Last year’s International Food Bloggers Conference was held in Portland, Oregon. It wasn’t part of my planned trip to the U.S. so I didn’t go. This year though, I finally did. I took the train to Seattle, Washington and stayed in the foodie capital for 3 days.
The following photos were actually taken a year ago during a road trip to Seattle. They are still valid, I guess. Pictures don’t have expiration dates.
On the way to the famous Pike Place Market.
The towering billboard.
Fresh coho (silver) salmon for $6.99/lb. I wonder if the price has increased since then?
Wild jumbo white shrimp for $21.99/lb. Tempting!
“I’m a big ass rock fish!” The sign says. $5.99/lb. I’ll buy that!
Jumbo cold water lobster tails for $35.99/lb. Seattle water has lots of jumbo species.
She means business.
Crimini mushrooms for $3.99/lb. How are they different from button mushrooms?
Fruit tasting is free.
A happy vendor makes a happy customer.
“We pack seafood for the airplane!” They cater for tourists, no doubt about that.
For a while there I thought I was in Italy.
The one next to the world’s tallest man is mine. =)
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Pike Place Market is the best attraction in Seattle, Washington. It is a feast for all the senses!
