Loved the market. So worth the trip. Can't experience something like that in many places. Would highly recommend.

The Pike Place Market is the hub of everything fun! Cool to see the little shops and stands filled with jewelry, clothes, trinkets, food, and of course fresh fish! Definitely crazy to walk through during the busy time. Fun to just browse and people watch for sure. There is a little green space to check out the water too. All... More

Stopped by here on our way to Mount Rainier. The place is crowded with people (a.k.a. tourist). The fish marke is awesome. Bought the most expensive fresh salmon in my life but i think it was worth it ($44.00/lb). Don't wonder why it's expensive, this is a tourist spot. The flowers/plants are beautiful. Don't forget to do down the "alley".... More

This is a great place to stroll and enjoy the local culture. The produce being sold is beautiful, and there are many other food products to be had as well. Of course, the famous "flying fish" market is fun - it always attracts a crowd. Speaking of crowds, it was very busy on a Sunday afternoon - another day might... More

We bought fresh peaches and blueberries to take back to our room since the hotel's fruit was awful. There is so much to see and taste here! It's very crowded, but a fun way to see what Seattle has to offer.

What an experience! The culture, the beauty of all of the vendors. The array of fresh seafood and produce and flowers was incredible. If I live close, I would go there every week! Incredible experience.

Visiting during high season you are going to be part of a mob scene once the day get's started. If you want to visit and maintain your sanity go early. If you want to experience the performing artist and the fish throwing, go in the afternoon. Fun place to visit! Wasn't real obvious at first but there are lower levels... More

Crowded. Fresh fish being flung! Fresh and Dried Flowers. Farm vegetables. Samples. A great place to people watch and shop for fresh farm veggies, meats, fish, flowers, breads, honey, spices. Parking can be difficult. It is fun to walk around and shop. A must if you are a tourist to Seattle. Lots to see and sample!

Crowed and lively with some great stalls. We were entertained at the fish stall with a flying tuna. Just a little quirky fish flinging but fun to see. Beautiful fresh cut flowers too. The first Starbucks is alongside the market which is good if you're a coffee lover, queue too long for me. Marijuana is legalised here however we were... More

There are other excellent markets around now, in Vancouver, and Clevland, Boston, etc., but Pike Place Market continues to stand out. Great fun watching the fish toss vendors. Good touristy, and local goods shopping. And the neighborhood around the Market is eminently walkable, with other shops and restaurants near by.
