  Shopping Malls

The Pike Place Market is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States, dating back to August 1907. Overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront, it comprises dozens of little shops on multiple levels as well as outdoor stalls, all arranged within 9 acres between Union Street and Virginia Street in Downtown Seattle. Along with farmers, craftspeople and merchants' outlets, there are hole-in-the-wall places offering various kinds of cuisine. Also worth exploring are the artisan booths where you can find photographs, glass, ceramics, and fresh flowers. The market has several long-time street entertainers who are well known to locals, such as pianist Johnny Hahn, Artis the Spoonman, songwriter Jim Page, steel guitarist Baby Gramps, and Emery Carl.

The Pike Place Fish Market, founded in 1930, is the quirkiest corner of the complex. The open air fish market is renowned for its vibrant tradition of fishmongers tossing fish energetically through the air, which inspired John Christensen's 'Fish! Philosophy' to improve organizational culture.
