Neighborhood Shopping
Built in 1907 on the edge of a steep hill in the downtown waterfront area, Pike Place Market remains one of the country's oldest continuously operating public farmers' markets. A regular place of business for local farmers, craftspeople, and merchants, the market also ranks as one of the city's top tourist attractions. Consisting of a main level and several lower sections, the market features a range of flower stalls, comic-book stores, antiques shops, and family-owned restaurants. Before you explore the areas below street level, visit the main market's fresh produce and fish stalls. Access the market by car, public bus, or streetcar.

  • Excellent. A market or craft and food fresh including fish se.mele: huge crab, fish... short throws a very nice bracket.

  • Go into the alley and inside buildings to find excellent small and lower cost restaurants. On main drag is Turkish Delight. Best lentil soup I've ever eaten.  more »
  • This is probably the "Must Go" in Seattle. If you don't visit this place, don't say you've been in Seattle!!!  more »

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
