The Pike Place Market Creamery is a health-minded dairy shop located in the Market. We believe in eating good foods to feel good. We also believe in tasty, pure foods that don’t let your taste buds suffer in the name of health.
We support local farms with cows, goats, and hens for most of our products. We also sell many items from other states to provide you with a wider selection of fresh and cultured dairy. We’re starting our 44th year in business.
Find us in the Sanitary Market on the east side of the cobblestone street behind Jack’s Fish Spot and next to Three Girls Bakery.
