Way back in 1907, the people of Seattle demanded an easy way to connect directly with the farmers for more affordable food. Today, the resulting marketplace survives as America’s most famous farmers’ market. This is Pike Place, a colorful Seattle icon that attracts hundreds of tourists and locals alike every day.
Pike Place is more than just a place to get fresh fish and groceries. It is also a great place to find arts, crafts, and other treasures. Check out the five independent bookstores, visit the famous gum wall, or stop for lunch at a restaurant where Sleepless in Seattle filmed. If you have time for only one stop in the Emerald City during your stay at our hotel in Puyallup, you can’t go wrong with Pike Place.
