    Pike Place Market is a landmark of #Seattle, and one of the oldest continuously functioning markets in the United States. I had been there once before when I was a kid, but this time I was on a mission to go on the ultimate Pike Place Market food tour!

    In this video you’ll find some of the best food within the market and all the details about what to order and eat when you’re in Seattle, Washington. One tip - go early to start eating before the main huge rush comes - when it gets to mid-day, the market is packed.

    Here are all the restaurants we tried at #PikePlaceMarket:

    Lowell's Restaurant - For breakfast we went to the legendary Lowell's Restaurant, serving a mix of classic American food including seafood. I wanted to try their dungeness crab eggs benedict, which was a little expensive, but pretty good.
    Dungeness crab eggs benedict - $25

    Pure Food Fish Market - Next to Lowell’s don’t miss the smoked salmon. Again, it’s not cheap, but it’s so good, salmon glistening and embedded with smoke.
    ½ Pound salmon - $16.56

    Ghost Alley Espresso - Next on this Pike Place Market food tour I was in desperate need of a coffee to begin the morning so we navigated our way past the gnarly gum alley to Ghost Alley Espresso. Great place for a quick cup of espresso.
    Doppio espresso - $3

    Piroshky Piroshky - A legendary bakery that serves mostly Russian influenced baked goods, both sweet and savory, is Piroshky Piroshky. Again, I tried to keep it pretty classic, and Seattle style, so Jason and I split the salmon pate piroshky. It was very tasty, with a cream cheesy taste.
    Salmon - $6.85

    Pike Place Chowder - Having won every chowder competition and award in the US as possible, Pike Place Chowder serves America’s #1 Chowder. So you know you can’t miss it when you go to Pike Place Market. We got in line about 20 minutes before they opened and line didn’t take long. You order, get your chowder, and then sit down. I don’t have too much experience with chowder, but indeed it was good, and I also really liked the seafood bisque.
    Total price - $37.76 total

    Beecher's Handmade Cheese - Another classic is Beecher's Handmade Cheese where you can sample cheese curds and also order grilled cheese sandwiches.
    Flagship sandwich - $7.49

    Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt - They also have a very loyal following and for sure it’s some of the best yogurt I’ve ever tried.

    Market Grill - Finally to end this Seattle food tour we stopped at Market Grill, right in the heart of the market and I ordered the grilled salmon plate. Overall, it was good, and a perfect ending to this extreme food tour!
    Grilled salmon plate - $15

    Thank you for watching!

      American food soooo expensive compared to the mountains of amazing Asian food Mark has purchased over time.

        Mark must feel "homesick" for cheap, exotic, tasty street foods of India, China, Mexico, Brazil.

                                I love Pike Place but prefer North Atlantic seafood. The fresh fruit was especially wonderful, even in January. That New England clam chowder not authentic though.

                                                Why are all Food Vlog videos have the same music? Does it come a stocked music in their editing software? LOL

                                                    It's Mark's show not theirs. I'd be weirded out being an extra on someone's reaction reel for an entire public market too.

                                                            Yep, overpriced. We visited again this past summer and my son and husband went salmon fishing and caught some beauties that we shipped home. Seriously, $30+ is silly. Gorgeous fresh poke in Hawaii is cheaper per pound.

I know you aimed for what PNW is famous for, but there are a lot of different foods besides seafood. Anyways, will be honored to show them to you:)
