The Market

Housed in a historic building in the heart of the Pike Place Market, the market is considered to be one of the oldest and largest farmers markets in the United States. All kinds of fantastic produce, meats, fish, and baked goods can be found here, including locally grown and produced foods.

When you want to try fresh fish, but are looking for a quick lunch, this is the place for you. This is a true fish market, where everything is freshly caught and sold. The fish is served grilled, broiled, and baked, with tables outside in the beautiful sunshine.

Just Around The Corner:

Every block in the Downtown Seattle area is packed with restaurants, breweries, and shops, so if you’re after something more than just your average fast food establishment, you can expect to get some real culture with your lunch break.
