Pike Place Market Seattle, Washington
I arrived in Seattle yesterday. Today I went to the famous Pike Place Market. It is close to the waterfront and was about a two mile walk from where I am staying. I was glad that I walked because while parking was available, albeit pricey, the area was congested with pedestrians. There was so much going on the market. There were stalls selling produce, fish, spices, cheese, and lots of flowers. I bought 3 heirloom tomatoes, an eggplant, an onion, some cheese, and a loaf of bread for dinner. I also bought some lapsang souchong because it has been awhile since I have had decent lapsang souchong. Everywhere one turns there are streets musicians. There are also shops all along the market that sell Asian goods, t-shirts, and an odd assortment of things.
