The iconic Pike Place Market sign on a gloomy day. Red Neon block letters that say “Public Market Center” and there’s a circular white clock with red hands and numbers.

One of the upsides of January in Seattle is that you can go to Pike Place Market for a nice wander-and-browse without getting crushed to death by tourists.

Tourists are welcome here, but once in a while it’s nice to have the ‘hood to ourselves. 🙂

Pro tip for visitors: It’s Pike place, not Pike’s place. And if you really want to blend, leave your umbrella at home.
