Only a short walk from the inner city, the Pike Place Market has a great range of local vendors with an enormous range of food and items on offer. As an operational market, there is entertainment and excitement on every corner. A must see!

This market was so fun and full of life. When you first come in, there are so many rows of beautiful flowers. Afterwards you will find numerous restaurants. Tons of shoppingi for jewelry, kitschy stuff, and fresh food. It gets a bit claustrophobic after awhile, but don't miss it!

Pike Place Market is one of the places I love most about Seattle. If you love food or flowers go here. I love all the food stalls with the most beautiful produce and fish, cheese, meat. Individual vendors too. The people are all friendly. I have never felt unsafe here. I love the market spice shop with all the different... More

Interesting to see, but no need to go back. Too many beggars and homeless. Our 4 teenagers didn't feel safe in this area. Been there, Won't be back.

Second time here after visiting 5 years ago. Typical market layout, with a little Seattle flair. Would definitely recommend the yoghurt shop across from market. Check out the fish tossing.

Nothing can really prepare you for the sights and sounds of Pike Place Market! Vibrantly colored flowers, fish mongers, street performers and crowds galore. I would like to note that if you find something you'd like to buy, don't wait and come back. We did that only to find out that the vendors had changed from the day before. Some... More

We walked a few hours and did get a good view of the mountains. We had to work around all the construction. Be sure to plan what time you tour here as very few events, restaurants or shops open before 11 AM.

Very organized for a public market. The place could have more Northwestern seafood restaurants, but there are lots of wonders to see and buy!
