Pike Place Market

Sorry for slow updates. My in-laws are visiting and we have been busy doing touristy things! Here are some pictures from Pike Place Market.

Piroshky-Piroshky, probably made famous by Anthony Bourdain's visit, is one of the most popular vendors here. They make a really yummy cheese and green onion piroshky.

At Beecher's you can sit on these cute milk-jug stools and watch them make fresh artisan cheese.

HUGE Nutella jars at DeLaurenti Specialty Food & Wine, one of my favorite stores here. They have great cannoli.

Pike Place Market has a great selection of fresh fish.

And flowers. Each bouquet is usually $5 or $10. A lot of bang for your buck.

Finally, the original Starbucks founded in 1971. A pop quiz: do you guys know where the name Starbucks comes from?


  1. I've only been to Seattle once, but when I make it back, I am definitely going to the Pike Place Market, even if it is touristy. It looks amazing.

  2. I love markets, these look fantastic. Those crabs look tasty! Thanks for visiting my blog.
    Oh, and the only Starbuck I can think of is from Battlestar Galactica :)

  3. I love markets too. Those milk stools are great. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

  6. Love the markets and strolling down the alleys, finding little hole in the wall restaurants, enjoying the views. Seattle is a fun place to visit.

  7. Shaz,

    Sorry for my late reply. I was in Portland for a while. Starbucks is named after one of the characters in Moby-Dick by Herman Melville.

  8. I love your view of seattle and the pike place market. it's a 3 hr drive from me, in Vancouver BC but somehow it looks so much more fun through your camera lens than when i visit in person. lol
