One of the oldest, if not THE OLDEST, continuously operating public markets in the country, Pike Place is a jumble of fish, produce and flower stalls not to mention craft shops within walking distance to the waterfront. People love to see the fishmongers "throwing" the fish from man to man and the crowd is never disappointed when this show is put on. There are also restaurants if you feel like hanging around for a little while. Pike Place reminds me somewhat of Reading Terminal in Philadelphia, although the setting is quite different! One thing that Pike Place does have is (Rachel?) the life-size brass pig and she alone is worth the treck down to Pike Place. Still, Pike Place is a great sight and you shouldn't miss it. I can't believe I didn't get a postcard of Pike Place Market. If any one has an extra and would like to send me one, I'd greatly appreciate it!!
