Yesterday at the Pike Place Market Street Festival, the dogs were dressed in their very best or as the one above, completely undressed. The festival is always for a good cause, to help the Pike Place Market Foundation. With the picture-perfect weather, the crowds were pretty big, so we hope the foundation was able to raise some funds to continue their work at the market.
One of the big vendor hits was the portable wood-fired pizza oven from Veraci Pizza. The smell of burning wood, combined with melting mozzarella, was a big crowd pleaser. According to their website, “we will be featuring our delicious wood-fired pizza year ’round at the Fremont outdoor Market & Ballard Farmer’s Market on Sundays. In spring & summer, nice we will be returning to the Phinney Ridge Market, Bellevue Market & Mercer Island Farmer’s Market. “.
I also had a friendly conversation with Jim Nilsen. a local photographer based out of Edmonds, WA. As I was walking by his booth, out of the corner of my eye, I saw some vibrant colors and shapes that I thought were paintings at first. On closer inspection, I realized they were the photographs of Jim. His images are super sharp, super bright and take you to the rolling hills of Tuscany or the beautiful canals of Venice. We had a nice conversation and he’s the kind of photographer you want to be right next to while you are travelling to Italy. He had just spent a month traveling throught the different regions of Northern Italy. I encourage you to check out his website, his work is inspiring.
Here area few more images for you to check out from the day at the market.
