Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market

Rachel, a giant piggy bank, stands guard over the Pike Place Farmer's Market in downtown Seattle, placed there to raise funds to preserve this National Historic District founded in 1907. The bustling market has provided the local people with producer-priced goods for decades, and continues to do so today as about 100 farmers and fishmongers tout their wares. The focus is on local and organic food. They have been joined by more than 150 local craftspeople and artists who have also set up shop here, along with street performers, dozens of restaurants and numerous speciality shops. Some of the vendors present at the market on a permanent basis are Alvarez Farms, Canter-Berry Farms, Chicken Valley, Chocolate and Ice Cream Delights, Crumpet Shop, DeLaurenti Specialty Food and Wine, Mobeta shoes, Saffron Spice, and many more. The world's first Starbucks coffee shop opened here in 1971, and is still brewing up its famous beverage on the original site. At the north end of the market Victor
