Hey Reid - Pike Place Market is something, ain't it - personally I like the piroski place for starters, and just start eating!

Beth - The Zen Foodist

Your photos make Seattle look even more vibrant and enticing than it actually is! And that breadstick looks to-die-for!

Have a nice weekend!


Hi Cindy,

Oh most definitely! =)

Hi Kirk,

Pike Place Market is great! I love it. I was telling my cousin that if he decides to move to Seattle I'll be visiting quite often.

As for the piroshky, hmmm....

Hi Beth,

I love Seattle and would move there if I could find a good paying job there. I love the city and the weather.

BTW...the breadstick was really good! =)


Great looking market. Dungeness crab rolls are another one of those things I've read about but never eaten. Is there mayo underneath that crab?


Hi AG,

The market here is amazing! I could practically live at the market and get everything that I would ever need. Lots of organic fruits and vegetables, fresh seafood and beautiful flowers.

As far as the crab roll is concerned, the crab meat was plain and tasted like the sea. The roll was crusty and there was lots of shredded lettuce and just a touch of mayo there as well. It was really good only because everything was so fresh.


Ahhh, this is what I've been waiting for (well that and the mystery blogger). I'm so envious - I'd love to visit this place. Great pics Reid!


everything looks ono brah!da soup looks especially ono....

Big BoK

Love the market .. but i vaguely remember it.
How was the chowder..??
Cheese sticks.. yums..!


hi reid, i have thoroughly enjoyed this series of posts on seattle - the very best kind of armchair travel reading...delicious, teasing, and utterly evocative...yum!


I love Pike Place Market I venture down there at least once a week. Most of the year, it's my grocery store. And the only good part of summer being over is that I can go down there more often and avoid the crowds!


I love good chowder and crusty bread ^_^


Hey, I've got it all over for piroshki! The Treblinka bakery in the Richmond district. Princess cakes, poppy seed pastries, cherry pastries, 1000 layer cakes. Oh man... Are there any Russians on the east coast ::frowns with concern::


Now that looks like good food! I visited Pike's Market once and promptly fell in love with it too. Great food!

Also, that crab sandwich and chowder looks great too!


Hi Cathy,

I enjoyed Pike Place Market a lot more than the Ferry Building in SF. I guess it's because of the diversity of the offerings and the true open market nature of the place. While the Ferry Building in SF is great, most of the stuff is too high end for most people, which is why you don't normally see crowds there like you see here.

Hi Kelly,

The soup was ono and so was everything else.

Hi Big Bok,

The chowder was great. In fact, after I had finished it, I felt like going back for more. I'm definitely going to come back again sometime soon.

Hi J,

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you've enjoyed the journey thus far. This online report is already longer than my actual vacation.

Hi Shauna,

I love Pike Place Market as well and if I lived in Seattle, I'd definitely visit every couple of days if I could. I love the atmosphere of the place -- it seems so alive and welcoming!

Hi Cindy,

Me too! And this was quite good if you ask me.

Hi Jo,

Piroshky? Who said anything about piroshky? Oh, it was Kirk. Yeah. We'll get to that tomorrow! =)

As for Russians on the East Coast, there are tons of them in New York. I don't know about further south though.


I'm beginning to think that the smaller establishment are the places that I should have been eating at.

The chowder and the dungeness crab roll were awesome!


Yep, I lived in NYC for a short while. Was a maid for a Hassidic family. When you come visit I'll tell you the story of Jo, the FBI, and the really ticked off Hassidic family... I make potato kugel that is awesome. I'll be able to get the proper ingredients for the most incredible cholent back there as well. Foodwise, it's a different world and truth be told, the part of me that isn't sorrowing about leaving is pretty excited about "the next phase".


Hi Jo,

I would definitely be excited to move back East... *sigh*


Heck Reid, for you a move "back east" would land you in California! Want our apartment!?!? ::wink::

On a serious note, we will have a guest house so if you want to have a "think about things" time, you'll have a private spot for it.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
