About Seattle, WA Shopping
With a thriving public market, ethnic-enclave neighborhoods, tony shopping galleries, funky arts and crafts, and cultural diversity to spare, Seattle shopping is a wide-ranging proposition that’s sure to turn up unique finds. For the ultimate “only-in-Seattle” shopping, check out storied Pike Place Market, a historic community market with a wide selection of foods and produce, crafts, arts and antique. In Pioneer Square, one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, the renovated storefronts in historic brick buildings now sell art, music, books, home decor, antiques, jewelry, and gifts. National chain retailers are dispersed among several different shopping destinations throughout the wider metro area and downtown, such as the City Centre, Westlake Center and Pacific Place. Several of the suburbs offer interesting shopping, too. Known for its free and artistic spirit, the funky Fremont neighborhood has numerous specialty stores and a weekly Sunday market that features a variety of used and vintage goods. On the other end of the spectrum, the relatively new, ultra-upscale Shops at the Bravern in Bellevue has brought luxury retailers such as Neiman Marcus to the Northwest.
