Welcome to Seattle: First Stop Pike Place Market

The eagle has landed!! I arrived in Seattle last week and hit the ground running trying to get acclimated to the city. One of our first stops was Pike Place Market, and let me just say it didn't disappoint! Yes, it's super crowded and full of tourists, but if you can get past that the market is full of fresh seafood, amazing flowers, and other great deals on handmade finds and foods.

The highlight of my Pike Place Market visit was discovering the smoked garlic pepper salmon. Can I just take a moment to appreciate the awesomeness of that food! Ooh wee... and it wasn't cheap. 1lb cost me about $30, but it was worth every cent.

Another thing that impressed me? The endless supply of fresh flowers!!! This really did blow me away and put every Chicago florist to shame. The quality of flowers, vibrancy of the colors, variety, and price were so amazeballs. Seriously... there is never a need to look elsewhere. I was in heaven. Once we move into our new place I could totally see myself making a trip to the market at least twice a month to snag fresh flowers.

Bonus: Unlike Chicago, Seattle still allows free street parking on Sunday and holidays. If you want to save coins on parking, feel free to hit up Pike Place Market on a Sunday and snag a free spot on the street.
