A wonderful plus about this tourist attraction is the farm-to-table aspect that puts the freshest of the fresh fruits and vegetable at your fingertips.
Everything looked gorgeous and it was fun to imagine which recipes I could bring to life in my little hotel room kitchen.
When I was wandering around, I noticed people walking through a door and out onto a little deck. It was tiny, but allowed me to take this photo of the ferris wheel on the water.I stopped at world famous Pike Place Fish (where the fish mongers throw whole fish as it is ordered) and bought a pound of salmon. It was fun to hear the staff yell out (and then echo) the fish orders like auctioneers.
I bought salmon (and from another vendor - fresh dill and fingerling potatoes) for our Pike Place-theme dinner that night. It was delicious and it was the first meal after a long winter where I could buy the ingredients at a market in the morning and then cook it for dinner that night. Welcome Spring!
