The nation’s oldest continually working farmer’s market (since 1907), Pike Place Market is a jubilant, open-air celebration of fresh regional fruits and vegetables, seasonal flowers, herbs, seafood, spices, cheeses, hand-crafted work by artisans, eclectic shops, and fine restaurants and eateries–many with views of ferry and freighter traffic on Elliott Bay. Here in this revered nine-acre community with its cracked walkways and uneven cobblestone streets, the scent of sweet peas mingles with Dungeness crabs and spicy teas, street musicians compete with “free sample!” vendors, and weird things make their appearance: bottom-dwelling monkfish and rubber-necked geoducks. A piscatorial highlight: Pike Place Fish, where world-famous fishmongers have elevated salmon-slinging to new heights.
