Last one!


A visit to Seattle would not be complete without a visit to Pike Place Market. We visited the fish market first. It is famous for tossing fish in the air to each other when purchased. We watched them toss a couple. It was cool!

This is a huge market that has about everything. It seems to go on forever. A total of nine acres.

A paste of info:

Pike Place Market is internationally recognized as America's premier farmers' market and is home to more than 200 year-round commercial businesses; 190 craftspeople and approximately 100 farmers who rent table space by the day; 240 street performers and musicians; and more than 300 apartment units, most of which provide housing for low-income elderly people. "The Market," as the locals affectionately say, attracts 10 million visitors a year, making it one of Washington state's most frequently visited destinations.

This is our last day in Seattle. We enjoyed our visit very much. We plan one more stop on the way home. We will visit Port Gamble, WA. More later from Port Gamble.
