Mission + History

Pike Place Market Foundation

Pike Place Market Foundation supports the heart and soul of the Market – its people.

By helping our neighbors who work, learn and live in and around the Market, the Foundation helps the Market we love remain a thriving, caring community.

Established in 1982, The Market Foundation has granted more than $26 Million to provide housing, healthcare, healthy food, childcare and a community of support to our most vulnerable neighbors. Over the past 34 years, The Market Foundation has contributed to a neighborhood model that allows a diverse community to live and thrive here at Pike Place Market.
