While I know it's a swarm of tourists and locals during the summer, I can never get enough of Pike Place Market. Rain or shine, I love wandering through its maze-like corridors and constantly getting lost. Don't ask me where anything is, I STILL couldn't tell you, because I still get totally turned around trying to find tried-and-true places.

I love the Chinese bakery, Mee Sum Pastry, which is one of the outside vendors along the Triangle Building in Pike Place Market. It's quick, inexpensive, and you can eat while walking, which was what I had to do, getting from one place to another. I love the curry beef buns -- like a Hot Pocket, but a million times better. Another easy eat-and-run food is empanadas, which the little shop, La Mexicana, sells, over in the Soames-Dunn building, which I use the hanging chili and garlic garlands as a visual reference, even though they're sold at a shop next door. See, that's the way I navigate the market, by the farmer stalls and what they typically sell!
