To build an international food market in Seattle that empowers food entrepreneurs from immigrant and refugee communities.

MarketShare is an IRS approved 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.

In Seattle, our neighbors come from around the world and bring with them all the unique flavors of their culinary backgrounds. A single Seattle ZIP code, 98118, was recognized by the 2010 US Census as one of the most diverse in America, with at least 59 languages spoken. This level of diversity provides an amazing opportunity for intercultural exchange and dialogue, and what better way to do so than through the universal language of food.

By sharing authentic cuisines from all around the world, it is our hope that these immigrant and refugee owned food businesses become platforms that promote intercultural appreciation and understanding.
