"Pike Street - Tourist and Local Haven"
You're looking for the famous Pike Street Market? As logic would dictate, travel down Pike Street until you can go no farther and there it is! Parking is always a challenge here but once you're parked, you can rub elbows with tourists and locals alike. There is incredible dining, bars, and little off-the-beaten-path kinds of places here even though it's a very well-worn path. There are great bargains to be had at the market from fresh fish, fruits and veggies to hats, scarves, clothing, jewelry and more! At the very end of Pike Street below the neon glow of the sign on the street below stands a large brass pig. I always thought it was amusing considering he's outside the most famous fish market in the world! Other than the Market, Pike Street is home to many local businesses and apartment complexes alike, which is part of the contribution to the deficit of available parking.
