"Chef Alvin over at @mktseattle heads to the neighborhood farmers market every week to select fresh ingredients for his menu. Here’s last weeks haul of seasonal produce. Follow their Instagram stories for a look into the back-of-the-house scene, menu planning, trips to the market and a healthy dose of restaurant shenanigans. #esr10years #eatlocal #farmersmarket #flatlayfood #haul"
