Had a stroll through the markets on a Saturday afternoon- 6 levels all packets with hundreds of little stalls- fresh flowers, food, gift shops- even a fish market where they throw fish at each other! Very entertaining! Across we got to see the first ever Starbucks to open! A very busy venture but this adds to the vibe and atmosphere-... More

Nice place to kill some time and enjoy people watching. Lots of food options and large crowds and various shops around. Best parking option is near U.S bank a few blocks away for $3 hr

Wow! An iconic must see. Seafood, flowers, fruit, chocolate, cafes, restaurants, etc... something to experience for everyone even if markets is not your scene. Definitely one of the best markets around the world.

Classic outdoor market in the heart of downtown. Fresh fruit, fresh seafood and other great provisions. Always a good visit.

A nice sunny day in Seattle made our visit to the Pike Place Market even better. We enjoyed all of the fresh vegetables and flowers plus the seafood vendors. Great views of Puget Sound were abundant from many places in the market. To avoid having to find a parking spot, we used the lite rail system to get into town.... More

This place can be packed. I have went on the weekend and during the week. If you don't like the hustle and bustle on the weekends, it is a good visit during the week. Granted, there are more vendors on the weekends but there are less people during the week. Take your time and enjoy the free samples! There are... More

It is borderline criminal to visit Seattle and not spend a couple of hours or more here. Just go and soak it in. The culture, the vibe and the people. This is simply a must

This place is PACKED. It's really packed or at least it was when we got there which was about 2:00. I've heard since that tour ships are emptying near there now and maybe that's the reason. Friends had told me to guard my purse while there and I can see why. We inched through and sometimes came to a complete... More

Patience. Be patient in deciding where you want eat, or what you want to buy. Ok, I'm an old guy and can't eat much. We decided to eat at the first restaurant we saw after braving the stair climb. Wrong. Not that it was bad, it is just that there are many good eating establishments. Take your time, look around,... More
