All Together Now – Thank You!
Together, we raised $185,415 for seniors and families in Pike Place Market.
Today, Thursday, March 10 2016 at the Care for the Market Luncheon, Nick Setten of Savor Seattle Food Tours led us on a journey through Pike Place Market’s past, present, and future. And, Caspar Babypants sang his heart out to celebrate the heart and soul of our Market community!
For more than 100 years, the Market has always been about people. It’s the people who live, work, learn, shop, and protect this community that make it what it is today. Click on each photo to learn how each of these people played a role in keeping our Market a thriving, caring community.
“The beautiful thing about Pike Place Market, and the reason it has ultimately survived, is its human connection. This is the history of a community that thrives and cares TOGETHER.” –
Nick Setten, tour guide manager, Savor Seattle Food Tours
“We are exceedingly proud, because I don’t believe there is another Market in the United States that provides for human services right inside the Market.”
“I was young when I emigrated from the Philippines to Seattle and started working at Pike Place Market. Everyone was so helpful when I started working here; teaching me how to talk to customers and taking me for coffee. We work together here.”
“Pike Place Market is so important to me and my family. I’ve toured all over the world and played for tens of thousands of people, but there’s something about this Market that I keep coming back to. This is a special place and I’m honored to be part of this community!”
-Caspar Babypants, musician
