Perched on the edge of a steep hill overlooking Elliot Bay, Pike Place Market in Seattle cascades down over several levels from the main level toward the bay. It is one of the oldest continuously operating farmers' markets in the US. And it is probably the most interesting. The vibrant city of Seattle is one of our favorites. The people, the music, the theater. The hills. The Market. The food. Outdoor cafes on the pier. Pioneer Square. Ferry trips across the sound. But the market is one of the truly special things about this intriguing city.
