We visited pike place mainly because of the whole fish throwing thing you see on TV thinking it would be interesting to see. It was a busy place and there were loads of people there - parking is a nightmare - so you better off parking a little ways away and walking in. The first thing that surprised us was... More

We stayed downtown and ventured to this gem. It's very busy, but there is such a variety! Food, flowers, farmers market, fresh fish, and shopping. I can't wait to go back again. Very cool!

You have to see the Pike Place Market but you better plan on crazy crowds and people. The flowers for sale were outstanding and I wanted to get more pictures of them than I did but the traffic was crazy. The vendors have some nice things but nothing that is completely indicative to Seattle so you don't really need to... More

This a must see while in Seattle. The throwing of the fish to all the other stuff to see. They have flowers, veggies, hot cider to Arts and crafts. Great place will diffently go back if I'm in Seattle again.

This is a very specyfic place. Each person who cooks can find a lot of interesting, high quality ingredients here. Great fish, meat, vegetables, spices & alcohol. Every foodie can try a lot of different tastes in many restaurants and bistros. Lot of them are just food kiosks, some of them are proper restaurants. In most of them you will... More

We visited Pike Place Market a few times during our Seattle stay. It is an interesting market place, though is not largely unlike what we find in our home community. There are tons of vendors, with art, clothing and food for sale. Worth a visit!

Pike's Place Market is definitely a must do experience for anyone vacationing in Seattle. As a local, though, I also love the market. Here's why. Delaurenti Specialty Foods, located just inside the most famous part of the market is one of the best gourmet food shops I've ever known. The service is fabulous, the cheese and meats are sublime, and... More

A Seattle landmark. Have been going there for years. Always very crowded. Always with the best produce and seafood the area has to offer. A must visit.

This was my first trip to Seattle, and Pike Place Market had to be the first stop. We came really early in the morning - so early the guys were still putting the fish out and getting ready for the day. It was really neat, and wow, I have never seen such big lobster tails, salmon, shrimp...you name it! Of... More
