Pike Place Market
First Avenue and Pike Street.
Pike Place Market is home to Seattle’s first farmers market. Established in 1907 to provide a place for farmers and city folk to meet directly, the Market continues the “Meet the Producer” tradition with farmers selling their produce and value-added products at Market farm tables seven days a week, 362 days a year.
Today, more than 80 Washington farmers sell at the Market throughout the year and at the Market’s farmers markets, offering Seattle residents and visitors the freshest and highest quality seasonal abundance from their fields.

How do I get to the Market? Where is parking located?
The Market’s main entrance (home to the famous clock and sign reading Public Market Center) is at First and Pike in downtown Seattle. The Public Market parking garage is easy to locate at 1531 Western Ave. and offers some of the most affordable parking in downtown Seattle. Driving directions to the Market’s parking garage can be found here. Additional parking information is located here.
Where can I stay in or near the Market?
There are two lodging options within Pike Place Market historic district proper: Inn at the Market and Pension Nichols Bed & Breakfast. For other downtown lodging options, please see www.visitseattle.org.
Where can I park an RV in or close to Pike Place Market?
Our parking garage and parking lots cannot accommodate RVs. However, there is RV parking available on surface lots directly across from the Seattle Aquarium on the east side of the 1500 block of Alaskan Way. This is within easy walking distance of the Market.
Where can I drop-off a school or tour bus?
Unfortunately, in Pike Place Market proper, neither our parking garage nor our surface lots are large enough to accommodate school or tour busses. There is parking for busses nearby on city streets on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that they are located on city streets and are subject to City of Seattle parking regulations. Two drop-off spaces are located just behind and west of the Market in the 1600 block of Western Avenue. Busses can also park on the Seattle waterfront on Alaskan Way at piers 62/63. Both of these locations have signage indicating bus parking.
Do you provide lockers or storage for luggage or backpacks?
Pike Place Market is not able to offer any lockers or storage for luggage, backpacks, etc. If you are a cruise-line passenger or a guest in a local hotel, we suggest checking with concierge services on the ship or at your hotel, as storage is more than likely available there.
Do you rent wheelchairs or scooters?
Pike Place Market does not have the capacity to rent wheelchairs or scooters. Wheelchairs and scooters are available for rent from local businesses including the following:

Pike Place Market does not rent tables on a day-at-a-time basis.
