The market is awesome. Best flowers I have ever seen for $10, lots of items to buy, both food and souvenirs. Lots of excitement and the first Starbucks store! must do in Seattle!

My wife and I went on a Saturday morning. Don't do that. The merchandise is still great, but the crowds are awful. We returned on Monday and it was much better Pure Foods Seafood has the best offering, from our experience. Ask for Harry, he's the best of the best. My wife and her family are tonight enjoying the 5... More

We went during weekday and it was crowded at some stops, but walking around and seeing all the displays of different produce, flowers, fish, meats, crafts of Washington, just exciting to watch people excited about their crafts. Wish I could have spent more time walking around.

I haven't much to talk about Pike Place, just that is a mandatory place you need to go if you are visiting Seattle. A lot good restaurants option and try to avoid go there in the weekends. To crowd

No visit to Seattle is complete without a trip to Pike Place Market. You'll find a boisterous and crowded open air market with fish, flowers, produce, crafts and more, along with numerous food and drink options. It's great for people watching, and the highlight may be the guys throwing the fish at the fish market. Get off the beaten path... More

As the day wears on the crowding increases, but the local artisans with great displays make the trip worthwhile as do the food offerings--both prepared and fresh picked. You simply can't say you have visited Seattle without sharing your fatigue and priceless finds with the cognoscenti upon your return home. Besides, the exercise is good for you as are the... More

One of the must-sees of Seattle for sure! This place is so much fun to explore and there's so much to see. Lots of unique items to try and buy or even just gaze over. And there's a Mediterranean restaurant in there that has some of the best seafood I've had!

My memories of Seattle always include a romp through Pikes, it will always be a must stop kind of place. Old favorites and new finds fill this maze of Commerce. The market is amazing as ever, friendly shop owners and tourists from across the globe. Great place for people watching. Not a great place if you are agoraphobic. The main... More

This is a must-see for anyone's first visit to Seattle. The market is overflowing with people almost any day of the week now in summertime so be prepared to wait in line for the popular places (Piroshkys, Starbucks...) Prices of some vendors products are still good value - giant bouquets are still only $10 but other (flying fish) have gone... More
