During our stay in Renton we were invited by a relative’s daughter to accompany us to the Pike Street market. I was interested in going because that’s the home of the original Starbucks store. I hope to get a one of my Starbucks drinks there. I waited in the Roadtrek while the ladies went to do a little shopping. Then Susan and I walked down to the Starbucks. Below are some photos and videos of our visit and some of the exotic produce they were able to buy.
Below is a brief video of the pandemonium at the public market in Seattle. The traffic and crowds were unbelievable even on an early Saturday morning.
Below is a short video I took while waiting in our Roadtrek for Marilyn and Susan to return from their shopping foray. Susan, a cousin was a very gracious and capable hostess.
Below is a photograph of the original Starbucks store. As you can tell it is a very popular location for tourists and visitors to the market.
Here is a brief video of my reaction to the line waiting to enter the Starbucks original store.
Below are the fruits of Marilyn and Susan’s shopping at the Pike Street market. On the left is an ordinary red pepper, then three baby bok choy, a head of Romanesco (Italian) cauliflower. Below that are garlic scapes and a the bottom is the peeled shrimp. This and a steak will be our late lunch today.
