No trip to Seattle wouldn’t be complete without visiting the “oldest continually working farmer’s market in the US.” Nine acres of everything fresh – produce, fruits, flowers, seafood and coffee, just to name some things that can be found at this place. First opened more than a hundred years ago, one can easily spend hours walking around and getting lost in this beautiful market maze.
Rachel the Pig and her 550-lb bronzed body will welcome you right under the Public Market Center sign. Just behind her, the guys at the Pike Place Fish stand will give you the most entertaining fish-buying experience you’ll ever have. A short walk will lead to the very first Starbucks store in the whole world. Going a little underground to the alley will lead you to a brick wall covered in 50 feet of used chewing gum. Can you say ewwww?
There were so much to see in this area, and so many places to eat as well. It was a cold January morning (by California girl standards) and we mostly spent our time hiding from Seattle water breeze. Little did we know we already spent hours of walking around, and still haven’t gone into all the little stores and corners of this place.
Wishing everyone a great day! Here’s a cupful of coffee toast for warmer winter day!
