Updated: Aug 16, 2022
Seattle's Pike Place Market opened August 1907 because prior to this date middlemen purchased from farmers at unfair low prices and overpriced goods to resell to Seattle citizens. A city councilman Thomas Reville passed an ordinance allowing farmers to resell their goods on Pike Street. #PikePlaceMarket #ThoughtfulChefTours #SettleTours #WhatToDoInSeattle
