Pikes Place Market, Seattle, Washington

Downtown Seattle Skyline from Ferry

Pikes Place Market

Crowded Marketplace

Fresh Shucked Oysters

On the second day day of our Northwest road trip, we arrived in the Poulsbo area just outside of Seattle Washington. My cousin's just finished building there house and invited us to stay a few days. Waking up the next morning we took the local ferry into downtown Seattle to explore the food scene and local sites. Of course the first stop had to be Pikes Place Market which is a huge semi permanent farmers market with lots of stalls featuring seasonal produce, cut flowers and of course amazing seafood. The first stop for us was one or two dozen fresh oysters and a lemon to squeeze on top. I bought one dozen Kumamoto oysters, small, crisp and flavorful which were consumed in a matter of minutes on the sidewalk before gawking tourists. After exploring the whole market we bought a few dozen large Pacific oysters to take back and barbecue latter at the house.
