Back in their early advocacy days they fought off the bulldozers and a city-wide plan to demolish the Market. Now, 50 years later, they continue their citizen-advocacy work with a new initiative to preserve the historic artwork found around every nook and cranny in the Market.

The Pike Place Market Foundation is proud to support the Friends new initiative with a grant of $3,000. Learn more about the Friends of the Market: http://friendsofthemarket.net/index.html
