Fruit And Veggie Love At Seattle's Pike Place Market

One of my favorite places in Seattle is The Pike Place Market. It's very well known as a tourist attraction here in the city and the crowds do get heavy with visitors in the summer time. Over ten million visitors pass through here a year. I was here last Tuesday and it wasn't crowded at all. It was really lovely to stroll down through the main arcade and look at all the produce that was for sale.

The colors are so beautiful that I just had to start snapping pictures! I love buying vegetables here because I am helping to support all the farmers who come here from all over Washington State to sell their produce. The quality is always excellent, too. Did you know that at one time the Market was going to be bulldozed and a parking lot put in it's place? Fortunately, the citizens of Seattle rallied together to save it and give it historical preservation status, insuring that it will be protected and preserved for future generations to enjoy. I love Pike Place Market and all it has to offer. Some people say it's the heart of Seattle. I agree.
