city market

City Market is a small grocery and deli in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. It's probably best known for the humorous sandwich board signs which regularly grace the sidewalk in front of the store. These witty signs have been delighting hill dwellers for years. I've been enjoying them myself since I moved to Seattle three years ago, but I only recently learned the identity of the artist behind them - City Market's manager Cain Morehead. Apparently the first sign was created on a whim and the tradition took off from there. This is just a sampling of a few personal favorites, but can see more at Moorehead's myspace and flickr pages.
