I just love coming to Seattle and wandering around the market. There is something for everyone and every visit I find something new. Great restaurants, great shopping and great people watching.

We went to the Seattle pike place market in the morning right after we had breakfast in a near by restaurant. Veggies and fruits were very fresh and try-tempting which made us buy some and eat it in setting area in the market that has a view of the harbor. I would highly recommend visiting the market.

The Market has a little something for everyone and it is never a place just filled with tourists. There is also a very busy market life of locals who spend all their time there, street performers, people watchers, and then of course-- the tourists! There are far more nooks and crannies to this place than first meets the eye too.... More

Like place has everything. We went on a Saturday and my only regret is that we don't live in Seattle because shopping there for food would be crazy good.

No trip to Seattle would be complete without visiting the historic Pike Place Market. The restaurants and food stands offer a wide variety of cuisine to choose from but the charm of the open air market with vendors selling everything from fresh seafood, vegetables, fruits to photographs, art, flowers and more offers something for everyone. Exploring the lower floors of... More

This place has always been a great place to hang out, walk around, and get local products from around the state. It has music, fish markets, flower vendors, and so much more. Oh and don't forget about the gum wall...its a must see. It is also within walking distance to the Seattle Water Front, and the Great Ferris Wheel. A... More

Pike Place market is enchanting, and not to be missed on any trip to Seattle. The colorful stalls selling all manner of goods: freshly bunched flowers and herbs; colorful vegetables, hand crafted items of wood, glass, metal and clothing; and of course the flying fish stall. But take some time to wander into the lower levels and make interesting discoveries... More
