The Food Theme Continues

Visitors to Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA will recognize Rachel, the market's unofficial mascot.

The market is famous for the vendors who fling fish to each other.
Much more exciting than pizza dough!

It has amazing local, seasonal produce...

including mushrooms...

and flowers...

and wreaths of peppers.

There is a vast selection of seafood (yum!)

Pretty pomegranates...

...and live crabs!

Apparently Rachel the Pig left some hoof prints as she trotted about the market! 

Close to the market...Beecher's Handmade Cheese.
A must stop in my book!

Also nearby, is the 100 year old Three Girls Bakery!
What a pleasant way to spend the morning.

You have done a great job showing off the market!! It is by far one of my favorite places to go in Seattle. We often walk on the Bainbridge Ferry and then walk up to the market. We recently had a radio talk program that discussed great eating places in the market. I made some notes!

Even though I'm still stuffed from leftovers, the market looks like quite a treat! I especially love the colours in the pepper wreath.
