Pike Place Market
Seattle, Washington

Another view of the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle.
The Pike Place Market opened in 1907 and now is Seattle's Number one tourast draw. In the summer, it is estimated that 40,000 visitors come by every Saturday. During the winter, it is less crowded, but still busy. The market is lined by fruit stands, florists, craft displays, street performers, and of course the fish markets, the one here being the main attraction, which opened in 1965.

There are quite a few people working the stand on a daily basis. The man on the far left is handing out samples of the smoked fish. In the forground left is the man that normally interacts with the croud and catches fish that are thrown. Behind the counter are two men packing up fish to get shipped.

Other pictures from the market are here.
