My favorite part was the gum wall under the market, the fish throwers where very fun to watch. There's beautiful flowers you can buy in the market for a great price. Also you get free samples every where make sure to try the dried apples and dark chocolate linguine. The original Starbucks was pretty cool to see. Everything is really... More

Despite what many people say "it's a tourist trap" i enjoyed every second of it. It's definitely a place you should go at least once if you've never been to Seattle. Just like any market place, with lots of vendors for food, jewerly, shirts, arts & crafts, bags, fruits, etc. But here you have a bonus of FRESH seafood that... More

Jerry, our tour guide seemed to have a good backgound of the history and current market. We started with bisquits that he had picked up before we meet. Still very warm and flavorful. The 2.5 hours went by very quickly and we were both full from all of the samples. We are local, Bellevue, but had not ever taken a... More

This is a real food market that would be good for buying food and other necessities. We were amazed at how cheap and beautiful the flowers were. That being said, we didn't find anything non-food related that we wanted (we found stuff at other places), and alot of the stores on the lower levels were weird and/or closed. Pike Place... More

So much to see and do. So much food. So many flowers. The talented local musicians were our favorite stop here. Reasonable prices for most items. Stores in basement as well!

I went here with my 18 year old step daughter on a Sunday afternoon, around 3ish - we ended up staying until everything closed down. I wish we would have went earlier - but that was the soonest we could get there. However, at that time it was not busy, as I have read in other reviews. There are so... More

Even if you don't plan on buying anything, Pike Place Market is worth a walk thru just to give your eyes a feast. From the bountiful fresh vegetables, the aromatic floral bouquets to the stunning display of seafood - there are so many sights, sounds and smells to fill your senses with. The vendors were all so friendly and willing... More

This place is famous for fish throwing. Good amount of foodstalls and local crafts, however not on my must see recommendation.

What a great farmer's market! Vast amounts of fish, flowers, vegetables and more. All fresh, with enthusiastic people selling the goods. Great samples and a quite a show, even if you don't buy anything. Got crowded on the weekend, but not bad on a weekday. We went several times because it was so enjoyable. Must see in Seattle!
