From the Pike Place Martket to the Harbor Steps

Pike Place Market has always been the epic center of downtown Seattle. This public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in the city and is one of the oldest continually operated public farmers’ market in the United States. The Pike Place Market, the underground restaurants, and the Harbor Steps locate between Freeway 99 and the 1st Avenue from Virginia Street to University Street, and they together dominate the activities along the waterfront. Before the Pike Place Market was found in 1907, farmers and producers sold their food and products to some middle persons, who would then sell to the stores and finally to the customers. The formation of Pike Place Market changed the format and routine of how products are sold. Farmers and merchants can now directly sell their food and products to the customers. To allow the customers to meet the producers is the market’s mission and founding goal.
