What a disappointment. Lots of touristy souvenirs. Only a few food vendors. Beautiful flowers, but we didn't have a place for them while traveling. Hard to find parking.

Lots and lots of stalls, unfortunatley we stayed only 4 hours because it was in the middle of a flight conexion (we took the light train from and back to the airport, very easy). I believe one whole day would have been enough. Crafts, brickbracks, flowers, fruits and a lot of interesting food stalls, if possible eat a little bit... More

Loved this atmosphere. It's a must do if you are visiting seattle. Loved the fresh flowers. If I lived around I would be going there at least once a week just for the flowers!

This is my second visit. It is fun to walk around for a couple of hours. We bought fish at the Pure Fish Market and it was much less expensive than the first one when you walk into the market. Fresh...made a great Fish stew when we got home! Also lots of vegetable stands....so you can get what you need... More

It is definitely a must see place for anyone who is an avid food buff. Beautiful, fully operational market! A couple of stores are the only ones known to exist anywhere. I'm looking forward to a return visit!

Pike Place Market is huge and crowded, but its worth the trip. Flowers, fresh fruit and veggies, souvenirs, food, coffee, the first Starbucks, and of course, the fish markets are all there for your shopping pleasure. I didn't realize how big the market is and how much stuff other than fish is sold there. I was expecting to watch the... More

Had a blast visiting here and tasting the many delicious foods. The food shops seem to all be on the main street level, but there are several other levels with shops of all types. In the market and immediate area we loved: Uli's Famous Sausage, Piroshki Piroshki (you can smell this place from a street away), and Beechers Handmade Cheese.

What a great place to wander through for a couple of hours. The food and flowers are beautiful to look at. The colours are vibrant and every thing looks so good to eat. The flowers are amazing and I wish I could have brought some home. It was very crowded but still lots of fun. The fish guys always make... More

It is well worth spending an hour or two walking around the market. I can see how it might get crowded, but the two times I've been it has been fine. There is a lot going on visually, and it is a great place for a photographer. There are so many bake shops I lost count and had a lot... More
