In 1911, Jack Amon came to America and began selling fine seafood from a stand in Seattle’s world-famous Pike Place Public Market.
The city and the market were young, but all of the new residents immediately recognized the value of the local fish and shellfish. Jack Amon traded in the best of the best.
Jack’s son, Sol has worked at the market for over 60 years and next in line are his grandchildren Isaac and Carlee who continue to run the business, with the help of their tireless crew. It is still a single long counter in the Pike Place Market, but the Pure Food Fish Market now sells more seafood than Jack Amon ever dreamed. The beginning of fast commercial air travel has given people everywhere the chance to enjoy fresh seafood from their establishment.
One thing hasn’t changed since the days of the original owner: Pure Food Fish Market still sells only the very best.
