Pike Place Market

(January 2012)

Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, United States. The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States. It is a place of business for many small farmers, craftspeople and merchants. Named after the central street, Pike Place runs northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street, and remains one of Seattle's most popular tourist destinations.



Sadly 90% of the stalls were closed because we visited during a snowstorm!





Actually what is there to watch huh Ծ_Ծ

Free papers on the counter at the waterfront viewpoint





Fortune-telling machine

Visitors drop quarters into coin boxes, peek through stereoscope-style viewing slots, and are rewarded with views of various giant shoes, including another size 37 brogue worn by Robert Wadlow, the world's tallest man.


Clown shoe is free for viewing.

World's Largest Collection of Giant Shoes ಠ_ಠ I felt cheated.

Giant shoes my foot.

Entrance to another lower ground!






The only underground crafts store that was open!




I love the crafts, but it was too pricey for me! (seriously, I'd rather buy polymer clay and do it myself.)

So many secret passages ⊙_⊙(my sense of direction is ultra terrible I can even get lost inside a campus building wtf)

Details that caught a Genetics major's attention ◠ω◠

That was it.

We also visited the colorful Gum Wall hidden somewhere in the middle of Pike Place market. Which I blogged about earlier HERE.

Near Pike Place Market located the first ever Starbucks store. I blogged about it HERE.




And we aimlessly wandered around...
