Wow,what a difference a warm weekend day in August makes during a major event.The place has remained pretty unchanged,thank goodness,and it is a lot of fun to come here. I bought some smoked salmon,some crusty fresh bread,some local cheese made... More

Wow, what a place first time here and I loved it. So many things to see. The floral sections are beautiful, you can buy a bouquet of beautiful flowers starting at $5.00 and up you see people walking all around town carrying these bouquets. From the seafood sections , the jewelry, the jams, the farmers market, cherries, souvenirs, baked goods... More

It's a great place for local vendors that sells a wide variety of handmade art, jewellery, souvenirs. Local food, flowers, deli, fresh seafood....everything! It's quite entertaining. The stores are great! So many delicious goodies to try. Crowded, parking is kind of a pain we heard, so we just tookpublic transit which is awesome in the city. Lots to look at,... More

Pike Place Market is thought of by some as a special presentation of foods, a citified version of a farmer's market. In reality, it's not much more than an overhyped tourist destination, jam packed with people. Yes, there are a few food purveyors, but there's far too much other-than-food stuff being sold. If you really have to go, allow no... More

I travel to Seattle on business frequently, and I visit every time I come. This place has so much to see - restaurants; fresh fruit, flower, and arts/crafts vendors, shops, and don't forget the fish markets with flying fish, huge selection of seafood, and fresh crab cocktails, shrimp cocktails, and sushi cups you can eat while enjoying the vibe. Eat... More

I love a good public market, and Pike Place exceeded my expectations. The variety of vendors is astounding, with many curious wares on display you are not likely to see elsewhere. The market is impossibly large - apart from what you see on the street level, there are a number of shops on the lower levels as well. There is... More

What an interesting place in Northwest. Energetic yet relaxed vibes, folks look happy, and stuffs at the market are actually worth giving glances. Does this place world widely unique? no. And smells so bad. sorry.
