PIKE PLACE MARKET

Seattle, Washington State, U.S.A.

“Seattle is for people who love culture, but refuse to sacrifice their wild nature to attain it.”

Fish Market

How fresh is this?

The Pike Place Market located on the waterfront of Elliott Bay, opened in 1907 and is one of the oldest continuously operated markets in the U.S.A.

Cracked crab and chilli sauce – a Singaporean delicacy

The fish market in particular was really alive with vendors calling to each other and throwing these massive fish through the air to each other without dropping one.

The quality of the seafood was top notch, so fresh and surprisingly well priced for fresh seafood.

Flower Market

The prices being charged for the cut flower were comparable with what we would pay at markets in Australia.

The Pike market which is open 7 days a week has over 10 million visitors annually.

The quality of the hotels and restaurants around the market are of high quality. My wife and I had lunch across the road from the main market and found the quality good and the price was within the reach of most people.

If I was contemplating settling in the US, Seattle would certainly be on my short list.

Hang loose and enjoy life.
