Definitely a must when visiting Seattle. Great variety of culture, food, entertainment and history. Vegetable and fruit stands are displayed beautifully. Merchants were very friendly and at some stands they will hand out free tasty samples. See my reviews for each vendor separately.

If you go to Seattle you have to visit Pike's Place. Dedicate a day and explore the whole place. It was one of the most exciting and interesting places i've been. I wish we hadn't flown in so that i could have bought more of the colorful foods and the flowers they have fresh every day. Can't wait to revisit.

I was SO excited to see this, because, anytime ANYone talks about Seattle, this place is mentioned. Of course we saw the flying fish, and Rachel the Bronze Pig - but honestly, that was the most exciting thing there. The produce looked amazing, and the flowers. Oh my the flowers. Beautiful, and VERY reasonably priced. We got very lost the... More

We liked going there, because there is plenty of food, street signers and bands, crowded lot of people. Kind of place where everyone found something he likes.

We have heard stories about it for years and finally got to go for a visit. Fun to watch the fish throwers. Take the time to walk through all the passage ways and levels of the market. It seems that many folks miss a lot of it by only walking through the street level. Beautiful flowers for sale. We bought... More

My brother took me to the market the first day I was in Seattle. Tons of beautiful flowers, fresh fruit and vegetable and the place to buy your fresh seafood. They don't mention all of the cool shops that have Native American items, rocks, antiques and collectibles. I spent a couple of hours there but I could have spent all... More

My family loved this place - such a plethora of shops and sites. There were street performers, fish throwing (right near the main entrance) and a neat little comic shop inside (not to mention the famous first Starbucks) -- I would definitely recommend an early morning visit - though we visited in the mid afternoon on a weekday and it...

Great place to spend a few hours or all day. Miles of shopping and eating establishments. We had to head down to see the famous fish throwing fish market, a Seattle icon. Lots of breweries to dine at. Great place to shop or people watch. Check out the gum wall in the alley behind.
