Sunday at Pike Place Market

Wednesday, 24 March 2010
Seattle is famous for Pike Place Market which first opened in 1907.  It's a covered market on 1st Avenue just one block from the water.  Here, you can find fresh seafood from Washington's coast, fresh cut flowers, just $5 for a large bouquet and produce that makes supermarket choices look pretty paltry.

Before browsing the stalls and buying a small piece of Native American art, I brunched at Cafe Campagne.  The food is French and I ordered the poached eggs on garlic croutons with bacon and foie gras gravy.  The food was a bit too salty for me but the atmosphere and Mimosa made it worth it.

Nice pictures! I will have to put it on my list of places to visit when I do eventually swing through the area sometime.
