  1. You can go uphill to Broadway for shopping or downhilll to the Pike Place market. There is a farmers market on Capitol hill which may be closer than the one downtown at the Olympic sculpture park.

    1. In terms of groceries, there's a Whole Foods on Denny and Westlake, and a QFC on Broadway and Pike. For natural foods Madison Market isn't too far. You do have the Broadway farmer's market, and don't forget about Pike Place Market.
