Why in the world is a fish market so famous? It probably has something to do with all the fish flying through the air. Started in 1930, at some point, a fishmonger thought it would be funny to throw the fish the customer just purchased. This act was so well received, that every vendor began to do it. Now, it's a ritual performance, where fishmongers play games, toss fish, and prank their customers with fake fish thrown at them. It's an experience unlike any other, and has become a Seattle cultural staple. And of course, the fish is fresh and utterly juicy.

Pike Place Fish Market Reviews & Ratings

  • Plenty and sights and smells and sounds to take in. It’s a little slower in the morning, good for walking around but things don’t hopping until a little later in the morning. Pretty cool to see all the local booths set up and the beautiful flowers and fresh foods. A must see if you are visiting.

  • Had lunch with a friend here just at the bottom of the ramp by the fish market. This Chinese food place has been here forever I can remember! The food was phenomenal had Mongolian beef with the walnut shrimp and the chicken chow mein. Each dish tasted very fresh and authentic. I see why this place has been here since I was a child. And that has been some time back. Place is clean and I would definitely come back again.

  • Cannot say enough good things about the crew there! I asked if my girlfriend could catch a fish there then I would propose to her. They let us do that, and she said yes! Truly memorable experience that won’t be forgotten. Bought some oysters there as well and they were HUGE! Going back next year again!

  • Love the fresh air environment. The flowers were beautiful and smelled great. The Dried fruit stand had delicious samples.

  • I was born and raised here in WA and "The Market" never gets old. Fresh seafood and produce everywhere. Beautiful works of art from talented folks. Great places to eat. The sights, the smells, the people watching, the helpful vendors...love it!
