As you can tell I was very impressed by Pike Place Market! Due to the time zone difference and having a child who is awake each by 6:30 am we were at the market early. Getting there is easy we took the commuter train to University station and walked downhill the couple of blocks.
The market is amazing! The fresh flowers, the pastries, the fresh seafood and artisan goods. We spent a good part of the morning poking around. The original Starbucks is here, go early to avoid the line. Three Girls Bakery was perfect for a snack and a baguette for later. We even stumbled on a Penzey’s Spice store!
We watched them throw fish….
The fresh flowers were amazing!
And we gave some coins to Rachel the pig.
