There is not a better place to spend time I. Seattle than the market. Plan on spending hours getting lost in little shop and stands.

I had seen lots of pictures of Pike Place, but it was much different than I expected. The fish market is a great show in and of itself. It was not a day for me to buy fish, but watching the fishmongers work behind the counter was like watching a great stage show. Beyond the fish, I really enjoyed walking... More

Watch Flying fish, thrown amongst employees, View the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountain vista. Peruse the large variety of shops on the many levels. Buy flowers and fresh produce while listening to musical buskers. Great crafts and people watching. Close to downtown hotels.

The great thing about the Pike Place Market is that the various shops and the like are individual and full of interest. My one regret was being unable to spend more time there. There were lots of people there on the Sunday afternoon when I went but it never felt overcrowded.

I wouldn't think December to be a great time but the colder temps thin the crowds making it a lot easier to get through. Most of the vendors are still around in the winter months so you aren't missing a lot. This is a Seattle institution so you have to go. Talented artists and fresh food abound.

Best experience and feel of Seattle. The original Starbucks and roastery were the best. Don't miss out on the fish toss!

Pike Place Market embodies what made put Seattle on the map. In bygone days Seattle was a shipping center for the Northwest and the Yukon Gold rush and the Pike Place Market takes you back to those times. Its plethora of the many and varied shops on many levels will interest even the pickiest of shoppers. One could easily spend... More
