Welcome to Pike Place Market, Seattle's original farmers market, one of the oldest in the country, first established in 1907.
This public market sits in the heart of downtown Seattle, providing the city with a lot more than just fresh produce. Pike Place Market is considered to be a 'vibrant neighborhood comprised of hundreds of farmers, craftspeople, small businesses, and residents'. The 9-acre historic district consists of several different market areas, including the following:
- Farmers Market
- Crafts Market
- Fish Markets
- Specialty Foods
Explore each different market area, the entire conglomerate sure to satisfy all your shopping needs providing everything from locally processed meats and cheeses to kitchenware and body care products. Your group should definitely stop for a bite to eat while here, with several popular onsite eateries such as Alibi Room, the Can Can Culinary Cafe, or the historic Virginia Inn.
There are also public tours of the market, featuring classes (art, food, cooking), merchant information, and fun facts about the market overall.
