The Pike Place Market began at the corner of 1st Avenue and Pike Street on August 17, 1907, when eager shoppers snapped up every bit of the locally grown produce brought to town by a handful of farmers. Within the week dozens of wagons were showing up at this nascent marketplace. More than a century later, the Market has become a civic treasure and Seattle’s most popular tourist destination. This tour reflects a range of establishments that have been in business for at least 15 years, are businesses of historic note (longevity, venue and/or role within the region’s food culture) — and offer a place to sit and soak up the experience with a taste of their signature offerings.
