Sue’s Hoofprint that she designed just for Larry this Valentine’s Day.

“Larry and I have been married for almost 24 years and we aren’t slowing down one bit! Larry enjoyed visiting the Pike Place Market during his childhood, and I have had many great memories with my Mom enjoying a French baguette and coffee at Le Panier. Since moving to downtown Seattle three years ago, the Pike Place Market has become the place for Larry and I to enjoy dinner or shop for special gifts, fresh seafood, and flowers. I think the best part of the Pike Place Market is all the fantastic people you encounter and the stories they tell. It’s the place to go for romantic meals, beautiful views, and even stealing a smooch with your favorite person.

This Valentine’s Day, I’m proud to stamp our love into Pike Place Market history with a Bronze Hoofprint on the new MarketFront! We also donated for two Market Charms and dedicated them to our parents, who loved the Market just as we do.”

“My husband and I have lived in Belltown three blocks from Pike Place for the last 4.5 years. Coincidentally, my work at TUNE is located near the Market as well. We just recently purchased a home outside of the city, but our years spent near the Market will forever remain in our hearts. 

My favorite memories from living near the Market are those nights when we’d cook a meal with ingredients from local farmers, we’d grab seafood from City Fish Co., sausages from Uli’s, produce from Sosio’s, wine from Pear Deli and would find the perfect flower arrangement at a different vendor every time. And, the weekends when we’d stroll to Piroshky Piroshky for breakfast and hang around until lunchtime to grab tacos at Los Agaves, always bringing our dog Smalls who gets treats from vendors along the way. 

For Valentine’s Day, I’m giving my hubby a Valentine we can enjoy every time we visit the Market together. We’re so excited to have a Market Charm for The Bigelows hanging in the new MarketFront as this place will always be a part of our lives!”

Cortney and Trevor love spending time in Pike Place Market every chance they get.
