Sights and Smells of Pike Place Market

Trust Mridula to always wake me up from my slumber. :-)

Things have been hectic lately...or so is my excuse for not posting. In any case, let me finish up my Seattle account with a write-up on Pike Place market. On our last day in Seattle we visited this Farmer's market located in downtown Seattle. Our friends told us we could spend hours there, so unique is it. It has been open for almost 100 years now and is an open public market where local vendors sell their wares.

There is food and flowers, knicks and knacks, clothes, spices and jams, paintings and jewelry - you think about it and its there.

From these red-hot chilli peppers,


To the coffee shops (BTW Seattle is known as the coffee capital of US, being home to Starbucks)


To colorful flowers


To equally wonderful paintings


There was a lot to look at and explore at the Pike Place Market. We spent a good 3-4 hours here just looking around.

And as luck would have it we even ran into one of our college friends whom we met after almost 7 years. A perfect end to a wonderful trip to Seattle.

Yeah Mridula. Some of the interior of the market reminded me of Pallika Bazaar. Haven't been to that place for years now...wonder how much it has changed now
