Pike Place Market, founded in 1907, is the earliest farmer's market in the United States, and now ranks first in Seattle Top 50. There are many stalls in the market, besides seafood, there are also fruits, flowers and restaurants. If you live in an apartment, it must be excellent to buy seafood here and cook it by yourself. On the ground floor of the market, there are many small shops. "Sleepless In Seattle", when Tom Hanks took his son to the market to buy vegetables, he walked down this road. Seeing this classic parent, the first photo is from the same angle, with wood. Rachel, a copper piglet at the entrance of the market. It's the mascot of Parker's market. It's also a money jar. People who come to the market like to put their change into the piglet and touch its nose to bring good luck to themselves. Of course, the program you must watch here is the famous fish throwing performance. If you see a lot of people gathering around, it's next to the piglet. There's a fish throwing billboard on the top of the shop. Everyone greets customers warmly like old friends. When someone buys fish, the handsome man outside the counter throws the slippery fish high, and the people inside the counter catch the fish steadily, and then quickly. The whole process was completed as soon as the scales were packed and charged. And when throwing fish, all the fishmongers sang aloud the chant "We can fly it!". The whole market is a tossed fish, full of laughter and joy, not at all like work, but simply play, and customers are obviously infected by their happiness.
Parker Market is the most representative place in Seattle. Every visitor who comes to Seattle will come to Parker Market. I come here many times. In winter, more people come here on weekends and less people on weekends. This time, in Seattle Garden in July and August, so many people come to Parker every day. There are mainly local specialties here. Usually, these commodities are used and eaten. Businessmen make their own products or produce them on their own farms, so the price is usually a little higher than that of supermarkets. But the food here is very fresh. This year, it has been expanded. The market of Parker has become bigger and there are more goods. There are many attractions and good restaurants around, for example, the first Starbucks is here, and so on. Be sure to come.
It can be said that Seattle is the most famous tourist attraction, which means that there are still a lot of people. Starbucks First Store queued outside the door, so it didn't get in to make a scene. Chewing gum wall, you can smell very sweet gum from a distance, not afraid to find it. In one of the fish stalls, I bought four palm-sized shrimps for $30 and went back to cook them. It was very fresh and a special experience.
To Seattle, we must go to the famous American agricultural market with a long history - Park Market: there are all kinds of fresh vegetables and fruits, dried fruits and seafood: king crabs sell on legs; there are many handicraft products; various products of lavender, flowers, dried flowers; the world's first Starbucks shop, delicious Piroshky Piroshky bakery, chewing gum wall are all here.
Seattle is best known except for the Starbucks Zuye Shop, which was built in 1907. Its predecessor was actually a rural market. It was attracted by flying fish performances. In fact, nowadays, the flying fish show is only for occasional reasons. It is estimated that the price is too expensive, the number of people who buy it is too small, but the tourists buy it but have nowhere to cook, so just look, have a look. There are also beautiful flowers and fresh fruits, and a variety of special jams and honey are very rich.
I really like the Parker market. The whole market is very clean and tidy. It's totally unlike the domestic market which is dirty and messy. Shoppers will put their goods in a neat way. Seafood stalls can see famous fish throwing performances whenever someone buys fish. The aunts who buy flowers are all holding a handful of flowers on the spot. They are very beautiful!

The first hygienic consideration is to put down in front of the gum wall with fresh taste and the hydrophilic wharf with the combination of emerging arts to watch the sea and sky. Most of the vendors can eat, drink and sweep merchandise happily even in cloudy and rainy days. Lucky children can encounter the lost fish show or go shopping in the market to buy companions, taste seafood and drink a famous bowl of Qiaodalu soup.
