We spent the day walking around Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. I’m always amazed at the crowds and all the food, flowers and junk local farmers, artists and entrepreneurs can bring to sell. Pike Place Market is the oldest farmers market in the US and was started by local farmers as a way to sell their produce to a more diverse population. In the late 1800’s early 1900’s Seattle had a very large immigrant population and few spoke multiple languages. The market was a way to buy and sell or trade items without having a common language. We ate dinner at the French Crepe Shop (split a salmon crepe) at this window in my photo. Nothing special, I just liked the simplicity of the window and brick.
