Seattle Weekly's Description
If there were apartments on top of the triangular building around Pine and Minor known as Melrose Market, there'd be little excuse to leave the building, and you'd finally be able to one-up your friends with the tiniest carbon footprint. Drive to the store for bacon? No need. Just stumble downstairs to Rain Shadow Meats for a slab of pork belly, which you'll cure yourself. Catering to the obsessively eco-conscious, Rain Shadow emphasizes the local and sustainable, though they're not above bringing in some out-of-area meats. Some tunes for the hot afternoon? Sonic Boom Records, purveyors of all thing audible from LPs to CDs, also emphasizes the local and will have the new Damien Jurado record, but they're not above stocking James Blunt, either. A little cheese to get the evening started? Calf & Kid artisan cheese shop-one of the few remaining enterprises in which the longer your wares have to travel, the better-will humor you with cheese knowledge that you can nod along with in agreement, but they won't begrudge you for not understanding what the hell they're talking about, other than that the cheese they just sliced in front of you is absolutely delicious.
