The Fremont Sunday Market to Become Seattle’s Largest Street Food District?

Seattle’s quirky, artsy-attituded Fremont is quickly becoming the “Street Food Center of the Universe”  this summer  at the long-time, Sunday staple, the Fremont Sunday Market.

The Fremont Sunday Market is no stranger to helping to support Seattle’s evolving micro-business culture; from local artisans, antiques, organic farmers to the culinary talents by local “chef-preneurs”.

On any given Sunday, choose from authentic Indian Tandoori chicken by Tandoozy, Oaxaqueños Tamales by Los Agaves and traditional Venezuelan Arepas by Chicarepa to name a few of the long-time crowd favorites to snack on weekly.

Jon Hegeman, co-founder and organizer of the Fremont Sunday Market has been slowly building this tasty, international showcase of street food vendor by vendor. Keeping the public fed is key to browsing the market “Food Rules at the Market, it’s the fuel that keeps people exploring the market in Fremont all afternoon”.

This year, Jon is teaming up with another local event organizer and son, Ryan Reiter (Fremont Outdoor Movies, Red White & Dead Zombie Walk), and the guy behind last year’s popular, Mobile Food Rodeo to add to the weekly menu a few of Seattle’s top trucks.

Reiter who lived in Los Angeles back in 2008 when the SoCal food tucks scene began to emerge and take-off  says “People were always looking for that new thing, the opportunity to discover, taste and share it; be it a new boutique, trend or even a food truck around the corner; it has this  irresistible affordability that gets you hooked and wanting more”.

Starting this Sunday, March 25th – catch hometown staple Skillet Street Food, along with debuting newcomers like the Japanese-style Tokyo Dog and crepe masters by Portland’s Crisp Creperie starting this Sunday, March 25th and will turn into a weekly feature as the summer weather returns.
