. . . this book should be read by all who would replace history with progress. It creates a mood of love and appreciation for all that the Market has been to so many people in the past--and should continue to be for the future. Steinbrueck captures and brings to the reader the full flavor of the Market--its like a walk through the wonderful mixing bowl of Seattles world.--Pacific SearchSeattles Pike Place Market, a rambling congeries of stores, shops, and stalls, has a history going back to the turn of the century when farmers from all around brought their produce to sell directly to the public.

. . . The author is an architect and professor of urban planning, and he has been in love with this market since he was a boy. With more than two hundred pen-and-ink sketches and expertly hand-lettered commentaries, he has caught the flavor and movement of a kind of urban life that is rapidly fading from view.
