You may notice other Seattle visitors carrying beautiful bouquets of brightly colored flowers and wondered where they get them. Well, look no further as there are hundreds of bouquet options at several stalls in the Market, many for $15 or less!

Also, notice the large piggy bank when you enter here. The bronze cast pig’s name is Rachel and weighs 550 pounds and is the Market’s unofficial mascot.  Between $6,000 - $9,000 USD is collected annually and is used for social services provided by The Market Foundation.

INSIDER TIP! To ensure a great experience at the Market, visit on a weekday morning. Grab a coffee from the first Starbucks and take a stroll through the stalls. Crowds are thinner and the earlier you arrive, the better the selection!
