One of Seattle's most recognizable landmarks, the public market has been in operation since 1907. An impressive variety of farmers and merchants sell their wares in an open-market setting adjacent to Elliott Bay. Watch out for the famous flying fish toss!
The Market is built on the edge of a steep hill, and consists of several lower levels located below the main level. Each features a variety of uniqueshops such as antique dealers, comic book and collectible shops, small family-owned restaurants, and one of the oldest head shops in Seattle. The upper street level contains fishmongers, fresh produce stands and craft stalls operating in the covered arcades. Local farmers and craftspeople sell year-round in the arcades from tables they rent from the Market on a daily basis, in accordance with the Market's mission and founding goal: allowing consumers to "Meet the Producer".
Pike Place Market is home to nearly 500 residents who live in 8 different buildings throughout the Market. Most of these buildings have been low income housing in the past; however, some of them no longer are, such as the Livingston Baker apartments. The Market is run by the quasi-government Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA). The Pike Place Market sees 10 million visitors annually.
