So when in Seattle, you have to go here. Honestly it does not do much for me. Yes I went and saw them throw the fish, but big deal.

My husband and I had been before 3 years ago but we took our 17 and 12 year old children to the Pike Street Markets so they could experience it too. There is so much atmosphere at the Venue and also some great views from the park nearby to the snow capped mountains. We were all amazed at the great... More

For anyone that either is visiting or lives in Seattle, the market is a must. Featuring local produce and catches along with restaurants, bars, and fun little stores over multiple stories right by the waterfront; the market is unlike any other market i've seen in my travels. Whether it is to get some food to cook, buy some funny looking... More

Fresh food in abundance to set the tastebuds drooling in anticipation! Vegetables, salads and sea food to die for. No hard sell, the traders are happy for you to drink ft by and take in all the atmosphere. A wonderful atmosphere and full of fantastic restaurants.

The market was once on the lip of destruction when wise local groups saved it. Pike Place Market also known officially as "The Public Sanitary Market" has become a worldwide draw for Seattle, for many good reasons. Located on the waterfront, the market takes you back to the 20s with open air stalls selling a variety of foods keyed to... More

You could spend hours here just walking around. Bought a mug from a local pottery maker and the most delicious, hot, fresh doughnuts right near the main entrance of the market. Watching the fish being thrown back and forth was a show in itself.

Loved, loved, loved the yogurt! Cheap flowers! Lots of fun to watch the fish throwers. Fun to go off the beaten path a bit to see what is going on.
