Pike Place Market @ Seattle, Washington

Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, United States. The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States. It is a place of business for many small farmers, craftspeople and merchants. The market remains one of Seattle's most popular tourist destinations. There are a variety of unique shops such as antique dealers, comic book and collectible shops and small family-owned restaurants. Pike Place Market is home to nearly 500 residents who live in 8 different buildings throughout the Market. Most of these buildings have been low income housing in the past; however, some of them no longer are, such as the Livingston Baker apartments.
