Pike Place Fish has been entertaining Seattle and selling high quality seafood since 1965. Operating by the successful philosophy that conducting world-class business would make them world famous someday, people have been flocking to this open air fish stand from all over the globe to taste Pike Place salmon and watch the well-known fishmongers throwing "flying fish" for decades.
Pike Place Fish started as a small fish stand in the market during the mid-twentieth century. It wasn't until employee John Yokoyama purchased the stand and grew it into the legendary supplier of seafood it is today. Watching these exuberant fishmongers throwing Pike Place salmon under the famous Pike Place Market sign is a must-see for any visitor to Seattle. The public is encouraged to join in the fun and interact with the guys behind the counter.
In addition to an enjoyable experience, Pike Place Fish offers exceptional quality seafood. The company prides themselves on excellent customer service, and they will even ship your purchase anywhere in the world. Indulge in fresh, white fish, crab, shellfish, or the famous Pike Place salmon, direct from the waters of Alaska. Pike Place Fish will cut your seafood to order, or you can pick up a jar of their own seasoning blend and tartar sauce to take home with you. Pike Place Fish's books about their inspiring beginnings and apparel with the company logo also make excellent travel souvenirs from a Seattle vacation.
In addition to this famous fish stand, Pike Place Market also offers City Fish, Jack's Fish Spot and Pure Food Fish Market to buy fresh seafood. Try the fish and chips and chowder also served at Jack's Fish Spot. Pure Food Fish Market prides themselves on excellent smoked salmon.
