Explore Pike Place Market
In the late 1800s, Seattle’s population began growing rapidly. Gold rushers, loggers, fisherman, and merchants flooded into the city in hopes of striking it rich. In addition, Wholesalers took advantage of this massive demand spike, buying goods from local farmers at steeply discounted prices and selling them to local consumers at a premium. As a result, the price of produce and other goods skyrocketed, leaving both farmers and consumers unhappy. To combat this, Pike Place Market was opened on August 17, 1907, with the goal of creating a marketplace for farmers and consumers to connect directly.
To this day, Pike Place Market is known as one of, if the not best farmers markets in the country. The Pike Place Market is a Seattle attraction that is certainly worth visiting. For a guide of where to stop first, check out Thrillest’s article on the best secret shops in the market.
