We went after lunch time because we went to the needle and glass museum first. Everything closes down by 5pm (except restaurants) so it would have been better to go early in the morning. The flower bouquets were absolutely gorgeous, huge, fresh colorful for only $10-15. We were only staying a few days in a hotel so it didn't make... More

If you are in Seattle for the first time you should make it a point to go. Good food, cool things to see as well.

I was there on a sunny Saturday. As I expected, it was crowded to the point you could not move around very easily. There were booths offering everything you can imagine. It is noted as a fish market, and you might catch the fish mongers throwing the fish to each other. That is fun to watch. The Market is an... More

You simply cannot visit Seattle and at least consider a walk through Pike Place Market. It is home to so much kitch there is something faux quirky for nearly everyone. Be aware that the crowds and multiple levels can be a bit difficult to navigate with a stroller.

Been there many times when visiting Seattle. The Flowers, the food, the people! So many shops. Have I mentioned the flowers?! Where can you get these flowers for 15.00? ONLY at Pikes!

Take your time and enjoy what the market has to offer. You'll see tons of small vendors selling everything from fish to bakery as well as clothing to jewelry!

Yes the produce, fish, and flowers are fresh and reasonably priced, but is it worth fighting the crowds? Disappointed!

Yes it's mostly just a meeting place for tourists, but it's still a great place to spend a day. Shop, eat or just people watch! It's amazing how many nooks and crannies there all. So many levels and hallways. I spent a whole afternoon there and I don't think I saw it all.

Extremely crowded. Would suggest going on a weekday to avoid the many locals. Fabulous flowers and local produce. Easy walk from downtown Seattle.
