This fun area stretches beyond "Pike Place Market" from First Avenue and Pike Street, along Pike Place— encompassing all the little specialty shops, restaurants, arts & crafts vendors, street performers and musicians — between Union and Virginia Streets to Western Avenue.



Post Alley
— Edible Art Peppers

Check out Choice Produce & Pepper, located on the corner of Post Alley and Pike Place — you can't miss it...just look for the colorful "hanging peppers" out
front.

Colorful Edible Art Pieces at Choice, Post Alley and Pike Place,  Seattle, Washington

These unique "edible works of art " are all handmade by the owners and his family — the peppers make a great gift, especially if you're looking for something special from Seattle. FYI...the pieces last five years as a decoration and two years as a spice.

Victor Steinbrueck Park, near Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington

Victor Steinbrueck Park
Victor Steinbrueck Park is located at the northern end of Pike Place Market — at the end of Virginia St. on Western Avenue. It's a short easy walk from the market.

Victor Steinbrueck Park, near Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington

The small grassy park is named after Steinbrueck — an architect, author, and artist...and Seattle's best-known advocate of historic preservation. He was best known for his design of the Space Needle in 1960. After his death in 1985, Pike Place Park was named Victor Steinbrueck Park in honor of his memory.

During the spring and summer, it's a fun place to stroll, enjoy a picnic lunch, and people-watch, after visiting Pike Place Market
— it draws an interesting mix of people.

The park offers water (Elliott Bay) and mountain (Olympic Mountains) views. If you hear the sound of traffic, that's because the park also overlooks the Alaskan Way Viaduct — an elevated section of Washington State Route 99 that runs along the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle's Industrial District and downtown. It reminded us a little of the old Embarcadero Freeway (overlooking San Francisco Bay), prior to the Loma Prieta Earthquake.
