If you are visiting Seattle, Pike's Place Market is a MUST SEE attraction. Located downtown, north of Pioneer Square, it’s just off of the water. Besides all of the fresh vegetables, fresh fish, fresh fruit, fresh flowers, spices, unique artisan crafts, and restaurants on the upper level, Pike’s Place offers many other stores on the floors beneath, magic, music and menagerie. One can get everything they need here to cook their own gourmet meal, decorate, and prep for a romantic atmosphere.
Home of the Throwing fish, the major fresh fish stand puts on a show for hoards of people every minute of every day, five pound pacific salmons fly across the counter; it’s a must admire even if your not buying any fish.
Flowers are, besides everything else, one of my favorite purchases. Massive bouquets of flowers are relatively cheap and arrangements come in all different varieties, from simple to extreme and complicated.
Across the street from the Market building, lie many other unique and worthwhile stands, restaurants, and curios. Grab a macchiato at the very first Starbucks, a fresh glass of lemonade, a 4 inch diameter pumpkin cookie, spiced balsamic vinegar, and a hotdog with cream cheese. Make a day of this experience. If you’re not using public transportation, park behind the market on Western Avenue and use the many elevators and stairs to get up to the top. Beware, the market starts to shut down at 5pm, so go early… 9ish or so, to spend the day.
