This is a really cool attraction for everyone. We loved just walking around looking at everything to buy, from beautiful flowers, seafood, and handmade wares. The gum wall and the flying fish are all here. Fantastic views of the water too.

Make sure to visit all the levels. You start at street level and can walk down a level or up in some areas. The fresh flowers are cheap and gorgeous. The atmosphere is very fun loving and people are out to have a good time. The fish market is a fun place to watch the busy men. They throw fish... More

The fish, trade, and food markets that started it all in Seattle are found right here. It reverently captures the colors, sound, smells, and collisions of cultures that spawned a new culture in the wilderness. Today it bustles with tourist attraction gusto and flavorful taste treats of great variety. Not to be missed!

From fresh fish throwing to artwork, flowers and 'stuff', the market is the place to go. If a cruise ship is in dock it is crazy but still worthwhile to visit. Many floors of food and shops to explore.

Pike place is a treat for all senses, since the produce is beautifully displayed, you are invited to taste and see, the fish extravagantly displayed and all the beautiful flower arrangements give you colour, creativity and a smile on your face :)

The market was so fun to check out. We watched fish flying and smelled buckets and buckets of the most amazing flowers. It was crowded even though it was midday on a Tuesday. But definitely worth the time to see

My 4 year old really didn't care for the market. I didn't really either. It was so crowded. Packed with tourists like myself. Everyone bumping into each other because they are all trying to take pictures. I'm glad I visited, but I wouldn't go back.
