The original Starbucks line was a long wait and I found out later that the Starbucks reserve roastery was much nicer to visit. Lots of nice things to buy and take back home and the spice store was wonderful. My spice buy was a good one.

This isn't the only great attraction, but you must go if you're in Seattle. Flowers, locals and fish are enough to draw a crowd. Grab an easy snack and coffee and head out for an amazing day on the sound!

Starbucks even named a coffee flavour after pike's place in Seattle which is where they originated. Many vendors selling fresh seafood and produce. Busy place to visit. See the fish fly when they throw it through the air just like a pizza cook throws the dough up in the air when making pizza. Interesting place for all in the family.

So many unique shops with local goods. The entire street smells like a bakery. You could spend hours looking through the many levels of shops.

So essentially, it feels like a sprawling flea market in a labyrinth. But isn't that the charm? Most of the table vendors are selling souvenirs, but there are some really interesting permanent stores. My favorite was the t-shirt shop for Slow Loris. Their artwork is great and the merchandise was really unique.

This place is so culture rich and energy that I really enjoyed being there. Yes everything is kinda pricy side but every penny was worth spending there. Food was good. Many people walking around I had blast. I saw them actually throwing salmon!!

So many interesting things to see and eat. Some markets are clearly just for tourists, but this one seemed to have plenty of locals as well. I went on a Sunday and it wasn't too crowded or touristy.The vendors were very friendly and happy to give out samples and answer questions. You could spend hours there!

Great little market area, with the famous flying fish, but so many different vendors that have great stuff and pricing. Plus if you had outside there's so many cool things like the original Starbucks and some great little snack places

We visited the Pike Place Market on a visit to Seattle. It is interesting to wander the various stalls and see the fruit, fish and various wares in a market setting. Stallholders offer various produce to try as a means of getting you to buy.
