Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market is the oldest continually operating farmers' market in the United States. Founded in 1907, Seattle's downtown public market offers fresh produce, unique foods and handmade arts and crafts, overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront.

Watch the market fishmongers toss around salmon, visit the first Starbucks Coffee Shop, enjoy the music and antics of talented street performers, and soak in the unique ambiance of Seattle's most popular attraction. This nine-acre historic district hosts over 10 million visitors each year.
