A big day for Metropolitan Market in Sammamish

Metropolitan Market celebrates it's grand opening in Sammamish with record crowds.  Hundreds of people were lined up around the block for the 9:00 AM launch.  If you got a parking spot you were one of the lucky ones as cars were seen parked to the west as far as 218th Ave SE and pedestrians walked from Sammamish City hall to the north.  In attendance were the Sammamish City Council along with Sammamish Chamber of commerce members and Metropolitan Market employees from other stores.

Inside the market is an array of beautiful and artfully displayed foods of every sort.  The perimeter of the store features the meat, produce, deli and specialty items including the bakery cafe, pizzeria, poke bar and many more.  Truthfully it was hard to see everything because the store was packed with shoppers.  It is evident that this is exactly what Sammamish residents want.  The upscale nature,  high quality and extensive selection are clearly a home run.  The middle aisles of the market are the standard grocery items, staples, canned goods etc. still with the high quality and variety expected from the Metropolitan market stores.

As for me I am looking forward to enjoying the convenient location and 24 hour availability Metropolitan Market will provide.  See you at the market!

These are the best-educated neighborhoods in Washington state - Puget Sound Business Journal

Some of the data might surprise you. Pullman, for example, has a higher percentage of advanced degree holders than any of Bellevue's ZIP codes. That's due to Washington State University and the high percentage of professors and graduate students who live in the area, of course. Seattle's University District was also high on the list for the same reason.


And Sammamish, not surprisingly is in the top 10...
