Why haven’t other businesses at Pike Place Market adopted some sort of product-tossing routine? It gets the fishmongers a lot of attention. How about tossing some nectarines around?
For 37 years at the market –18 at this stand–, Mike Osborn has done fine without throwing anything. Instead, he just lets people try out the fruit. I get a cherry and it’s delicious. “Quite possibly one of the best pieces of fruit you’ll have all year,” he tells people passing by.
