This market is a really interesting idea, especially since visitors in resort areas sometimes end up eating only what's served, and don't visit local markets. In Hawaii, where there are so many different fruits we don't see in the rest of the U.S., that's especially a shame!
Hi there Pheymont. It was really interesting and different. I actually work with someone here in CO who has an aunt that works at the hotel next door to the Hyatt. While visiting with her, she told us she usually grabs some fresh fruit and veggies every week. She says it is much better than at the store. Look forward to going the next time we are in the area. Thanks for your comment.
I love the sights, the sounds, the colours and - yes - the smells of a market. Finding a new fruit or vegetable is amazing. Usually in a country I'm visiting. I found your husbands likings so funny. I read it to my wife but I couldn't finish a sentence for laughing ! Maybe he's a Monty Python fan ?
Great visit to a great market! I try to get to the Pike's Place market almost every time I visit Seattle. You are right, Samantha, there's nothing magical about the fish being thrown around. Everytime someone buys a salmon, it sails from one employee to another to another, and they are remarkably good at it! So if you want to see the action, buy yourself one of these great fish. This is actually a very well known feature of the market and the salmon can be frozen and shipped most anywhere in...
Thanks for the comments guys. Garry, glad you and your wife liked my post. Yes, he is a Monty Python fan and says - One thin wafter, lol. Thanks for the video drfumblefinger. Thanks again for the comments.
I also visited Viktualienmarkt for produce shopping as an alternative to our local village market. A photo below. I remember a number of statues and fountains in the Viktualienmarkt and I snapped a photo of my favorite Ida Schumacher with a broom and pail in her hand. I couldn't locate my photo, but I attached a royalty free photo.
