Look what we’re building together in Pike Place Market

Posted January 13, 2016

Happy New Year!

Just as the clock struck midnight in Pike Place Market on January 1, the Pike Up! campaign to expand Pike Place Market reached $4,109,541 in funds raised. All donations including 2,226 Market Charms, 151 Bronze Hoofprints, and 58 Mosaic Fish are busy at work building a new foundation for the expansion of Pike Place Market. Thank you for making this possible!


Market Charms and Bronze Hoofprints tell your stories in Pike Place Market:

When the opportunity for Pike Place Market Charms popped up, I got two immediately. I pictured my two nieces, Lucia and Coco, excitedly searching for their names among the Charms decorating the new MarketFront. One of our holiday traditions is a trip to Pike Place Market where we shop for meats, cheese, and everything else we need to build delicious holiday platters for our family. Now, this happy tradition will include Lucia and Coco taking selfies by their own Market Charm.”

“I’m excited to support the new MarketFront with my Bronze Hoofprint because the Market provides something for everyone in our community. It is a magical place where you can find fresh fruit and vegetables, a senior center and senior housing, preschool, cooking classes, or something as simple as a beautiful place to enjoy Seattle. I’ve loved Pike Place Market since I first visited it on a 2nd grade field trip. It really is the heart of our city.”
