Must-See Market

Large arrow left

If there’s one quintessential Seattle destination, it’s the Pike Place Market. Founded in 1907, the market thrives today as a place for locals and visitors to shop the freshest salmon and crab, browse locally made crafts, pick up a colorful bouquet of paper-wrapped flowers, or enjoy a steaming bowl of chowder while admiring the view of Elliott Bay. On summer weekends, you can shop directly from Washington farmers at the outdoor Farmers Market. And don’t miss out on the market’s lower levels, where tiny boutiques, galleries, and antique shops are tucked away in every corner.
