Pike Place Market: Part 1

A staple of the Seattle scene, Pike Place Market is where you go to rub shoulders with locals and tourists looking to pick up fresh produce, flowers, crafts, seafood, and a little bit of everything in between. This was by far the busiest location we visited on our road trip of the Northwest, but it was also one of the most visually stimulating. 

Everywhere we looked there was something go on. Almost immediately after entering the market, Mike and I each bought a bag of dried apple slices which really hit the spot. From there we wandered down the main drag stopping to look at pictures, stopping to take pictures, and generally just get lost in the energy of the market. Closer to the waterfront there were more characters to see and cool shops to explore. It was a great way to spend the afternoon, and we had a lot of fun winging it.

Starbucks #1 at Pike Place Market - this is where it all began.
