Seattle's Great Pike Place Market

Can there be a more wonderful, crowded, exciting market in America? Pike Place in Seattle is a United Nations of diversity, with wonderful sights, smells, tastes. A wonderland for the senses. It dwarfs the two great markets I am familiar with--Cleveland's West Side Market, and Cincinnati's Findlay Market. This must be what American cities were like long ago, before the era of supermarkets. We've lost a lot--but fortunately Pike Place is still thriving (as are West Side Market and Findlay Market ).

Flowers (not that expensive) and beauty everywhere!

And wonderful eating, with a view of Puget Sound
