Got to see the fish toss at Pike Place Fish Market!! Thanks guys!!! Have been looking forward to that since going through customer service training and learning all about knock your socks off service. You didn't disappoint me! Everything else was also just wonderful. All the fresh cut flowers, arts and crafts, fresh spices, etc. This is a definite must see in Seattle!

Nice market. Open air and indoors. I liked all the different nationalities I saw. Good place to hang out and people watch as well as get fresh fish, flowers, and baked goods. It is also the home of the original Starbucks!

This is what a Market should be, after visiting San Francisco's Fisherman's Warf this did not let us down. It still maintains its maritime roots and a huge array of fresh market goods which we really wanted to purchase but were staying in a hotel. The sights and sounds were a delight and although crowded everyone we encountered were friendly and more then accommodating. Pikes Place Market continues to draw me downtown Seattle and never miss going there when in town and see the fish a flyin!

I grew up in a town south of Seattle, and it was always my favorite thing when someone would come visit. Why? Because we would go to Pike Place Market! The market is a staple in Seattle, and it is almost a sin for any visitor to miss it. It has everything - fresh produce and fish to make delicious meals with, small vendor stands with hand made arts and crafts, flower shops with freshly cut flowers. You can usually even find a musician or two hanging around, playing for change.

The biggest attraction to the market for people who are not from Seattle is the Fish Shop. This is the one that is always shown on TV and featured in articles about the market. I'm going to tell you a secret..... while their show is fun, their fish is not the best for the price! If you are looking to purchase some delicious freshly caught King Salmon or King Crab, walk a few stalls down.

There is also a second floor, which a lot of people do not realize that house some pretty cool shops. My favorite is a comic book shop that usually has some great nick nacks.

If you are in Seattle go here. You won't be disappointed.

My sister from New Hampshire came to visit us this fall. it was her first time on the West Coast. Besides visiting the Space Needle, she wanted to see the infamous Pike Place Market. She wanted to see the fresh cut flowers, the fish toss, the arts and crafts, gift items, the beautiful displays of fruits and vegetables, all the available fresh seafood, meats, freshly made sausages and cheeses. Needless to say, she was in total awe, and so were we, even though we have been there many many times before. Unfortunately we did not have all day, therefore could not linger. But She got the picture, and, as she told me, is already saving up for a next visit to Seattle.
