I love going to neighborhood Farmer's Markets, but Pike Place is the only place around that's a farmer's market 24/7/365. Love all the fresh fruit and veg, cheesemongers, butcher counters, fresh bread, etc--it's almost like shopping in a European market. I also love all the little bites you can treat yourself to while you shop (basically anything from the Crumpet Shop, pain au chocolat from Le Panier, tomato soup from Beecher's, souvlaki and turkish delight from Turkish Delight, I could go on and on). And who can forget awesome stores like Metzger Maps and Bavarian Meats?
Pros: Great atmosphere, friendly service, delicious food
Cons: Hard to park, very crowded in the summer
