  11. 11. CURRENT MARKETS
  12. 12. Pike Place, one of America's most famous markets, attracts a mix of tourists and locals who come to browse or to simply be part of the action. Since opening in 1907, the market has grown to include numerous businesses, including antiques dealers, flower stands, bakeries, and shops with clothing and handmade art. It's also home to Pike Place Fish Market, famous for its "flying fish”. Pike Place's street performers (violinists, puppeteers, and poets) always put on a show.

  13. 13. The "Original Farmers Market," part of the Los Angeles landscape since 1934, includes more than 100 restaurants, shops, stalls, and food vendors. Along with institutions like Littlejohn's English Toffee House and the 24-hour Du-Par’s, the market features Mexican, Korean, Brazilian, and Mediterranean fare. The aptly named boutique shop, Sticker Planet, has been a market staple since 1991. Other popular stores include Camper footwear, the Farmer's Market Newsstand, and art book purveyor, Taschen.

  15. 15. New Bedford / Brooklawn Park Farmers Market
  16. 16. The market educates the public on the importance of eating healthy locally grown fruits and vegetables. When your local farmer arrives at the Dartmouth Farmers markets he or she has traveled a distance of just a few miles. This is not the same produce that is trucked thousands of miles from California, Seattle, or comes from other countries. When you taste local produce, fruits, and vegetables you can taste the difference and it is healthier for you. Dartmouth Farmers Market
