    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!

    Maybe I'm the only one who would complain about this but the "rule" of not holding a table until you have your tray? Sorry, not sorry but If I'm standing in line ordering, or my husband is, one of us usually always holds a table! I'm spending money at your establishment, by god, I'm holding a seat! Also my husband is a heart surgery/2x stroke survivor and he can't stand very long at times, plus on occasion we have my 82 year old Mother in law with us and I REFUSE to allow her to STAND until our order is ready! Food looks amazing but that one rule may stop me from ever trying their chowder plus I think It's a bit too expensive, but its also 2019 and its Seattle, its going to be

          I live in New Jersey and for what he got I think the prices were reasonable. Well not the chowda.

          ETA: this is a tourist area, if he went to local places I bet it’d be cheaper.

                  People complaining about prices. Seattle is a big city. It's a major center of commerce and innovation... Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks... it's going to be expensive, that's a fact of life. If you go there, just plan to spend some big bucks and have fun. It's called the "Emerald City" for a reason. 😎
                  If that's too much for you, go back to small town America and enjoy your Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. 😜

                                              I used to manage a shop in the market during the 70's and 80's. We were a tobacco/cigar shop in Post alley, right across from La Coppa Pan. Both long gone. I ate breakfast at Lowell's everyday. Breakfast was 3.50 plus tip, and it was always more than I could eat. Baby Gramps used to play outside out shop every Friday and Sat. This was before street musicians needed a license and needed to schedule a time and place. After Baby Gramps would leave, a saxophonist named Arnie would play. I used to give him packs of Chesterfield cigarettes. There was a little grocery store down the main entrance and they would sell me 2 beers for 75 cents, provided I didn't care about the brand. You could buy huge slices of pizza from DeLaurentis on the corner for a dollar a slice. There was an old man that had a news stand across from Delaurentis, his name was Arnie, he owned the stand with his brother. I would get the morning paper and head straight for Lowells. You could walk right up to the counter at Starbucks. Times have changed. I took my sons down there about 2 years ago and I barely recognized the place. But I still loved it. Only difference was, I took them back to my parents house to make them dinner...…

                                                For some reason I can't edit. Newspaper mans name was Isaac, not Arnie. And I used to sell him cigars for 5 cents. He always wanted to pay something but never had much money.

The owner goes to Thailand frequently to learn new recipes and get supplies, They have the Best spicy wings ever. Pretty much every table has some.

Or the guys with backpacks selling to all of them. You didn’t show the jungles of cardboard houses and broken tents under every bridge and overpass hiding among the blackberry brambles. Or the urine soaked stairwells and bathrooms full of needles.
                                                                                          You can’t have a true food experience without feeling guilty for spending $25 for breakfast or having to explain to your kids why so many people live like trolls under bridges as you walk them to the pier to get chowder and fries at Ivers.
