Let’s explore and discover Sunday Funday – Pike’s Market Place in Seattle, Washington. The oldest continuously operated public farmer’s market in the United States. Since its start in 1907 it has followed its mission to “Meet the Produce”. General market hours are 9:00 am – 6:00 pm and Sundays 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. The market is open all year round. The exceptions are Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The Market has an average 10 million visitors each year. It is a must see when in Seattle, Washington.
Fresh Produce – Pike’s Market Place
The very first Market included wagons of fresh produce brought to city center by local farmers to sell. Presently local farmers still sell fresh, local, seasonal produce and specialty foods year round from the booths and tables they rent from the Market.
Fresh Seafood – Pike’s Market Place
Fresh seafood is available through local fisherman from the Pacific Northwest and Alaskan waterways. The fisherman boost a freshness that enables a shopper to purchase a filet of salmon that was caught less than 24 hours earlier. Now that is FRESH!
Fresh Flowers – Pike’s Market Place
A fresh bouquet to brighten your day. Fresh flowers sourced directly from local farmers can be found throughout the Market. Mixed flower bouquets range from elegant arrangements to rainbows of color. Looking for a beautiful gift or a delightful way to brighten your hoe or office space, this is the place.
Fresh Crafts – Pike’s Market Place
Over 200 local and regional craftspeople gather at the Market to sell their wares. Collectibles, comics, jewelry, books, preserves, honey, original art and my favorite chocolate covered cherries, just name a few of the items available for sample and purchase.
fresh music and entertainment – pike’s market place
Street performing, or busking (I did have to look that one up) is the act of performing in public places for gratuities. The Market is full of some very talented buskers. There really is a piano on every street corner.
