Strap on your walking shoes and head to the Market, located 8 blocks from Paramount Hotel Seattle and explore all that the Market has to offer, which is much more than fish and produce.
Because the Market is known as a farmer’s market, there are dozens of produce vendors feature fresh local foods, many offering samplings!
But did you know that in addition to seafood and produce, the Market is home to dozens of specialty food stores?
The Market has its own creamery featuring an amazing variety of milk and dairy products.
The Pike Place Creamery’s “Dairy Moomorabilia” museum, owned by Nancy Nipples” Doughty, houses a kitschy collection of cows, chickens and related cartoons.
Find spices, herbed vinegars, olive oils, cheeses, meats and baked goods from the Pacific Northwest or around the world.
Demetrios Moraitis, owner of Mr. D’s Greek Delicacies, sometimes sculpts his gyro meat into likenesses of former U.S. presidents, the Venus de Milo, and local personalities.
The Pike Place Market Foundation was established in 1982 and is a non-profit organization. It supports housing and services for our low-income neighbors by fundraising, advocacy and community building. Donations collected from Rachel the Pig as well as other funds raised help low income neighbors who work, learn and live in and around the market.
