Taking a Day Off - A Visit to Pike Place Market

More than 85 local farmers keep the farm tables stocked year-round with seasonal Washington-grown fresh fruits, berries, nuts, vegetables, herbs, flowers and honey.
 Created more than a century ago to connect the city’s citizens and farmers, Pike Place Market is a beloved Seattle landmark, welcoming more than 10 million visitors a year. Encompassing a nine-acre Market Historic District overlooking Elliott Bay, the Market remains the bustling center of farm fresh, locally sourced, artisanal and specialty foods.  It’s a place where you can “Meet the Producer”—the farmers, butchers, fishmongers, cheesemongers, bakers, winemakers and purveyors who bring their bounty to your table. The Market features one of the largest craft markets in the country, featuring all locally made handcrafted goods. And with more than 225 small independent businesses and a diverse array of restaurants, the Market offers endless opportunities for delight and discovery.
