Seattle // Pike Place Market

So a couple of weeks ago, the Mister and I flew* up to Seattle to visit some friends before they popped out a baby.

(*By the way, may I please recommend flying Alaska Air, they are amazing and I can totally say that after having flown 4 flights with the shitastic United just a couple of weeks ago. You can read about why United Airlines is so “Jeff’d Up” in an article about the CEO here.)Seattle Pike Place Market Legal Miss SunshineWe flew up to Seattle early in the morning in order to spend the day exploring Pike Place Market.  Pike Place is one of the country’s oldest continuously operated farmer’s markets. The market is home to several unique stalls and shops including fish and fruit markets, flower stands, antique stores, restaurants, and coffee shops, including the very first storefront of one coffee shop you may have heard of, Starbucks. There is also a 550-pound bronze piggy bank named Rachel and a gum wall. Thanks to the Real World Seattle, when I think of Pike Place, I think of throwing fish, and unfortunately, I have yet to see a flying fish. Oh well, next time.

I bought the vintage book Pigs is Pigs (you may remember the Disney cartoon based upon it in which the guinea pigs keep multiplying), although I wish I had picked up this unhappy hippo, too.Unhappy HippopotamusSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineWe didn’t get a chance to get some coffee at Starbucks because the line was halfway down the block, but luckily I had been before and snapped a few photos.First Starbucks SeattleFirst Starbucks SeattleFirst Starbucks SeattleThere’s a bunch of restaurants in the area and I recommend having lunch in one of them, maybe even one with a fantastic view of flowers, umbrellas, and pigs.Seattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineOh, and don’t forget to visit the Gum Wall or Rachel the Pig.Seattle Pike Place Market Gum Wall - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market Gum Wall - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market Gum Wall - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss SunshineSeattle Pike Place Market - Legal Miss Sunshine
