During each Market Ghost Tour, participants journey through the history of the Pike Place Market—the site of the city's first mortuary, an old graveyard, and a former brothel. Reportedly voted the most haunted location in the Northwest, the market reveals its history through the unscripted stories of the Market Ghost Tour guides. Walkers should wear comfortable shoes and be ready to handle the area's uneven cobblestone streets. Click here for more information.
Market Ghost Tour
Paranormal activities are commonplace for Market Ghost Tour founder Mercedes Yaeger. She grew up with the ghost stories of her father, who spooked locals with tales on Halloween nights in Pike Place Market. Since then, Mercedes has self-published a book, Market Ghost Stories, compiled from exhaustive research of municipal archives, newspaper accounts, and freeze-frame analysis of Scooby-Doo archives. She spins many of those yarns on excursions with Market Ghost Tour, which the Seattle Post-Intelligencer named “one of Seattle’s best and weirdest attractions.” Mercedes and her guides lead guests on year-round exterior tours. The 75-minute Market Ghost Tour treks past the 9-acre district’s mortuaries, graveyards, and brothels as visitors hear frightening historical tales.
