PRESENTATION - Pike Place MarketFront: More of the Market to Love

An expansion of Pike Place Market is currently underway! Established in 1907 to create an equitable market experience, the enduring Market is widely celebrated for its colorful and eclectic mix of vendors, food and music. Not as commonly known is the Market as a provider of important social services for low-income area residents including a food bank, day care/preschool, medical clinic and affordable housing. The MarketFront expansion enables more of what everyone loves about the Market, along with exciting new amenities and public open spaces that honor its authentic and historic character.

Join us to learn more about what’s going on at one of Seattle’s most popular and cherished landmarks from partner organizations involved. Q&A.
