The Pike Place MarketFront Expansion
For the first time in 40 years, Pike Place Market expanded with the opening of its new “MarketFront.” A site built for Market producers in the early 20th century, the expansion reclaims the site for farmers and producers, and provides a dynamic public plaza with views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. True to the Market’s charter, the expansion includes low-income housing and a neighborhood center with additional social services for the Market community.
On June 29th, 2017 Pike Place Market celebrated the much anticipated opening of the new MarketFront! We invited all of Seattle to join us for Grand Opening, to celebrate this historical moment. Thousands of people made the trek downtown and enjoyed a day of great views, awesome music, and fun activities.
