Locals must just love this place - amazing selection of fresh produce - flowers were very cheap and they looked amazing. Unfortunately not the sort of thing a traveller can indulge in. There were some great bargains to be had so ensure you have plenty of time to explore this area and a map as it winds back and forth... More

The fishmongers were a treat to watch. They were working having fun and entertaining. The row after row of fresh cut flowers would turn anyone's eye. The key lime cheesecake on a stick was very tasty as was the fish and chips at Lowell's. Worth the time.

Went to the Original Starbucks, Le Panier, an authentic French bakery, the original Sur la Table, DeLaurentis, a gourmet food and wine store. Purchased beautiful flowers from vendors, had Parisian pastries at LePanier, and bought great Washington State wine at DeLaurentis. I love watching people, good food and wine and this was perfect.

So many fresh items: fruit, seafood, flowers, pasta, jerky, etc. The prices are perfect, the salesmen are friendly, and the ambiance is indescribable. I only wish I lived closer to do my shopping daily/weekly at the market. And when looking for a different kind of gift...the options are plentiful from the artisans selling their wares. Always a wonderful experience.

Get a coffee at the very first Starbucks, then walk 3 minutes and watch how the fish at the market are tossed around.

What a great experience. So much so that we went back for a second day. I would love to live close by to enjoy the fresh flowers, seafood and produce on a regular basis. A stand out experience.

You have to put Pikes Market at the top of your list of things to do and see in Seattle! in fact, we went twice! We were there mid-August so I expected crowds and it was very busy with people packed in everywhere but it was such an energetic place! There is something for everyone there from fresh fish and...

I have lived in Seattle for about 2 years and my favorite place to visit is definitely the market. It is vibrant, alive, intense, crowded, ever-changing and always offering something unusual and unexpected. Walking through the market offers you opportunities to eat, sample local produce, watch flying fish, experience various tastings and purchase all sorts of products from jewelry and... More

Loved watching the fish being tossed around. Such fresh fish and the quantity and quality of the fish is just amazing. The fresh flowers were absolutely beautiful. Could not help but buy a bouquet of flowers to take to our guests for dinner. Same flowers in AZ would have cost over $50 but they were only $10 at the Market.... More

I'm not sure where one would find ample parking near the market because I've always walked from my hotel. If you go first thing in the morning, shops are just beginning to set up and the crowds are tiny. Be sure to stop at the bakeries along the street, grab a coffee at the original Starbucks (be prepared for a... More
