Cinco de Mayo, Pike Place Style

Cinco de Mayo, Pike Place Style

Posted May 2, 2016

Pike Place Market is home to a variety of delicious Mexican eateries, specialty groceries stocked with imported Mexican ingredients, and colorful Mexican folk art. Look no further for all of your Cinco de Mayo fiesta needs. Here is a sampling of what you'll find...

El Mercado Latino

1514 Pike Place #6 (Post Alley)

Welcome to hot sauce heaven! Hot, hotter or hottest - take your pick. This photo only captured a fraction of their gigantic selection of salsas picantes. El Mercado Latino also carries a variety of spices, flours, candies, beverages, Goya products, and our personal favorite: Sriracha popcorn.

Cintli by Beto Yarce

1501 Pike Place #321 (Lower Level 3)

Specializing in Latin folk art, Cintli is a small independent shop located "Down Under" on level 3 below the Main Arcade. You can't miss the bright colored flags streaming out into the hallway. Inside you'll find a gallery of meticulously curated jewelry, masks, figurines, home decor and more.

La Vaca

1429 1st Ave
La Vaca's walk-up window on 1st Ave. may be the Market's smallest restaurant space, but don't be fooled by its tiny size! We assure you, their burritos are HUGE and jam-packed with flavor.

El Borracho

1521 1st Ave
This hip, easygoing taqueria boasts a long list of creative tacos (including lots of vegan options), plus nachos, margaritas and other cocktails. For $1 tacos (that's right) and discounted drinks, hit up happy hour, 4-7 pm, Monday-Friday.

Los Agaves

1514 Pike Place #7
Tucked away behind Jack's Fish Spot, Los Agaves will lure you in with tantalizing aromas of authentic Mexican street food sizzling on the grill. The breakfast burrito is a favorite among Market regulars.

Mexican Grocery

1914 Pike Place
It can be difficult to find authentic Mexican ingredients, but not when you have a bona fide Mexican grocery store in the neighborhood. Located next door to the Orignal Starbucks, the aptly named Mexican Grocery has pantry staples, plus fresh tortillas, tamales and to-go food made in house for easy meals.

Mariscos Mexican

97B Pike Place (Economy Arcade)
Two words: fish tacos. Simple and superb, Mariscos' menu has all your favorite Mexican dishes done right.
