Marigold and Mint’s Katherine Anderson.

When she’s not running the show at her newly minted shop Marigold and Mint, you can find Katherine Anderson at her other outpost: a several-acre farm on the Snoqualmie River. There she harvests the seasonal organic goods—herbs, produce, and flowers—that line the Melrose Market boutique.

While checking out the Melrose Market Street Festival, swing in to stop and smell the New Dawn roses—summer’s their season.

Vita, Stumptown, or Starbucks? Stumptown.

Favorite way to burn calories: Running as fast as I can.

Where do you take out-of-town guests to eat? Sitka and Spruce.

Do you use recipes or wing it? Recipes. My favorite cookbook is At Home in Provence by Patricia Wells.

What’s your guilty food pleasure? Ice cream at Tilt on Rainier Avenue.

Are you or have you ever been a vegan? Only for a week here or there.

What’s your desert-island condiment? Pepperoncini.

Dessert or appetizer? Appetizer.

Three restaurants that sum up Seattle: Spinasse, Canlis, and Dick’s.
