    Fish, fish and more fish……
    Feeling hungry, like fish well you have found the right place. There so many different varieties of fish and seafood here. All freshly caught and waiting to be taken home. I’ve never seen so many different varieties of crab legs and some were whoppers. Great atmosphere- enjoy

    Great Seafood
    This is a great seafood vendor and attraction in Pike Place Market, located in Seattle. This vendor is where visitors can see the famous fish throwing. The staff are very helpful and provide amazing entertainment by throwing fish. They can ship their fresh seafood, anywhere in the United States overnight.

    Must See at the Pike Place Market
    Yes, everyone loves the market, but what is everyone's favorite thing there? Front and center when you walk in the Pike Place Market, you will find the fish market with nearly every type of seafood in front of you on ice. However, you will also find a big crowd who have come to see the fish toss. It is something of a Seattle tradition that you have to see while you are here. As a market, it has every seafood available to you and if you have never seen a fish market it is an experience to be taken in. You are probably visiting the Pike Place Market so enjoy the experience while you are here.

    Flying fish
    This is what we came to see, the flying fish! The fish market is the most famous part of the Pike Place Market and was as good as advertised. So much fresh seafood on ice. But the crowds come to see the fish being thrown through the air and I’m glad we finally got to see it in person.

Pike Place Fish Market is an ideal place to get some fresh fish. There is plenty to choose from. It's a lot of fun wandering around and enjoying the spectacle. Some of the cooked fish is really good but some may not be as good, so care is needed when choosing!

Classic visit. They do only throw when someone buys something so you may be standing around for a while. You can also catch too, I didn’t volunteer. They did throw an octopus.

MUST SEE IN PERSON and MUST SHIP SEAFOOD HOME! I've done business with Pike Place Fish Market for years. They are a must see in person and they always deliver on seafood gifts for my family, friends, and business clients in Texas. It's a true experience both ways. Great folks and outstanding service.

This is a must see just for the flying fish. It is amazing how it all works. We were on a food tour and were able to sample some of the salmon. Delicious! They will even ship fresh fish to your home.

If your coming looking for the fish throwing then go to the corner or pike pl and pike st. There is only one stall that throws fish and it is only when people buy some. You will have to wait awhile to see if. Can’t miss the crowds. The other stalls selling fish have a huge selection of fresh fish. They only appear to sell wild caught. These ones don’t throw the fish.

Pikes market resembles open markets in China, Israel various cities in Europe. It is a Landmark that is thankfully preserved for future generations to experience in America; besides the fruit and many flower stands, it is worth going downstairs to the small Asian stores.
