Pike Place Market

When we asked the locals what we should check out, almost unanimously, we heard: “the Pike Place Market!”

Pike Place Market

Picture you’re in a movie, and you’re wandering dreamily down a perfect little street with the quaintest little market. Men in Newsies hats woo you from the sidelines, luring you to try “a bit of nectarine. Best fruit in the whole city. Just picked today!” Mouth-watering aromas float gently down the street, taunting you with their promises of fresh breads, scones, and calzones. Down the street, you hear the local fishmongers all shouting in unison, calling to the people to buy some fish as they throw massive salmon or halibut back and forth to each other.

This is Pike Place Market.
Home to some of the best fish and clam chowder as well as the birthplace of a little coffee shop named Starbucks.

(Note: The first Starbucks doesn’t actually have tables to hang out at, so if you’re planning on working here, you might want to find someplace else.)
