Seattle: Pike Place Market

No trip to Seattle is complete with a walk-through of Pike Place Market. Every time I’ve been to Seattle, I do it. Generally, it’s during the height of tourist season. Back in June 2016, we felt like sardines shuffling through the throngs of people.

But in January on a Sunday morning? I felt like I had the place to myself.

Each morning before I began my work conference in Seattle, I would walk down from my hotel to the market.

In the fog…

And blue skies too…

As I was walking through, a woman told the fishmonger how she wanted to catch a fish! So she tried…and missed!

But the second time was a success!

Being from the Midwest, I enjoyed seeing (and eating!) all of the fresh seafood.

Even though the market closes up in the evenings, it is worth a walk to see the neon sign all lit up. Yes, it’s touristy, but you can’t miss this classic Seattle experience.
