We took family members and saw most of the place. They loved that it had so many different things made and for sale. Got to watch the fish throwing, Got to see a little magic at the magic shop downstairs. Got a great view of the Ferris wheel.

Definitely a must see if you are in Seattle. The food market, seafood stands, flower stalks, craft tables and specialty stores are a feast for the eyes. I could spend days here!

You've got to go, at least to see them throw the fresh fish back and forth! This funky meandering market showcases Seattle's fresh seafood, flowers, and fruits in their glory. There are long lines to get into the original Starbucks, that looks like it did when opened. Not corporate looking at all. Long lines also for a place where you... More

We walked around all over. Got to enjoy the fish throwing and the characters engaging the crowd. We also went to see a little garden area with a SUPER view off to the side of the fish stand. We had a glorious view and wrote our initials on the PIG.

Overcrowded street market. Yes, they sell fish by the wharf. I am sure once this was a magical part of Seattle. Now it is jammed with tourists. If you have a choice and not on a tour, go somewhere else by the water to enjoy real seaside ambiance.

Walking along the market with its various assorted vendors was so refreshing!!! The fresh seafood was unique to experience. The fresh flower aroma permeated throughout sections of the venue. Wish I could get fresh seafood, vegetables, and flowers at my home!!! A must see while in Seattle.

So busy here but very interesting, located in several buildings over a couple of blocks you could spend a day wandering around and up and down all the levels. Make sure you see the guys throwing the fish of course

It's an open, public market place with vendors on the street and inside few levels. The market has everything from fresh fish, fresh flowers, fresh produce, to hand crafts. A tourists delight, so go early and stay for lunch. Also, it's a walking distance Great Wheel of Seattle, Aquarium, Public Library, Sky View Observatory...

Our recent visit to the Pike Street Market was relaxed and fun! We climbed the wide, stairway from the waterfront because we wanted to start at the top! We made our way to the fish market, Market Spice Tea Shop and the craft and food vendors before heading to shops across the cobble stoned street where we devoured fresh crab... More

Farmers and fisheries in this place make it special. If you like fresh fish this is the place. Just be prepared to climb all the stairs
