Pike Place Market, 1st Ave., and the Waterfront Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For more than 110 years, Pike Place has been home to the oldest continuously operating farmers’ market in the United States. It’s a fascinating concoction of produce, flowers, crafts, antiques, magic, and more, hugging a bluff looming over the central waterfront on Elliott Bay. The waterfront’s docks and freight sheds have been reinvented for tourism, recreation, and pleasure travel. Myrtle Edwards Park and Olympic Sculpture Park have given the area two collective front lawns.

Currently, the waterfront is undergoing a multiyear makeover. A new seawall is being built, and a new wide surface street and park boulevard are in the works. Hint: To get the most out of this walk, avoid the market’s peak tourist days (especially summer Saturdays)."

One of the most "must do" activities in Seattle. Years later and we still don't get enough of it! Best fresh flowers (price and variety) anywhere around here, great food, great shopping!
