Pike Place Market


Pike Place Market

85 Pike Street #500, Between Pike and Pine Streets at First Avenue, Seattle, 98101, WA

Make sure you come early to see Pike Place’s famous fish tossers at full strength, and be prepared to get involved; the wags behind the fish counter will toss a fish to Mom with little warning, or pull a string attached to a fish on display just as you are about to pick it up so it looks like it tried to jump into your hand, or make you shout your order at full throat just because they do, too. Kids love the show — and it’s free!

Other highlights at Pike Place Market include a wide array of restaurants, coffee shops and stores — don’t miss a stop at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. There’s also a Giant Shoe Museum — pay a quarter to view the biggest shoe you’ve ever seen!
