“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
At Ken’s Market Queen Anne, our goal is to bring you the best tasting Bartlett Pears from local Washington growers who harvest at just the right time, allowing the fruit to hang on the tree until they are ripe, full of flavor and ready for our loyal customers to eat. Bartlett Pears are the only pear that change color from green when they are tart and crunchy, and ripen to a golden yellow that softens to a juicy, sweet and aromatic fruit. Pears ripen from the inside out, so try carefully squeezing the neck of a pear to test for softness. That is how you know a pear is at its peak and ready to eat. Not only are pears delicious, but they are also great from a nutritional standpoint as an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C.
Traditionally, Bartletts are known as a canning pear, but they are so much more. Try eating right out of your hand like an apple for a healthy snack, fresh sliced into a salad or present pear slices on a platter with cheeses and nuts. Bartletts are great for baking into a tart, and quick breads. For a warm way to start the day, try them in the morning poached or baked in a ramekin. For baked pears, set in a ramekin whole, and core removed. Add 3 tablespoons brown sugar into the cavity, dot with 1/2 tablespoon butter, chopped nuts, and sprinkle with ready-made pumpkin spice (available in our spice section) or sprinkle with your favorite spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger or any combination of those. Then bake in the oven at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes. Top with whipped cream and serve with toast to dip into the juices that surround the pear. This is a great way to start any day, but especially on these cold autumn mornings!
Where does this fabulous fruit come from? Well let us tell you a little story. Oh, and it is true!
In 17th Century England, a schoolmaster named John Stairs sold some pear cuttings to a grower named Williams, who immodestly named the resultant variety of pear after himself. The Williams Pear became a staple variety throughout the country.
At the end of the 18th century, the pear tree was brought to the New World. Enoch Bartlett, a merchant and farmer from Dorchester, Massachusetts, acquired the farm where the pear trees were planted. Mr. Bartlett named this pear after himself (he didn’t know the pear already had a name), and from then on, throughout the United States and Canada, the Williams Pear became known as the Bartlett Pear. Many years later, in 1828 when a new batch of pear trees arrived from England, it was realized the Bartlett Pear was the same as the Williams Pear, but by this time the name had stuck!
It's Pot Roast Time
Simple flavors and a nostalgic sense of warmth define the harvest season. Celebrate Autumnal Abundance with a hearty meal featuring a rich and savory Pot Roast from Painted Hills beef.
Ken's Market Queen Anne is proud to offer you premium beef cuts from Painted Hills. You might like to know that Painted Hills beef is 100% all natural, contains no nitrates, no preservatives, no added growth hormones and no antibiotics. Their pasture raised cattle are all fed a 100% vegetarian diet. This is what lends to the naturally flavorful and tender quality of their beef.
Our pot roasts are trimmed, boneless chuck roll and a bit marbled for extra flavor. They are usually cut to approximately 2 lbs, however if you need a larger size, call us, we'd love to custom cut a roast just for you.
Tracy’s Small~Batch Granola
Named the best granola by Oregonian Best Bites, Tracy’s Small~Batch Granola lets you eat well while helping others. 100% of the profits from this granola goes to fund their non-profit, Urban Gleaners, which rescues surplus food for the homeless and elementary schools. For any of Tracy’s Small~Batch Granola sold in Seattle, 25% of those profits go to Operation Sack Lunch and the rest to Urban Gleaners.
Tracy Oseran started making granola in 2004 after realizing she couldn’t find a granola she liked in Portland. Her recipe was a huge hit among family and friends and prompted Tracy to begin selling it commercially. In 2006, the same year she founded the food rescue organization Urban Gleaners, Tracy’s Small~Batch Granola was born. Since the beginning, the two organizations have been linked.
This granola is hand made in small batches (hence the name) in the Railway Express Building, a former auto garage in Portland’s historic Old Town neighborhood. If you walk past the facility any morning of the work week, you’ll likely smell the delicious cinnamon and baked oats wafting from the kitchen. They use the highest quality ingredients and organic ingredients whenever possible.

Celebrate the Flavors of Fall!
Autumn's minis are here. Whether savoring with a cup of coffee or tea our mini pecan and pumpkin pies are unbelievably rich and moist. They are a perfect way to end any meal and are the cutest things this side of puppies, kittens and giggling babies. Maybe the cutest thing ever. These little individual pastries are made from scratch by locally owned and operated Janeil's Alki Pie Company in Seattle. Our assortment includes three flavors: Bourbon Chocolate Pecan, Pumpkin and Pecan. All three are rich and decadent with a flaky crust.
These heavenly mini pie tarts are a perfect way to serve traditional pumpkin and pecan pies at your next celebration. You can count on them to be a sensation at your holiday open house from now through the New Year. And they are always Thanksgiving-ready for a festive family dinner.
It's Pumpkin Season, so our pumpkin obsession is understandable. Ken's Market Queen Anne wants to provide you with the quintessential symbols of Fall, including the perfect carving pumpkin. So we are offering pumpkins of every size for the most awesome Jack-O-Lantern. We also have the best Sugar Pie pumpkins for baking. To add classic appeal to your entryway or in a tablescape we have mini white and tiger striped pumpkins, fall corn, and all shapes and sizes of gourds. Get glowing by using the right tools. We stock a couple of varieties of Pumpkin Master's carving kits for all skill levels to create a perfect Jack-O-Lantern. Want to scare the crowds? We carry spider webs that stretch up to 200 feet.
To get the party going we have new harvest Honeycrisp apples for bobbing and wickedly delicious, decorated cookies and cupcakes.
The superstar fruit of the Fall season has to be the Honeycrisp Apple, which we are fortunate to have grown locally in Washington. And boy have we got them! These warm-hued yellow, red and green apples are as crisp and colorful as the season's changing leaves. With a flavor that is the perfect balance of sweet and tart, Honeycrisps pair perfectly with a variety of Autumn cravings from caramel or candied apples to apple pie and tarts. Try them as baked apples for breakfast. Pureé them and make a homemade gourmet apple sauce. Add them to buckwheat pancakes, to fruit salads like the Waldorf or as a great garnish in green salads. They are delicious roasted with a simmering pork roast. For a healthy after-school treat, try slicing and baking them for crisp apple chips.
The celebrated combination of caramel and apples signifies the glorious onset of Autumn. Stave off the first chill of the season with a warm mug of caramel apple cider, topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick. For an adult version, spike this hot apple cider with 2 oz of Tuaca, an Italian liqueur (do not stir). Top with fresh whipped cream, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon, garnish with a cinnamon stick. Smells and tastes remarkably like a hot apple pie!
