Pike Place Market Pike Place Market www.pikeplacemarket.org One of the oldest continually operating markets in the country turns 103 years old this year, and what a journey it has been. It all started on August 17, 1907, when eight farmers setup shop to sell directly to the residents, to “beat the middleman” as prices soared on onions. In a couple of hours, the produce sold out. This “meet the producer philosophy has endured as the building block of the market. Over the years, more and more stalls appeared, and buildings were constructed to house the increasing number of sellers. These days, you can find fresh produce and fish, homemade jewelry and crafts, fresh cut flowers, street musicians, and more in this nine-acre market overlooking Elliott Bay. In April 1971, Starbucks Coffee opens for business in the Pike Place Market, selling high-quality coffee, dark-roasted in small batches, the European way. Starbucks does not sell or brew coffee by the cup, but sometimes offers brewed samples.
