As everyone knows, this is a great outdoor market. If you've got nowhere to be or need some fresh edibles, check it out and pluck one of the flying (literally) fish out of the air (Hurrr). And I mean... it's Pike Place. You gotta check it out at least once if you're in Seattle.

This is a must visit in Seattle. It is just downtown and spreads across a vast area. The Pike Place Market is America's oldest farmer's market and the place has a list of stores wherein you can possibly buy anything!. The legendary chain Starbucks Coffee originated in here and also the famous Fish Video was shot here. Today, Pike Place... More

I always make it a point to stop by Pike's when I'm in town. On this trip I purchased a melted wine bottle cheese board that was made from Rachel (the pig) Red wine. This helps support the market and a portion of the proceeds go toward helping the Market Foundation support the clinic, preschool, senior center, and food bank... More

Seattle has so many no-brainer must-see places to visit! Pike Place Market is one of them, if not on top of the list. Photo ops are best at dusk for getting the famous sign glowing, but the daytime is probably the most fun for getting around inside of the market. It has a couple of levels and many hidden passages...

A must see place if you are visiting Seattle. Loads of stalls ranging from arts and crafts to flowers to seafood. Great fun and bustling with activity, buskers, etc.

I am traveling the united states a lot and straight after my arrival when being still at the airport I realized: This city is different. It felt more like being in Canada. The people are more relaxed and a little more European than in many other US cities. And in my opinion Pike Place Market is one part of the... More

Okay, it may seem odd, maybe even somewhat treacherous, for a Vancoverite to be writing a review for the Pike Place Market (dare I say it?) in SEATTLE- but I have just cause- read on... While my family's trips to Seattle have all been enjoyable, I would have to say that last summer's trip to the Pike Place Market was... More

Always entertaining, from the mix of people to the mix of vendors to the mix of food. You can find cheap eats and wicked little boutique places selling everything from 'the best macaroni in the world' to amazing cheesecake bites. There's a ton of cool goods for sale here as well. Overall a little pricey, but primarily because you're paying... More

So many fun shops and people. The folks working in the fish market are loud and cheery, my daughter was laughing the entire time. Good food, good shops, I don't recommend driving around there!
