December is almost here and the Pike Place Market has started to put up the usual Christmas trees and garlands. If you’re out for dinner in the area, it’s a fun time to walk through the market at night during this time of the year to look at all of the lights.
The Market uses a wonderfully restored International truck (aka IHC, or International Harvester Co.) to bring in the Christmas trees. I’m not an expert, but this particular model was probably made during the mid 1920’s.
Picking up some ingredients for tonight’s roast and desert from Le Panier…
About mid November, the numerous flower stalls begin to offer Christmas wreaths in all varieties. I picked out one from the third picture below.
Now I’m off to go to do some Christmas shopping! :)
