Who doesn’t love to laze around in their PJs on Sundays? Well, now you can stay comfy and still stroll around outside in your jammies! Start the year off right with the New Year’s Day Pajama Jam Party at Fremont Market. It takes place from 10-3 on January 1st, with a $100 cash prize for the Best Pajamas, and free Bloody Mary’s at the Red Door for the Best Ensemble Pajama Crew. To compete, check in from 11-12 at the front desk, which is an open stall on the right side of the market as you enter from Evanston Avenue. Winners will be announced at 12:14 p.m.

The Red Door, just steps away from the market, will be serving up beers on tap and Bloody Mary’s all day and into the night, regardless of whether you’re decked out in your PJs.

Handmade Tamales at Fremont Winter Feast

December 11th, 2016 by WK Leigh

Heading over to the Fremont Winter Feast today? With more than 20 food trucks and street stalls dishing it out over on Evanston Street, you’ll probably want to graze all day – so make sure you snag at least one handmade tamales from the los tamaleros at Frelard Tamales. Simply put, that’s “the guys making tamales.” And they do it muy bien!

The tamales are made by hand, from scratch, using a family recipe handed down for generations by co-owner Osbaldo’s family from Puerto Vallarta, 0n the west coast of Mexico. Each tamale is individually wrapped and tied in fresh corn husks.

Athough they’re a highlight of the Winter Feast this year, Osbaldo and his business partner, Denny, have a weekly spot at Fremont Market every Sunday — so don’t worry if you can’t make it over today. The duo has partnered with Sur 16, a Latin American restaurant in Capitol Hill, to create “the best tamales in town” — and I feel sure they’ve already climbed straight into that top-slot in Seattle.

Fremont Winter Feast at the Market This Sunday!

December 9th, 2016 by WK Leigh

It’s finally here, everybody — the Winter Feast Holiday Bazaar at Fremont Market! It’s this Sunday, December 11, at the usual market location on Evanston. At least 20 food trucks are on the roster this year, along with your favorite street food regulars. The event starts at 10 am and goes until 4 pm. There’s also at least 100 local shops decked out for the holidays, so come on over with an appetite and a shopping list.

Here’s a partial list of the food truck and street stall chefs dishing out their specialties at Fremont Winter Feast:

Fire and Scrape
Frelard Tamales
Wicked Good Grinders
The Biscuit Box
Mystery Bay Seafood Catering
Meat on a Mission

WE RECOMMEND: Check out a relative newbie on the scene at Fremont Market: The Pud. They’re cooking up real-deal traditional English Yorkshire Pudding served with roast beef, creamy mash, peas and sweet potatoes, all smothered in onion gravy. The owner and chef is actually from Yorkshire, so stop by to say hi (and hear his awesome accent!)
