Pike Place Market is Seattle’s original farmers market, but it has so much more than the typical fruit and vegetables. As I walk through the market, I hear men yelling and fish flying through the air. Looking to my right, I see a fish market and a lively bunch of men; hollering out orders and packaging up all types of seafood. A little past the flying fish stand is a delectable cheese booth as well as other artisanal food shops. Besides all the food you could ask for, there is a charming used book store, a few art galleries, a handcrafted jewellery shop, and a fresh flower market. This bustling market has something for everyone and you won’t leave empty-handed.
