Roadtrip to Pacific Northwest: Pike Place Market
According to Wikipedia, Pike Place Market is Seattle's most popular destination and the 33rd most visited tourist attraction in the world, wow! I did not expect that the market trumps the iconic Space Needle. However, I shouldn't be all that surprised, given that during this trip we visited the market 3x and only once went to the Space Needle. Perhaps the fact that the Space Needle requires an entrance fee may have been the reason why it is not the most visited attraction in Seattle.
Well, we did visit the market 3x during our 3-day Seattle leg of the road trip and each time I couldn't just look, I have to photograph as well.
The market carries most everything you need or want, fresh produce, meat products, fresh seafood, flowers, etc. Artisans bring their produce and their creations. Too many things to see which makes one's head spin if you're not careful. Sometimes, too overwhelming.
By the way, the original Starbucks cafe is somewhere here. We never got around to visiting it. People say the lines are migraine-inducing, so we passed. Lately, long lines are my pet peeves.
Here are the photos of our visits to Pike Place Market.
At Beecher's Hand Made cheese you can get sandwich and eat while you watch them make cheese. The chairs are large milk jugs.
On one visit, we got lucky with the sunset.
