Pike's Market

Visit the Market in the morning when vendors are setting up, and the place is fresh and full of energy. By afternoons the the tourists can crowd the market.

The Market is 100 years old and has become a famous popular destination.. Fish, fruit, flowers, produce, and street vendors thrive here. Everyone complains about the crowds and just keeps coming back. Starbucks began here. Check out the few souvenir shops and the overpriced junk, and just go with it.
