New Public Seating at Pike Place Market

Posted July 9, 2021

There are now more ways to enjoy Pike Place Market! 


Get ready to dine in front of Pike Place Market's iconic Public Market Center Clock and Sign.

For the very first time, visitors can grab food or drinks from any of our 30+ eateries and restaurants to enjoy in two new public seating areas on Pike Street and Pike Place. 

The new seating areas include wooden picnic tables, umbrellas and are sectioned off with white fencing.

Both seating areas are open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

They will remain open through Labor Day weekend. So come down and enjoy this unique opportunity!
