Overview
Experience the food and culture at one of Seattle’s most famous landmarks, Pike Place Market, on this 2-hour, chef-guided food tour. See where chef’s shop and locals hang out. Enjoy diverse tastings at nearly a dozen different stops — places like Beecher's ‘World's Best’ Mac and Cheese, Local Color coffee shop, Britt's Pickles, Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt and more. Feel like a market insider on this behind-the-scenes adventure to savor the flavors, as well as the sights and sounds, of this historic attraction.
What to Expect
This 2-hour food tour begins with the chef/guide's introduction to Pike Place Market. Learn about how the market got started and why it's so important to both chefs and local residents alike.

The tasting tour begins at Beecher's ‘World's Best’ Mac and Cheese. Learn about the cheese-making process first-hand, then try some Fair Trade coffee and all-natural doughnuts at Local Color.

Then it's on to Pike Place Chowder to taste award winning chowder; avoiding the line that wraps around the building. At Britt's Pickles, discuss their premium products and the benefits of using lactose fermentation. Elsewhere, try Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt; another chef-made tasting using MarketSpice's tea or spices; Uli's Famous Sausage and their authentic German sausage; and the Pike Place Fish Market's prized wild King Salmon Fillet. Then the tastings finish with some of the purest direct-trade dark chocolate at indi chocolate. That's 10 total stops with two chef-made tastings.

Though many tourists are attracted to the famous Pike Place Market every year, local chefs also selectively choose their seasonal produce and proteins daily from the market. This tour gives provides a taste of the vendors that supply the best chefs in town with their organic produce and sustainable seafood.

I could not recommend this tour any more highly! We had previously visited Pike Place Market but our tour guide Eric absolutely brought it to life. A chef himself, he clearly knew the best food purveyors in the market and took us, it seems, to...More

I felt like sitting was not really an option. It's not that much walking but very few sitting opportunities.
