Pike Place Market is a mecca of fresh fish, crab, flowers, cheese and crafty goodness. This indoor and outdoor farmers market is backed by the beautiful view of the pacific ocean. Lucky Seattle!
With an abundance of fresh fish and seafood available, some vendors put on a show for the buyer! At the Pike Place Fish Market, the fishmongers throw the fish to be wrapped as customers order. It’s really fun to see giant salmon being tossed in the air!
There are lots of cafes, shops and restaurants outside and inside of the market. One of my favourite shops was… Beecher’s Cheese!!!
Two words. Cheese curds. Amazing, amazing cheese curds. I hear that they also sell delicious macaroni and cheese, as well as grilled cheese sandwiches. I couldn’t tell you, I was busy devouring cheese curds. Mmmm. Of course, they also make a large variety of equally delicious cheeses.
They have big glass windows where you can see them making the cheese curds. It’s pretty cool. They also make their own crackers!
Of course, you can find beautiful colourful flowers, fresh fruit, local produce and a variety of handmade hats, jewelry and other crafty goods. I bought a 1940s style knitted hat.
