The Basics

The best way to experience Seattle’s top gastronomic attraction is by sampling your way through it. Guided tasting tours, cooking classes, and cultural walking tours of the market are all excellent ways to take in the sights and sounds, try a little bit of everything, and find spots you may have missed on your own. You can even book an early-access tour to avoid the crowds or take a chef-guided food tour for professional guidance.

Our tour was fantastic, great communication for meeting to start. Our tour guide Dani was fabulous. She had so much information and answered every question that was thrown at her. Each stop was enjoyable and we went back to several after the tour to shop or grab additional treats. Would happily go again!

Will was the highlight of this Great tour. His knowledge of the vegan food scene and historical facts of the market made it a total Win/ Win experience. I will recommend his tour to all friends and family who come to Seattle. This is a Home Run. We will return for another tour with Will on our next trip. Thank You Will for a job well done. A real professional.

Dani was our tour guide & she was great! Gave us lots of information about Seattle & Pike Place Market. The food samples were delicious & we had the opportunity to hear from the people who work at the shops. We had a much better experience than if we had done the Market on our own.

Classic Fish Throwing at Pike Place

One of the most entertaining spectacles are the seafood stalls, where fishmongers throw salmon and other fish to each other rather than passing them by hand. When a customer places an order, an employee at the ice-covered fish table picks up the fish and theatrically hurls it over the countertop so it goes flying through the air to another employee who catches it and preps it for sale. Vendors can pack fish for travel and most ship throughout the US.
