Seattle’s Famous Pike Place Market Has a Few Unsavory Residents

It is said to be home to a lot of spirits.

Pike Place Market in Seattle is one of the longest continually operating public farmers markets in America, making it a prime location for lingering spirits. This video previews some of the most haunted areas in the market and the stories connected to them. 


The market has been in existence for over 115 years and one of the original wooden ramps from the early 1900s is said to be haunted by the ghosts of young stable boys.

A restaurant located within the market that frequently reports sightings is Kells Irish Pub. They take their haunting so seriously they keep a bottle of holy water behind the bar in case of any undesired supernatural activity.

Recent hauntings include a donut shop that keeps seeing a little boy who stands in the shop in a white shirt and small black vest but has no eyes, and a bar that has repeated appearances of a spectral woman late at night that only speaks Russian.

A detailed history of the market is available on their official website but there are no shortages of other mysterious paranormal sites throughout Washington state
