Many companies have tried to capture the enthusiasm of this group of guys... a must see, even if you don't like fish!
Just walk around, there are fresh fish,meat, pasteries, vegetables all over to purchase. There are also quite a few places to eat and drink in the area.
A large shopping area with lots of fresh fish, you can buy many other food items and souviners, some hawker shops.
See Pike Place Market, Elliot Bay Bookstore, get a tattoo at Vyvyn's, check out the Seattle Art Museum and galleries, get coffee at Torrefazione Italia on Occidental in Pioneer Square.
This long-standing public market has everything. I've heard that the fish-throwing spectacle in the seafood market can be exciting, but ran out of time to see it.
Definitely take the 'Locks Tour' -- great views of the city and sound. And, of course, you should 'do' the Public Market.
All the modes of water travel.
The old farmer's market with modern twist. You can still buy fresh vegatables and salmon here, but also jewelry, t-shirts, and all kinds of knick-kancks for somewhat exaggerated prices.
A small bookstore selling a large selection of books from small presses. An excellent place to find those hard to find books on art or politics.
Pike Street Market is a great place to see all the local fish, flowers, fruits and nuts.....
The fish get thrown around by the packers for entertainment.
Spend at least half a day browsing through the Pike Place market for frest fruit, sea food and pastry.
Pike Place market is worth a visit.
Men throwing fish around and if you want a close up photo; over your head!!
