This market is like no other! We took a walking food tour. Having a guide to point things out and answer questions is the way to go. We were able to sample food from several different restaurants. Our guide was on her game when two restaurants weren’t able to accommodate us with sample, even though they were on the schedule, she was able to quickly find replacements. Made for an enjoyable walk through the market.

The flower vendors are amazing. Large bouquets of fresh colorful flowers for $10. I’m not sure why a flower market like this doesn’t happening other places I’ve been to.

The importance of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, breathing Pike Place Market is so great that I dedicated my entire day to it. I allowed no venturing elsewhere. It’s my belief that I think that’s the method you need to take when in Seattle. The Market is such an icon, a symbol blended so snugly into Seattle culture, that it needs to be given the time and treatment it deserves.

—Wheelchairs will find it adequately accessible. I was in a chair, and I was successfully able to navigate my way around. The market has sort of a lower floor and an upper floor, which can be reached either using elevators or your position on a street that runs closer or further from the water. The main, most popular entry to the market takes you to the upper floor, where the majority of stores can be found.

—Vendors at the market are steeped in familial, generational history and storytelling. It’s quite amazing. Definitely take time out of your shopping to have chats with the local people if possible—I managed to speak with one woman selling t-shirts, and I discovered her father, far back in time, started the business and has handed it down the family line. Yes, blame me: I have forgotten the names of the business and the woman—but if you spot a stand with hundreds of shirts stacked and friendly people behind the counter, assume it is the vendor I encountered!! I highly recommend them in particular.

—Every aspect of the market’s atmosphere, such as its unmissable neon signage, gigantic sign on the roof bearing its name, and its hilly alleys and corners, is thrilling and totally unique. It all embodies the definition of Seattle to most people. A separate attraction, the Gum Wall, is incorporated within the market, and it bleeds into so many other places to see nearby, like parks/greenspaces.

What else should I say? Pike Place Market is at the very top of my list of things to do in Seattle. I would recommend it to anyone anytime, and in any season—I visited in winter (January), which was fine. Go to Pike Place NOW!! :)

We enjoyed getting exercise while looking at the many shops and famous yucky gum wall. Also some street musicians were a hoot. The prices are generally high, but you can also find unique things not found elsewhere. The fresh and dried flowers were a good deal, though. We ate at Etta's, where the food was delicious but prices were high for us. Expect city parking prices (most places have a 2 hour time limit and the cheapest we found was $3/hr a few blocks away).

My husband and I were visiting Seattle with friends. It was a first time visit for both my husband and me. I am a flea market junkie so I knew I had to visit the Pike Market. We were staying a little less than a mile from it so we ended up walking down to it on two different days. We have a much smaller Soulard Market where we live in St. Louis but this place was huge compared to it. Even though we were only in Seattle for 4 nights, I bought a beautiful bouquet of flowers from one of the venders for only $7 and kept them in my hotel room until we left. I was a little apprehensive of the crowds with covid because social distancing was NOT possible. Everyone was wearing a mask though. I was most intriqued by the flying fish stand. I almost got hit in the head with a fish. LOL. I also bought some oyster shooters. They had a lot of souvenir stands but didn't think the merchandise was much cheaper than the local stores. They also had a pretty decent band playing there for tips. I would love to visit again when they are less crowded.

This is an open market venue with every.thing. Food, flowers, sundries, restaurants. Large with several levels of shops and bakeries. This is popular amongst locals and tourists. The Starbucks line is looking long each time we went and we tried a few of the food stalls and restaurants. Seating is extremely limited to nonexistent. Don't plan on sitting to eat. Parking is A BEAR! Flowers are the most inexpensive I've seen anywhere and a large assortment of boquets. Recommended visit!

This is a landmark and a must visit. There are many shops, different foods, and items for purchase. It is by far the largest market we've ever visited. It literally seems to go on forever and was crowded the couple of times that we went. Another perk is that the first Starbucks cafe is across the street so you can visit that as well. Also, you can visit the famous seafood market where they throw large fish back and forth as entertainment. All in all a pretty cool spot to visit while in Seattle.

Anything you can think of is probably sold at this market which has several floors and inside and outside vendors. Hungry or thirsty? There is no shortage of restaurants, fresh produce, fresh seafood, desserts, snacks, wine tastings, freshly brewed drinks and more.

Handmade jewelry and clothing, fresh and beautifully arranged flowers, souvenirs, purses, and household goods. All in one central location.

Elevators are available. On the seaside of the market, you’re on the lower level. On the city side of the market you’re at a higher elevation and on street level.

If I lived in the area, I can imagine visiting the market at least once a week. The first Starbucks is also in this area. I took a pic, but the line was rather long so I decided to spend my time exploring and shopping in the market instead.

We walked to/from our hotel about 8 blocks away, so I do not know how parking works in the area. Research this if you’re driving.

Walked through the market and loved watching the gentleman banter back and forth, tossing 20lb halibut. There are wonderful artists where you can buy local arts and crafts, as well as many snacks and eats. Highly recommend taking a couple of hours to take in the sights.

Although one of the most notable places to see in Seattle, this market is a zoo of people and strollers. There is so much to see but the layout of the 6 floors is so unusual and crowded that it was hard to get close enough to see anything. Definitely a high-priced touristy place, but you have to visit and get a selfie with the iconic sign.

We looked around for about an hour. We bought some art from the artist, for a print, $20. They have many venders and a great fish market. We enjoyed it and had a great time just walking around and talking to people from other states. We took Uber I don't know about parking.
