Pike Place opened in August 1907 and is one of the oldest public farmers markets in the United States. The building runs northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street and overlooks Elliot Bay and houses everything from produce stands to fish mongers to local artisans to jewelry and record stores. The one thing you won’t find are chain restaurants (aside from the original Starbucks nearby) as the market’s goal is to allow consumers to “Meet the Producer.”
