Seattle - Pike's Market

We spent one day at Pike's Market, an amazing marketplace and the site of the very first Starbuck's. :) It was busy and fragrant and colorful, full of food and people and creativity. It was right on the riverfront and the weather was perfect! I might add that we walked down a steep hill to get there and going up said hill on the return, not so much fun, but well-worth it!

Getting a new hair apparatus.

All the big girls got one and we needed only one demonstration for our "resident beauty consultant" (pictured) to have it figured out for future use! :)

Lunch at Beecher's ... handmade cheese ... and homemade onion soup, and homemade grilled cheese sandwiches on homemade bread. SO DELICIOUS!

And, for entertainment, you could watch the whole cheese making process while you ate.


Isn't that just gorgeous? Doesn't it make you hungry? Me, too!
I'm thinking if we lived here, I would be a regular at this market!

'Nuff said.

I seriously could have eaten my weight in smoked salmon (which this is not a picture of) and the girls loved it, too. Almost shipped a ton home, but alas it wouldn't be so yummy once we got home to it.

Sweet peas.

We did buy our weight in fruit at this place ... cheeries (that were gone almost before we got up the hill), the juiciest peaches, nectarines, raspberries, and a very strange melon that was so yummy! Needless to say, over the next couple days, none of the fruit went to waste! :)
