Pike Place Market is like a condensed Seattle. There are all kinds of dirty homeless people, beggars and bat@#$% crazy people wandering around outside and near the entrance. One you get inside there are some junk shops and some great merchants. I bought a bunch of stuff at Don and Joe's Meats. They are great. I bought a couple books at one of the used bookstores on a lower level. There is a cute shop for pets, and pet stuff that we bought a few things at. It was fun walking abound, but half of the shops sell junk. We bought some wine at DeLaurenti, which had a good variety. Nice specialty store. I like going to Pike Place when I am in Seattle. I am just becoming less and less fond of going to Seattle because it seems like it is becoming more of a playground for homeless, addicts and vagrants.
