Pike Market Place, Seattle, WA

I really couldn't capture the magnificence that was our stay in Seattle in just one post, so over a series of posts, a LAVBM episode and photos on my flickr page, I hope that i begin to open your appetite to a new image of Seattle. Beneath the dark clouds, gloomy skies and rain you'll find a city that shows its color and vibrance through its culinary treasures right at the heart of the city: The Pike Market Place.

At the market, you can find all sorts of produce, spices, flowers and food from around the world. One of the biggest tourist attractions is the fish market, where the staff throw huge fish around and tourists gather around and applaud. You can find a delicacy in every corner of the favorite was the little Chinese pastry shop selling freshly made Bao, and Beecher's handmade cheeses where you can sample their famous macaroni and cheese that left me craving for more!!!

The Pike Market place closes in the early evening leaving the stalls and cobblestone streets abandoned until the next morning. But, some restaurants take the spotlight on the outskirts of the market featuring many of the fresh ingredients sold earlier in the market.

Anthony Rapp and Michael McElroy enjoyed dinner at Cafe Campagne, Michael's highschool friend's French restaurant near the market.
Lexi Lawson, Justin Johnston, Adam Pascal and I watched the sunset just before dinner at
Brasa, from a roof top terrace overlooking the Pike Street Market.

  1. Hi Andy!
    I'm looking forward to your report on Seattle -I'm thrilled that you guys had a great time here. But I'm confused, trying to place that deck above the Market - was it a public or private space?
