The selection and quality of the food is an embarrassment. Nothing was appetizing. Even the produce wasn't very fresh. Extremely overpriced, too. I would say only go if you were completely desperate. Otherwise, you are better of at Trader Joe's, just a few blocks further. Better yet, make your way over to World Food in the Pearl District. You will... More

unique, clean, friendly, with awesome service. Pasta works carries all kinds of cheeses and fresh hand made pasta, chop shop does a great job with sandwiches...the fish market carries fresh fish daily, and Raw Raw Produce carries unique local organic produce hard to find in your typical market.

Took an apartment in the neighborhood for five days and we fed ourselves, breakfast and lunch and after dinner wine, from this place. Gorgeous proteins and beautiful eggs (all colors, including pale blue), fine cheese, nice wine, and a seafood station packed full of gorgeous oysters and other seafood. It's a little spendy, but a lot cheaper than eating out.... More

This grocery store / co-op is like four or five stores in one. The butcher, fish counter, deli, etc. all owned by and staffed by specialists in each area. Personal, knowledgable service assists even the newbie prepare a great meal

City Market only carries top-quality food and it's not a practical place to shop for everyday items (imho and budget). But it reminds me of the Farmer's Market in L.A., with several small shops renting space inside the grocery, so you can make one stop and get lovely flowers and fantastic fresh and local produce to go with something from...

We LOVE City Market. It is a tiny market in NW. My kids are grown, and it is SOOO nice not to do the Costco thing and go here instead. Wonderful cheeses, Pasta works, wine selection, fresh fruit. The bread is amazing. Love it.

Feels like a quaint european market. Very fresh produce, flowers, seafood, bread - excellent cheese and charcuterie selection. Wines are shockingly reasonable in price. And the deli ("Chop") makes amazing sandwiches! Go!
