Oh and don't forget about the gum wall...its a must see. It is also within walking distance to the Seattle Water Front, and the Great Ferris Wheel. A... More

Pike Place market is enchanting, and not to be missed on any trip to Seattle. The colorful stalls selling all manner of goods: freshly bunched flowers and herbs; colorful vegetables, hand crafted items of wood, glass, metal and clothing; and of course the flying fish stall. But take some time to wander into the lower levels and make interesting discoveries... More

It is totally worth the tip and lives up to the hype. My family and I spent a few hours here last summer. We had some great food and bought some cools stuff. I recommend taking a taxi, DON'T DRIVE!

The market is a must see when your in Seattle. There are so many different types for artists selling thier goods. Fresh Flowers and even fresher seafood. They will even pack your seafood for your trip home. Nearby are bakeries, coffee houses and restaurants that are really good. Don't miss seeing and experiencing " the market".

On our recent visit, we had a couple hours to explore the market. There was literally something for everyone there, especially if you're a seafood lover!

Expected not to be able to see very well-but even with the crowds it was beautifully well-lit everywhere! Kids visited with Santa and we had plenty of time to get pics. Line moved well! Get some hot doughnuts from the doughnut shop!!!!!

I live in Seattle, yet I shop or visit the market regularly. The fresh food is amazing, the flowers beautiful and the people watching is never dull. Stop by the first Starbucks and purchase a coffee at the less busy one down the street, have a fresh made mini donut and try any of the restaurants in the area for... More
