Visited on a beautiful but cold sunny Saturday and found that everyone had the same idea ! The placed was packed and buzzing with the crowd spilling out onto the streets. We were spoiled for choice with a multitude of restaurants , bakeries & other eateries plus the Fish markets, Florists, Vegetables and a hundred other stalls. The Market started... More

The fish, produce, flowers and art make this worthwhile, but the real draw is the history and culture. This is Seattle is a Seattle icon that is not just a tourist attraction, but a market at which locals still shop on a regular basis. It is an important part of what defines Seattle.

Spring at the Farmers' Market portion means tulips; glorious, multi-coloured bouquets of them. Huge bouquets were going for a mere $10 and people were leaving with armloads of them. It can be very crowded and a little confusing but well worth the stroll if for no other reason than to watch the fish mongers and marvel at the amount of... More

The Seattle Market is a unique experience. Crowds, energy and shopping await visitors. Pick a sunny day and try to go early so that you can visit for an hour or two before lunch. Bring your camera.

The iconic pike place market represents everything that is Seattle.Established more than a 100 years ago as a famers market, it is now not only a place to find local produce but local home-made crafts as well. It is located a stone throw away from the Seattle waterfront which has amazing views of Elliot Bay. One can enjoy local seafood,... More

This place is the quintessential Seattle. Of course people always see the salmon being thrown and the great seafood for sale, but this is also a place to look at some cool arts and crafts being sold, grab a drink at a great bar, and grab some food at one of the many, many great restaurants right near the market....

This place definitely reminded me of my hometown (SF bound! Combo of Fisherman's Wharf and Ferry Building). I love how there are food places everywhere I go -- fresh food, fresh flowers, of course there's the very first Starbucks. There were just so many shops in this neighborhood alone. Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend that much time here so... More

If u don't mind massive crowds, it's a fun venture on a sunny day. Hit the Market Spiced Tea Company for their brand only sold at Pike Place Market. Flowers are terrifically fresh and beautiful. Produce good and fish usually very good, though you might not want an entire fish thrown at you!

I was very excited to visit the different shops and restaurants at the Pika Place Market. It is definitely a must stop if you are visiting Seattle. The fish market was a blast.

There are a lot of funky shops to browse in and some decent places to eat, but at night I wouldn't step foot in that market. Parking can be tough, especially considering the mayor of Seattle hates cars and removes parking spaces every opportunity he gets. It's bad enough the place smells like pee, but there is a lot of...
