Port Orchard Public Market, a new destination filled with food finds

Staff writerJune 20, 2014 

On the way down to Bay Street from state Route 16, I made an unexpected discovery about Port Orchard.

Convenience stores. The bank. Even the feed store. They all come with fetching, million-dollar waterfront views.

Port Orchard’s proximity to Sinclair Inlet made it an ideal waterside timber town, and it was the first Kitsap County city to incorporate in 1890.

And its current life still is rooted in its working waterfront.

Much of Bay Street’s businesses surround an active marina – with guest moorage – and in the middle of the business district is a foot ferry that shuttles explorers between Port Orchard and Bremerton.

New attractions along Bay Street make this town a quick half-day trip for eaters in search of a food adventure.

The newly opened Port Orchard Public Market was my first stop on a recent visit, followed by a handful of restaurants recommended by the locals.
