{Wordless Wednesday} Pike's Place Market


The weather is finally starting to level off a little here in Seattle. I enjoyed walking through Pike's Place Market last week, soaking in the sunshine. It was a nice day to be out and explore this awesome city. The market is beginning to come alive as spring quickly approaches. It is so much fun to see the extensive variety of wares for sell. There are so many amazing finds here.

If you are ever in Seattle, I highly recommend checking out Pike's Place Market. There are so many different items to goods to discover, both useful and decorative. There are artists and musicians everywhere, beautiful flower arrangements, fresh local produce, delicious food, the first Starbucks and even guys throwing fish. Pike's Place Market is an extraordinary experience.



Now it's time for some Wordless Wednesday Fun!

  1. One of my favorite places in the world. I still wish that lived there. I was stationed there in Bremerton for two years back in the early 90's and have been back twice since. Seattle is wonderful. Hopefully I will be back as my daughter is moving up there in June.

    Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

    1. How exciting! My dad was stationed near Tacoma when he was in the service during Vietnam, he has all kinds of stories to tell about that time. That is awesome you still get to visit and that your daughter is moving here. It really is an amazing place, I'm so glad we found it. Thanks for stopping by and sharing! It is so fun to hear other Seattle stories :) Have a great week!

    1. It's pretty cool. Really busy in the summer months, but that's also when there are the most vendors and performers around. The atmosphere is lots of fun, like a festival everyday. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing! Have a great week!

  14. Guys throwing fish, cool, I just saw that on a TV show. I love the sign with the blue sky behind it. But are you sure you're in Seattle, you did mention sunshine didn't you.

    1. Oh yes, it is one of the highlights of the market. I do love the backdrop of the Puget Sound. And yes, amazingly enough we do get sun...sometimes. I'm so ready for spring, the cold and rain are starting to wear on me. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing! Hope you have a great week :)

  15. That looks like a great place. I saw fish tossing on a tv show, I had no idea it really happened.

    1. The fish throwing absolutely happens, often if people are buying. I haven't seen anyone drop one yet either. It is one of the big features, right in the heart of the market. The fish is extremely fresh too, some caught just that morning. Many local restaurants get their fish from them too, I don't think they throw it to them though, lol. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

  20. I love these historic kinds of markets. I would love to enjoy a coffee here (OK, and some yummy pastries, too).

    1. This is definitely a historical one. Some of the paths used to be used specifically for horses. And there is a legend of a haunted restaurant where the morgue used to be. Still, it is a very happy place, great for coffee!

      Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
