Our Seattle revelry is not yet over. This time, feast your eyes (imagination included) as we share with you our PIKE PLACE MARKET experience. Yes, the same place where the FIRST ever STARBUCKS is located.
Overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront, it commenced operation in August 17, 1907. To date, PIKE PLACE MARKET is the oldest fully operational farmers' market in the United States offering fresh produce, seafood, meat, bread, spices, unique foodie find, and handicrafts among others.
And true to its claim as a full-blown tourist attraction, people globally (estimated to be over 10 million annually) come in droves to experience the market's vast offerings, and witness the world-famous crew of fishmongers throwing fish and horsing around with visitors.
Below are some more snap shots of this food lovers' haven. One day is not enough for first timers AND hungry tourists like us - Happy Viewing!
