Most locals think they know the Pike Place Market inside and out, but chances are, even if you’ve been to the Market dozens of times, you’ve only scratched the surface. Nestled away under the street-level stalls and shops is a magical assortment of stores called the DownUnder. It’s three levels of local wares, with surprises around every corner. You’ll meander past shops with classic miniature cars and then stumble upon a storefront with elegant scarves. Down the hall, you’ll find gifts all the way from Japan. There’s an incredible range of art, crafts, food, books, and toys. Not only will you get to feel like a kid exploring, it’s a practical place to get gifts for everyone on your holiday list.
This year the spirit of the holidays continues to the DownUnder. Take some holiday pictures beneath the falling snowflakes and candy cane wrapped poles or find Market Artist Graig Anderson’s 2016 Holiday Button pop up of mousey under the mistletoe!
