Immediately after dropping my luggage off at the Mayflower Park Hotel (and inhaling the complimentary chocolate covered cherries), I sprinted the four blocks to one of the countries most famous, markets, Pike Place Fish Market.
I had a preconceived vision of Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle. It included throwing fish, catching fish and eating fish. And it was all that.
2. Rocker T-Shirts
An amazing artist uses bleach and guitars to make the coolest rocker t-shirts. I know. Amazing. It was one of the few souvenirs that I have ever wanted…anywhere.
4. Colorful Tulips
Alm Hill Gardens was selling beautiful bouquets of tulips at Pike Place Fish Market. They are a sustainable farm that produces berries, lettuces and vegetables too. But, who could get past the flowers?
5. Pure Honey
As soon as I tasted the raw blackberry honey, I was picturing it in a cup of warm tea by a cozy fire. I thought about double dipping to make sure the second lick would be as good as the first. I'm sure I wouldn't have been the only one.
8. Fire Lighters
Strike the match against the stone and you have instant fire. Genius. Or maybe just another Pike Place Fish Market souvenir.
Have you been to Pike Place Fish Market? Which one of these souvenir would you most likely take home?
