Pikes place market is full of crazy people running everywhere, tons of vendors, street performers, tons of energy and super busy! But you have to do it once! The vendors are awesome and the flower vendors are to die for! There is something for everyone but hold on for a ride! It will take you at least an hour to... More

It is certainly a must see! Great vendors and delicious food. I'd recommend the doughnuts available from daily dozen-- in general it's crowded, be prepared.

Great place to visit. The fish market was very cool. The flowers that were for sale were incredible and cheap. However if you city has a market like this, they are pretty much the same thing.

We fell upon this area during a gap between checking out of our hotel and heading to the airport. What a wonderful way to pass the time! The public market is filled with brightly colored and fresh smelling foods and flowers. The surrounding shops vary widely and nearby small cafes abound with treats. I finally understand the fuss about authentic... More

If you are in Seattle, you have to go here! Lots of shops, good stuff to buy and plenty of entertainment! Love the guys throwing fish when someone purchases one! It was crowded, but still fun to visit.

We were staying nearby the market, so we went over a couple of times. Always crowded except for the first thing in the morning when they're setting up. There is plenty of vendors with all types of things for sale, as well as the fish, produce, etc. A number of places to grab something to eat as well.

Although we really didn't buy anything we enjoyed walking through the market- located on the water, with lots of shops and people, we were glad we had the experience - even saw the flying fish!

This place is great to visit for the wide variety of local vendors, flower market, fish market, fruit and vegetable sellers, etc. On weekends in the summer this place is filled with both locals and tourists. Across from the market is Post Alley which is filled with shops and restaurants. Pop in for an hour or two or better yet... More

If you want to check out the market with all the other million tourist. This is the place to be. If you want to buy flowers. Seriously they are amazing here and cheap. We certainly can't get them like that at home and at that price. Wish they could make the flight home.

What a great experience. The smell of the beautiful, giant, inexpensive flowers almost overwhelm the smell of all the gigantic fresh seafood brought in every morning. Tons of great places to eat and cute shops and boutiques. No junk here ( lids/ generic cell phone case) Wonderful aromas abound from the flowers to freshly made donuts. Check out the lower... More
