Pike place is a market mainly selling seafood. All around are different shops including the very first Starbucks that ever opened. On top of the market you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the ferris wheel. Great place to visit to get a sense of the real seattle. Lobster tails and crab legs were the biggest I've...

No plan needed. Just walk through and take in the city, people, colors, food, and atmosphere. Make sure to walk all the way up and down. Come on an empty stomach and snack on the awesome goodies throughout!

This market is well documented. It's spectacular and the centre piece really and focal point for the Seattle waterfront. Really beautiful market as far as food and craft markets go. I'd get there early as it gets really crowded by midday. The fish stalls are fascinating, so much salmon. When I went the dahlias were in full season and you... More

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.
