Pike Street Public Market - Seattle

The other day, we had to go to downtown Seattle to take care of some business. We have been trying to get in the habit of taking a daily walk to help us in our efforts to maintain health and lose weight. So we took advantage of the few hours without rain and walked around downtown.

We didn't know where we were going, we just started walking and we came upon the Pike Street Public Market. We have lived in this area for two years now and had driven by it before, but we had never stopped to check it out. What an amazing place!

Fresh seafood and cut tulips were everywhere. All of the seafood there makes the seafood in the meat department of your local grocery store look sick. My wife doesn't even like fish, but she had to admit that the experience made her want to learn how to cook fish. The sights, sounds and smells were amazing.

About once a month, we have to make a trip to downtown Seattle. We are planning on making our walk to Pike Street Public Market a regular event. My wife is off to the library today to pick up some seafood cookbooks to be prepared for our next trip.
