Pike Market Food Bank

I recently had the pleasure of shooting another story for Edible Seattle: From Farm to Food Bank: a look inside the Pike Market Food Bank.
I had a blast going down and talking to Peter and Brian and the rest of the small crew that works out of Pike Place.  We'd head out to pick up extra goods from the vendors of the market nice and early in the AM.  Peaches, pastries, bread, carrots, La Panier baguettes, all piled high on the cart.  Its an amazingly efficient, and small, team that serves 746 households and 600 walk ins each week.
It's worth a read and you can pick it up on news stands now.  Before I shot the story, I had absolutely no idea there was a food bank tucked away in the area... also a secret little garden.  I'm sure the market has a ton of secret spots hidden away.

Here are a couple outtakes from my rainy days down at the market:
