Visit an Anarchist Bookstore
Pike Place Market isn’t just fish-throwing and flower bouquets: it’s also home to Left Bank Books, a collectively owned and operated anarchist bookstore that sells primarily political and philosophical nonfiction, but also literary fiction, poetry, periodicals, zines, clever T-shirts and posters, and more. They’re also active supporters of the Books to Prisoners program, providing free books to prisoners throughout the United States upon request. You won’t find bestselling paperbacks here — this is no airport bookstore — but they do have general-interest books, and a decent selection of used titles.
