Explore the Market
Welcome to Seattle’s public market and one of the country’s oldest farmers markets. Encompassing nine acres from Pike St. north to Virginia St. and from 1st Ave west to Western Ave, the Market’s historic arcade, winding alleys, stairways and lower levels offer a multisensory experience of sights, sounds, tastes, aromas and textures.
Taste what’s in season at a farm stand. Listen to a Motown or bluegrass classic from buskers while marveling over the creativity of the goods in the crafts market. Follow the scent of baking bread down the cobblestones to a European bakery. Peruse comics, collectibles, magic tricks, vinyl records, books and rare treasures in small shops.
