~PIKES PLACE MARKET~
I visited the famous Pike's Place Market in Seattle a couple weeks ago. Wanted to share some photos from there. The Market overlooks Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington. It opened in 1907, is one of the oldest continually-operated public farmer's markets in the country and it covers nine acres.
This is only a part of the abundance of food at Pike's Place. There was much more than food also ... handicrafts of every sort - handmade clothes, sculptures, paintings, glassware, street performers...too much to see in the time we had there.
This was just as the fishmonger was letting go of a large fish that was to come flying over my head. I was so nervous that I didn't get the photo of it coming my way. A friend was ready to take a photo from the side and just as she snapped a man walked in front of her. You may have seen the flying fish on HGTV. It gave us quite a laugh.
