Going to the Market

A few weeks ago my mom came and visited and we had the chance to go down to Pike Market.  I love the market.  It's so fresh and lively, full of color and lots of texture. Here are some pictures from our day:


They have so many flowers, it's unreal! It may or may not have taken me 20 minutes to choose the bouquet I wanted (:





Strawberries are my favorite! They were delish


This is the view toward the city. The bird flew in front of the camera right when I snapped it. Too funny!

The famous fish throwing stand:

I couldn't resist posting this adorable picture I took of my sweet mama.  Isn't she adorable? And how pretty are the flowers we picked up?

Another view of the market:
The talented Mandy took this at our recent photo shoot (:

Do you have any favorite places around your city? Do share!

Love and Pike Market,

  3. There's a pretty big market 20 min away from my apartment that has everything you could imagine! My favourite place inside is this bagel shop that sells the BEST bagels I have ever had!

  6. Love the market! David and I went when we were there over Thanksgiving and had a blast. If I remember right, you don't like seafood?? So you probably didn't try the famous blackened salmon sandwich there, but it is GOOOOOOD! What about Beecher's mac and cheese?! Loveeee it!

  16. Look at you, brave girl! Going out with no tights and bare legs... brrrr. ;)

    Pike Market looks amazing. My cousin is going to attend Puget Sound this fall, so I'm hoping I get to visit sometime! Yay... I've never been to Seattle. It looks like you and your mom had a nice time at the market, and those flowers are gorgeous. I would love to see them throw fish there... have you seem them in action?!

    As for favorite places around Denver.... I think I'll have to choose this area down by the REI in town, because it has an amazing view of the city skyline. Not to mention tons of parks surround the area, and the Cherry Creek and Platte River come together in this spot right at Confluence Park. There's always a lot of people, families, and dogs out in the water on nice days. It's a pretty great spot if you ask me! (:

  22. What beautiful photos you captured! I live in Oregon, so my favorite place around here (besides home) would be the coast! I've got to get up there to see more of Seattle one of these days. I'm embarrassed to say that I've lived in OR all my life and have NEVER been to Pike Market.

  27. Your mama looks 25!!
    We went to Seattle in 2001 and loved it! The flowers are so overwhelming and I love that they come in the brown paper wrapping. There's just something special about it. Not to mention the price! You'd pay 3x as much for that many flowers in an arrangement.

  41. you are so adorably precious missy! I love this view of Seattle you gave us. I often think of it as sad, lonely, cold and rainy. But it doesn't seem that way at all in your pictures. ha ha. I don't know. I'm a California girl. living in Seattle seems like quite a grand stretch.
