Pike Place Market at 100

Pike Place Market, a Seattle icon and the nation's oldest continuously operating farmers market, celebrated its centennial on August 17, 2007.


It's everyone's Market.

Since the first shoppers swarmed a handful of farmers' carts on Aug. 17, 1907, the Pike Place Market has held fast to its character. To commemorate the 100th anniversary, we're exploring the Market of yesterday and the Market of today. It's a colorful place that celebrates food, culture and craft and bustles with locals and visitors alike.
