pike place market – seattle, wa

I have been MIA for the past few days because we have been exploring in Seattle, Wa!!

We made the trip out west on Saturday and have been loving every minute so far.  After checking in to our hotel, the first spot we hit was Pike Place Market!

Pike Place is a farmer’s market that is open ever day to the public.  The market was opened in 1907, after citizens were fed up with the prices of produce.  The public market was a way to let local farmer’s sell their produce to the public at normal prices.  Now, it is filled with over 200 businesses that sell everything from produce to fish to flowers to pasta to chocolate to honey to lavender.  It is filled with lots of great stuff!

We spent the morning walking around and picking up some goodies to take home.

Highlights of the Market

Gorgeous bunches of flowers for only $5 and $10!!

Lots of produce and goodies

Local jam

Local dried cherries

Homemade pasta!

Dried fruit & nuts

We also came across the famous Pike Place Pig.

And, the first Starbucks, which was packed!!

I absolutely loved Pike Place Market and we’ve been taking morning walks through there with our coffee everyday.  I love vacation!

This doesn’t even begin to cover our whole first day here in Seattle, but it’s time for more exploring!  I’ll be back with many more recaps. 🙂
