduces Market Garden
1
The Market is proud to reveal its very own vegetable garden, located on
the roof of the LaSalle Building, in the designated public area, just outside
of Maximilien’s outdoor dining space.
Built by the PDA, and their group of VISTA volunteers, 16 to 18 different crops will be grown in the specially constructed garden boxes. It is
sort of an experiment, bring life to our own urban garden oasis.
This is your ad proof. Please review it carefully.

titled “Till Death Do Us Part,” depicting two embracing skeletons
in a heart-type motif.
For a stag gift, you might consider “The Macho Kit,” which has a
pair of large, mirrored sunglasses, a glue-on mustache and a bottle
of Brute aftershave.
The bride-to-be might enjoy the heart-shaped sunglasses.
There is a wall full of posters, among them works by Mme. Talbot.
Smith describes her as “half Gothic, half carnival as though from
the turn of the century.”
Besides buttons, Smith makes bath balms, magnets, candles and
more, often within the store. He invites you to decorate your jacket
with a wide selection of pins and patches.
Craft supplies, such as glow-in-the-dark skull beads, will tempt
your artistic tendencies.
Barbie fans may be interested in Fortune-teller Barbie or other
darkener versions of the lass, like Bride of Frankenstein or Morticia
Adams Barbie. Perhaps you’d prefer to see Ken clad as Frankenstein
or Gomez Adams.
Remember “Ghost Busters”? You can buy your very own jar of
slime, complete with a tiny plastic zombie.
For in-store-fun, you can use Orange Dracula’s prop box to dressup for the photo booth, which has been known to
photograph up to seven faces at once! Four dollars
will get you four pictures, developed on the spot.
Memorabilia includes Spudnut postcards. Perhaps
you’d like to purchase a deck of Tarot Cards for your
own fortune telling purposes. Or, you can consult
the coin-operated mechanical fortune-teller.

“Since we’re a Woolworths for weirdos, we have
a coffee counter,” says Smith. “You’ll find drip coffee, packaged foods and a bottle-vending pop machine.”
“Since we’re a drug store, we have things to can’t
find in other shops in the Market,” he continues,
citing a list from toothpaste to batteries for your

Mini Market Almanac
June’s Full Strawberry Moon derives its name from being was
universal to every Algonquin tribe. However, in Europe they called it
the Rose Moon. Also because the relatively short season
for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June . . .
So the full Moon that occurs during June was christened for the strawberry!
(But what about June-uary*?)

December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn.

*JUN-u-ary is a new term being rolled around describing the [freakish] cold snap
phenomenon occurring here, in the Pacific Northwest, during much of June.
