    This long-standing public market has everything. I've heard that the fish-throwing spectacle in the seafood market can be exciting, but ran out of time to see it.

    Definitely take the 'Locks Tour' -- great views of the city and sound. And, of course, you should 'do' the Public Market.
    All the modes of water travel.

    The old farmer's market with modern twist. You can still buy fresh vegatables and salmon here, but also jewelry, t-shirts, and all kinds of knick-kancks for somewhat exaggerated prices.

    A small bookstore selling a large selection of books from small presses. An excellent place to find those hard to find books on art or politics.

    Pike Street Market is a great place to see all the local fish, flowers, fruits and nuts.....
    The fish get thrown around by the packers for entertainment.
