Of course, we must begin with the most famous of the Seattle markets. The vendors of Pike Place have been serving the Emerald City for over 100 years. Local farmers, fishmongers, and artisans occupy the hundreds of stalls and spaces within the beloved Market. It’s also worth noting that Pike Place became even better with a renovation project that added additional vendor stalls and spaces for admiring stunning Puget Sound views.
