Pike Place Market
One of Seattle's most famous landmarks, Pike Place Market is the oldest continuously working public market in the country. Shop for fresh vegetables and fruits here or stop by Pike Place Fish to see fish fly. The market has numerous shops, including a health food and herb store, craft stores, and flower stands. Stop by Sur la Table, where you'll find tools with which you can prepare your recently purchased ingredients. Don't forget to pick up fresh-baked pastries for dessert and stop at one of the restaurants for lunch or grab an authentic Seattle latte before heading home.
the only dislike is the huge crowds, YOu can find some of everything here. From food to art and collectibles. There is all kinds of fresh produce. The highlight for me is the fish place where they put on a show by throwing the fish around.
I bought two necklaces from this establishment for a total of over $400. I had to return one back for repair. The other necklace had a stone fall out the first time it was worn. I took it back and was told I could not have a refund, only a credit. I was told it is THE POLICY OF THE MARKET not to give refunds. If this is true, I find it incomprehensible. I love the market and shop there often, it is one of the most beautiful places in Seattle with a great atmosphere. However, I will never give Ruby's Seattle Gift Gallery my business again.
I loved the atmosphere at Pike's. There is so many things that you can look at and try! If you love fresh flowers-this is the place for you. You can also sit there and watch them throw the fish around. I highly recommend stopping here if you are in Seattle!!!!
I had planned to visit the Market on my last day in Seattle to purchase some fresh fish to bring home, but another part of my vacation got changed. I have to visit a couple of days early. One shop was able to take my order and have it sent to the airport for me to pick up on my way out.
A cool place to spend a day. Lots of neat, weird shops. The tourists tend to focus on the fish market, so it's not so bad everywhere else. The flowers are awesome and cheap. There's a good comic store too. And native jewelry as well.
Anybody else get lost? Man, that place is confusing.
For places such as the Pike market. It may not always be the biggest bargain or anything, but just the flavor and soul of the place is the best. After you're done walking the numerous levels and nooks of the market, walk up the street to the alleyways and small corridors around to grab a cup of joe; The original starbucks is still right there; the View of the sound...
The city has heart like no other place I've ever been; stateside or overseas.
The pleasure of visiting Pike Place Fish Market, in 1993, is overwhelming. I am sure the visual effects are changed at this time. However, studying the company and feeling the positive vision through the years, ensures that the purpose and ambiance of the company is even stronger than before. The kindness and facial expressions the workers show the public is one of the best in our country.
Pike Place is an outstanding example of perserverance in the business world.

Hi-I live in Seattle and enjoy going to Pike Market every now and then. I usually avoid it in the summer and on weekends. It is a tourist trap and elbow to elbow. If you love getting shoved around and enjoy large crowds, by all means go. The Market never changes, it is always the same. There are a few shops that I always go to when I'm there and it is a great place to people watch! Enjoy..
