Pike Place Market


Founded in 1907, “the Market,” (as locals refer to it) is one of the oldest continually operating farmers’ markets in the United States. It’s in a multilevel complex overlooking Elliott Bay and part of a 9-acre historic district. At street level on its western side are produce, fish, meat, flower, and craft stands, with various other retailers filling out downstairs shops. Across the narrow cobblestone street that is Pike Place are storefronts and walkways leading into yet more shops and restaurants.

Watch fishmongers toss salmon, visit the first Starbucks outpost, enjoy the antics of talented street performers, and soak in the flavor of Seattle’s most popular attraction. You can also grab a treat (or several) and stroll down to Victor Steinbrueck Park at the Market’s northern end for an impromptu picnic looking out across the Sound to the Olympic Mountains. A 15-minute walk north of here will take you to the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park.
