Wednesdays at the Pike Place Market in January, February, and March are often quiet, relatively speaking, compared to the busier months of the year. But there are still visitors from near and far, buskers singing or playing instruments, lots of flower vendors, especially this time of year, and many craftspeople as well.
Today a jack hammer interrupted our relative quiet often. Did you know that the market is expanding? It will be much bigger very soon. More restaurants and shops, more crafts spaces, more apartments, more parking, and a beautiful deck cascading down to Seattle’s waterfront. Official opening is in June, but rumor has it that it will be opening much sooner, maybe April. We can’t wait! Come see what’s going on!
Today I cut Half Square Triangles for a baby quilt as I was “minding the store” for my husband John (a blacksmith at the market) and me. People love to talk and ask questions when I am doing something like that.
By the time I was packing our “stuff” up to take to our storage lockers, it was sunshine and blue sky outside. What a great surprise! And it’s about time!
