A Stop at Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market in Seattle opened in 1907 and is one of the oldest continuously-operated public farmers' markets in the United States.  Overlooking Puget Sound, the market is named for its central street, Pike Place, and is Seattle's most poular tourist destination.

We first peer in a window and see that they are making cheese - it looks good and we make a note to come back for a cheese-sandwich lunch.

Cheese in process

We walk past stalls of fabulous-looking fruit, vegetables, fish, and meat.  Not to mention all the tempting food for consumption on site.


Food for here

Across the street, a fish market is doing a great business, with a large and tempting selection of fresh fish.  And, if you buy it, they will fillet it while you wait.

Walking down to the sound, we find more markets and restaurants, along with a ferris wheel, caroussel, and the ferry terminal.

Returning to the market, we go back to Beecher's Homemade Cheese for cheese sandwiches and more viewing of the the cheese-making process.

That's a grilled cheese sandwich!

Walking back toward our car, we pass florists, french bakeries (Le Panier), and other great shops.

More temptation

We've had a great tour of the areas around Seattle and a small experience of Seattle itself.  What a wonderful place!
