Pike place is a good market to roam around, but offers nothing special or specific. I could not see anything to buy and neither I could find many people inside the shops. Farmer market is a hit though.

Originally, i assumes that this was all about fish, however that is just a small part of it, the best i can describe, it is a spot for artists of all kinds. The fish spots are certainly at the front, however when you go deeper into the maze/labyrinth, there are all kinds of eclectic and artistic shops and stalls selling... More

If you are figuring out what to go see while you are in town put this towards the top of the list. Not only will you likely pick up a few items but just walking through the market is an experience itself. Depending on where you are from you have likely never seen a market like this. Grab a bag...

Infamous tourist market with amazing finds in the various shops. Get here early before the crowds for a much less crowded personal experience. Lots of samples like chocolate cherries, dried fruit, and smoked salmon. A great place to experience the flavors, smells, cuisine and friendly service of the Pacific Northwest.

Probably my 20th visit and I still love it. Forget instantly that this is a farmer's market, it isn't. It is an established market with regular vendors that is open all year long. The seafood is excellent but pricey. Shipping can be arranged but I've never been a fan of sending fresh seafood anywhere. There are some neat bargains among... More

It's just One of those places you have to visit while you're in Seattle! The pikes place market is what you will see on the travel channel when they feature Seattle Washington. There are many little restaurants inside the tented area. When we first walked in the tented area we were pleased with the beautiful aromas of fresh assorted flowers... More

We had some time to kill while in Seattle. We walked from our hotel to Pikes Place Market. Wish we had more time to spend there. What a great place to find just about anything you need or want. We really enjoyed it.

It didn't fail to impress, we'd done our research and as Markets go it's right up there! It's colourful, bright and vibrant! Maybe because it's the winter there were a few pitches empty, We love our Markets and unfortunately they are on the decline in the UK, but if you like this one and you get the chance try Doncaster...
