Pike Place Market Foundation

Our Staff

Sharina Black

Communications Coordinator

Background: I was born in Southern California but raised in Tacoma, WA. Both states are my home, so I consider myself a proud West Coaster. With a bachelor’s degree in Arts, Media, and Culture from the University of Washington Tacoma, and in current pursuit of an MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific Lutheran University, my vocational devotion is rooted in the intersection where arts, equity, and social justice meet. I grew up volunteering at the Tacoma Rescue Mission and working with the Tacoma Public Library in community programs. I’ve collaborated with small businesses and creative locals by working in the Seattle-Tacoma screen printing industry for nearly ten years, and most recently served as the Lead Editorial Writer for the Seattle-based arts magazine, CRÉATEUR Zine. I have always had a deep appreciation for the cultural vibrance and socioeconomic diversity that is the spirit of Pike Place Market, and I am excited to support the Pike Place community in sharing the stories that keep the Market network thriving!

Why I love my job: I appreciate the localized, ground-level work that the Pike Place Market Foundation is doing. It’s the kind of place where I can see real change happening and feel assured that I’m making a progressive impact. It is a real gift of an opportunity to learn and utilize the stories of the eclectic people and businesses who make Pike Place Market what it is to help stimulate and maintain a healthy, culturally rich community.

Fun Fact: In high school I was too shy to dance in public, so I turned down a record deal with Bryant Reid (brother to big time music producer, LA Reid).

Ashley Mouldon

Corporate Engagement Specialist

“You could get lost in the Market, but that is the best way to discover the secret, and not-so-secret spaces, places and people. Wandering through the hallways, soaking up the energy, is my favorite type of coffee break. We are a family here: dedicated to preserving the past, enjoying the present, and looking forward to the future.”

Professional Background: Ashley, a Midwest transplant, has called Seattle home since 2012. Upon arrival to the Pacific Northwest, she joined Youth in Focus as their Program Director and later found her way to Photographic Center Northwest as their Outreach & Development Associate – all the while becoming deeply engaged with the arts and nonprofit sector. Now at the Pike Place Market Foundation, Ashley focuses on building intentional partnerships and collaborations with a shared sense of purpose to positively impact the broader community. She believes that the world is truly good and can only thrive when everyone has a seat at the table. Ashley holds an MFA in Writing and Publishing from DePaul University in Chicago.

Why I love my job? The Market is a magical ecosystem with nooks and crannies filled with treasures, stories and everything in between. I feel incredibly honored and humbled to work among the people who call this place their home, office and playground. Having the opportunity to expand our reach and resources to make a lasting impact for this community gets me excited to come to work every day. The Market is a special place, and I am thrilled to help ensure that it is here for future generations to enjoy.

Fun Fact: I am a spicy food lover and could eat any variety of Thai curry every day. I am hoping to instill this love of spice into my son, as well!

Crystal Dixon

Director of Strategic Impact

“Pike Place Market’s community is as rich and layered as its history.  For many people who live and work in the market, it’s so much more than just a neighborhood, it is a place where people can live, shop, work, and care for each other. The Pike Place Market Foundation helps to maintain and fund the diversity and sustainability of this community.”

Professional background: I have a BA and MA in International Relations and have worked for NGOs and nonprofits for nearly my whole career. Before coming to The Foundation, I worked with Boys & Girls Clubs of King County as a Unit Director and Wellspring Family Services as a Community Engagement Manager. My approach to program development focuses on creating and sustaining social service programs where community and client can merge, and anyone and everyone has a chance to make an impact.

Why I love my job:  I am thrilled to see the 40 year old plan for the completion of the Pike Place MarketFront coming to life! The Market Commons is a key piece of this expansion and I am more than excited to be able to bring my community building and project management experience to help shape this new resource for the Market community.

Fun Fact: I don’t like chocolate, ice cream, or cake. I am a good person though, I swear!

Jennifer Schooley

Donor Relations Manager

“Pike Place Market was one of the first places I visited after the move. On a mission to visit the “first” Starbucks store like any Starbucks enthusiast, I fell in love with what the Market represented in Seattle – a vibrant community of businesses, workers, residents, and shoppers.”

Professional background: Growing up in South Jersey, I pictured myself one day performing on Broadway. After graduate school, I made my home in Pittsburgh for nearly a decade, working in arts fundraising for a performing arts center that presented Broadway – close enough! At the end of Summer 2016, I decided to pick up my life and move to the Pacific Northwest.

Why I love my job: Over time, I learned just how integral the Market Foundation is to supporting the Market community and I am excited to put my nonprofit experience to use as the newest member of the Market Foundation staff. As Donor Relations Specialist, I focus on data reporting and analysis, donor communications, event support, and creating robust stewardship activities.

Fun Fact: In my spare time, I’m the Registration Manager for GeekGirlCon, an organization dedicated to amplifying and celebrating marginalized communities in their geeky pursuits. I also like to cook and bake an obnoxious amount of bad-for-you goodies.

Jessa Mae Ayunon

Donor Relations Analyst

Background: Born and raised in O’ahu, HI, I graduated from Regis University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication. My professional career in non-profit has seen me manage social media and community outreach efforts in cities such as Denver and Houston, as well as previously serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA member. I am so excited to be a part of the Market Foundation and continue to help the Market community thrive!

What I love about my job: It is amazing what Pike Place Market has to offer to our community. The continued dedication and collaboration that I’ve seen from others inspires me to continue to cultivate this amazing neighborhood! I have the opportunity to connect with individuals who want to create a positive change and I love that I can be an active member of my community.

Fun fact: Although being from Hawai’i, I don’t know how to swim!

Kathryn Horter

Market Commons Program Specialist

Background: Born and raised in Gainesville, FL I graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Forest Resources and Conservation. Not long after graduating I waved goodbye to the Sunshine State and made my way to the West Coast where my introduction to non-profit work as an AmeriCorps VISTA changed my career trajectory and brought me to the Pike Place Market Foundation.

What I love about my job: I love working in an environment where no two days are the same. One day I’m behind the computer screen compiling data for reports and the next I’m shoveling soil for the rooftop garden. I am thrilled to meaningfully contribute to a team of passionate individuals and excited to work with the incredible Market community.

Fun fact: Since moving to Seattle I’ve learned that 50 degrees is indeed not “freezing” and a good rain jacket makes all the difference. I have a new appreciation for sunny days and take full advantage of them as much as possible!

Lillian Sherman

Executive Director

“I can honestly say I have the best job in the city! Every day as I walk through the market, I’m surrounded by our mission: a neighborhood where low-income people find dignity, hope and community.

By giving to The Market Foundation YOU make stories like the ones you’ll find on our website possible.  The difference we make together is more than just a day in someone’s life, we are changing a community. Together, we create the legacy that is the Pike Place Market.”

Professional Background: I returned to The Market Foundation in 2012 after spending 13 years leading the fundraising and community relations efforts at Wellspring Family Services and FareStart.  Both organizations went through significant growth periods during my tenure including major capital campaigns. Prior to my first turn at the Market Foundation in the late ‘90’s, I created Special Events for Food Lifeline and for The Bon Marche.  I spent my formative years in McMinnville, Oregon, moving to Seattle to attend SPU where I earned a BA in Political Science & Social Work.  I also hold an MPA from Seattle University.

Fun fact! When not working or chasing children around, you will find me outside running or walking trails or swimming happily in the lake.

Nico Lee

Development & Volunteer Coordinator

Background: Originally from SW Florida, my family relocated cross country to the Seattle area in the late ‘90s and I fondly remember buying sweet pea flower bouquets from the Hmong vendors in the market. Over the years, I lived in parts of the Southwest US and British Columbia, Canada before returning home to Seattle. With a diverse professional background as a pastry chef and following many years working in CPG product development, I decided to pivot towards the nonprofit world in order to have a greater social impact within my community. Through the Nonprofit Fundraising Management certificate program at the University of Washington and an internship with DESC’s (Downtown Emergency Service Center) fund development team helping support their permanent supportive housing efforts in the King County Metro area, I’ve gained a valuable foundation in nonprofit development work. In my downtime I love listening to KEXP, volunteering with local orgs, gardening on my roof, and kayaking around the Salish Sea.

What I love about my job: I’m so excited to align my love of food and community engagement to help support our vital programs! With my background as a former pastry chef, passion for sustainable farming and nutritious food access, I see profound connections between my own journey and the Pike Place Market Foundation’s mission. I believe we all have valuable time, treasures, and talents to contribute, and I love linking people with opportunities that help the greater community thrive. As a longtime Seattle resident, I’ve always been captivated by the resonant history of Pike Place Market and absolutely love discovering all the hidden gems and meeting the fascinating characters that make up our diverse Market community.

Fun fact: I used to work seasonally at Indigenous owned fishing and eco-lodges in remote Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada. It was such a privilege to immerse myself in the magically bio-diverse archipelago while working alongside the Haida people to help share their rich cultural traditions with visitors from around the world.

Miranda Arney

Market Commons Outreach Specialist

Professional Background: I grew up in Akron, Ohio and have a bachelor’s degree from The Evergreen State College in Theatre Arts and Linguistics. Since I moved to Seattle in 2002, Pike Place Market immediately became a place I’ve felt a deep connection. I started working as a sales agent for many different Daystall artists for a few years before being granted my own permit and becoming a Daystall artist myself. During the 15 years that I have held a craft business here, I have worked to organize many community-wide fundraisers, workshops, and other neighborhood enhancing events. I have also contracted with The Pike Place Market Foundation and The PDA in recent years to connect with many business owners to help them achieve their goals, while cultivating a deep understanding of the varied needs of each individual business. I am very excited to be working with this vibrant and eclectic community full-time as The Market Commons Outreach Specialist!

Why I love my job: Pike Place Market is such an incredible community that works tirelessly to care for its own, and I have always felt honored to be a part of it.  I value deeply being able to connect with people and hear their stories from their point of view, and I love finding creative solutions to complex problems. I am very excited to be working toward strengthening the bonds of this unique community in meaningful and lasting ways.

Fun Fact: I am an avid gardener and am really good at growing carrots.

Nick Setten

Major Gifts Specialist

Professional Background: Born in Boston, MA and raised in Kirkland, WA, Nick graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in Ancient Mediterranean History. He was excited to put that historical background to work as a tour guide in the Market starting in 2010. Nick fell in love with the history of citizen engagement and the warmth of this community, and as a concierge for Visit Seattle was thrilled to share this with tourists and locals alike. A self-proclaimed Market history nerd, Nick currently serves on the board for the Friends of the Market, as well as the Market Constituency and the Market PDA Council. Nick is proud to bring his passion for the Market, its people and its stories, to the Market Foundation to help amplify the light of the Soul of the Seattle.

Why do I love my job? Pike Place Market is such a unique neighborhood, and without a doubt the crown jewel of Seattle. Few neighborhoods in this young city provide such a wonderfully accessible opportunity to engage in the living history of this place. There truly is something for everyone here, and Nick revels in shining a spotlight on the plethora of ways to access this treasured social ecosystem.

Fun Facts: Nick has worked in Eastern Europe as a volunteer archaeologist, was the featured speaker at the Market Foundation’s 2016 Care for the Market Luncheon, has been featured multiple times on the Pike Place Podcast and in 2017 co-produced a unique historical photography exhibition celebrating the Market’s 110th Birthday.

Patricia Gray

Director of Philanthropy & Community Relations

“More than fresh fish and produce, the Market is a model for how a diverse neighborhood stimulates a dynamic, economically viable community.”

Professional background: My passion is to empower people to make a positive impact in their community. I have worked in communications and fundraising at Wellspring Family Services, FareStart and the University of Washington Alumni Association and served on the board of ROOTS Young Adult Shelter. Prior to my nonprofit career, I was a journalist in Indiana, The Netherlands and locally for Real Change Newspaper. I have a journalism and telecommunications degree from Ball State University.

I have been working in direct human services for 5 years, first at The Urban Rest Stop and then at the Pike Market Food Bank where I served as the Operations Manager and then the Food Bank Manager.

Tiffany Hitt

Events Manager

“I’ve had a love affair with Pike Place Market my whole life, yet never knew the depths of the market community until recently.  I’m incredibly honored to work with Pike Place Market Foundation, where I not only get to plan some of the best events in the city, but also contribute to the greater good of our amazing community!”

Professional background: With a Communications degree from Washington State University (Go Cougs!), I spent most of my extensive career in advertising analytics, finance and management for Disney Interactive Media Group and Amazon.com. Then, I decided to grab the bull by the horns and steer my professional life toward what I’m truly passionate about – planning events that honor and celebrate our city with a non-profit organization that helps touch the lives of the Seattle community. I always knew I wanted to make the world a better place – I just didn’t know how!

Why do I love my job? The Pike Place Market Foundation is a powerful, caring and impactful organization full of delightful and inspiring individuals who truly want to help others.  I’m so thrilled to work with these people and have a hand in creating events here at Pike Place Market. It’s experiences like these that make life great – eating, drinking, dancing the night away in one of the coolest locations in the world, all to help our community thrive. What could be better than that!?

Fun Fact: You can also find me performing and teaching improv at Unexpected Productions, the improvisational theatre company right here at the Market Theatre at the Gum Wall. I like to think I’m changing the world for the better here too – one laugh at a time!

Velma Chaney

Market Commons Resource Manager 206-774-5315

When you invest in the people, the people will invest in you. The Market is dedicated to helping the community through the service agencies supported by The Market Foundation, which in turn, motivates the members of the community to give back to such a thriving and wonderful cause.

Professional Bio: I graduated from Seattle Central with an Associates of Arts Degree in Social and Human Services, and I received my certificate in Child and Family Services. Most recently I interned at Wellspring Family Services to bring awareness to homelessness, provide resources, and ensure some of the basic needs of families were met.

Why I love my job: I am a survivor of homelessness. Through this difficult time in my life I learned what true strength is and how to fight for what I believe in and the things that I want out of life. I want to be there for all the individuals out there who need someone who understands them. I am passionate about helping people realize the fighter in themselves. This is what my new position as Market Commons Resource Manager encompasses and that is why I love my job.

Fun Fact: My singing group and I auditioned for Apollo when it came to Jackson. We actually won the preliminaries and the actual audition, but the group broke up because there were too many Beyonce’s. So suffice it to say, we never made it on the big screen.

She had this to say about her position on the board: My love and adoration of Pike Place Market began when I moved to Seattle in 1995.

Joel Carsley , Vulcan Inc


There is an inexplicable feeling I get when I think about Pike Place Market.  It makes me think about summer vacation with my parents, falling in love with my wife, buying my first comic book, my 13th birthday party . . . and none of these things have anything to do with the Market.  I was born and raised in Vermont and met and married Nikki in Colorado.  It’s just that indescribable feeling you get when something so important and magnificent blesses your life.  Add to this mystery sensation the fact that growing up in a town of 3,000 people, I like to think local, and the fact that the Market is my neighborhood, it seems the Foundation and I are serendipitously meant to be together.  The Foundation’s support of local artisans, farmers, seniors, children, and neighbors in need is just the right combination of awesome that I’m super excited to get behind.

Jason Hamblin , Harborstone Credit Union


Jason Hamblin lives, works and plays in Downtown Seattle. He takes his Miniature Schnauzer, “Effie” for walks all around the city — and enjoys buying fresh fruit and flowers at Pike Place Market. You can also find Jason at Old Stove Brewing enjoying an IPA with his friends.

Working with non-profits is very rewarding for him.

Why PPMF:  The Pike Place Market is not just a market that is open on the weekends or a few mornings a week, it’s alive 24/7 in some capacity. Some of my favorite times at the market is when I walk though during the busy tourist season, and its wall to wall — arm to arm with visitors. It gives our city life with an exciting atmosphere that makes us feel happy. I want to be a part of this amazing gem that I’m so lucky to have in my backyard. The market feeds those who are hungry, quenches the thirst for those who are thirsty and gives shelter to those who need a home. It would be my pleasure and honor to be a part of this amazing board and to be able to bring life to our citizens and guests in our beautiful city. My commitment to the board would to always put the needs of the Market Foundation first, to work well with other members and to protect the market’s integrity to provide a positive place for all that visit.

Skye Saylor standing next to Billie the Pig

Skye Saylor , MarninSaylor


Skye grew up in the mountains of Wyoming but was fortunate to travel all over the country throughout her childhood, including a visit to Seattle sometime in the late nineties. The city made a big impression on her, even as a kid, as the sort of place where creative pursuits are valued and rewarded. Skye made many more trips to the Emerald City during college. While the long distance relationship that facilitated those visits didn’t last, her love affair with the city did and she moved to Seattle after graduating in 2009. In 2011 she and her longtime friend, Thomas Marnin, upgraded their friendship to a romance. A few years later they started their handmade toy company, MarninSaylor, in Pike Place Market’s craft daystalls. After six years in the daystalls they were able to open a permanent brick and mortar retail store in the market. Since then they’ve continued to grow; creating new products, hiring more employees, and always finding ways to make their shop fun and engaging stop for market visitors. When Skye isn’t working to build her business you can probably find her taking a bike ride, hiking with her dog, tending to her many houseplants, or perhaps enjoying her favorite activity of all: long walks through the city with snack breaks at local eateries along the way.

Skye’s interest in the Pike Place Market Foundation stems from her time in the market’s daystall booths, where she witnessed the artists and craftspeople taking care of each other in ways big and small. While working in the daystalls she became involved as a volunteer with crafter-led events benefiting the Market Safety Net. After opening MarninSaylor’s permanent storefront and becoming more aware of the larger market community, Skye began to have a greater understanding of and appreciation for the Foundation and the ways in which it supports all sectors of the market. After nearly a decade as a market merchant, Skye recognizes the vital role that local businesses play in the holistic health of the market, and that of its workers and residents. She looks forward to helping the Foundation engage and activate the market’s retail community to further the Foundations’ goals of a thriving and egalitarian market district.

Why PPMF:Pike Place Market is more than just a market, it’s my neighborhood and community.  I can’t imagine living anywhere else and it’s because of the vibrant and diverse nature of this neighborhood.  The Pike Place Market Foundation plays a critical role in ensuring that the people who live and work in the market are supported and feel a sense of belonging to a greater community.

As a resident of the market for the last five years, I’ve seen a lot – including the much awaited opening of the new MarketFront and the frightening shutdown at the beginning of the pandemic.  It was amazing to see how the Foundation responded to support small businesses and people in financial crisis or needing social services.  Even as the market recovers, I know that these resources will still be needed and it would be an honor to contribute to the Foundation’s goal of nurturing a thriving market community.”

My hobbies have evolved over the years, but today I love exploring the different neighborhoods of greater Seattle and enjoy discovering and dining at our local restaurants. I learned to ski during the pandemic, so there’s a good chance you’ve seen me fall if you frequent Snoqualmie pass during our gray winters. In my teenage years, gaming was a huge passion that I almost pursued professionally, but today I’m just a casual gamer who plays occasionally to keep up with friends.

Emeline Jumie Garba , Oculus VR

Soon after moving to Seattle, I fell in love with Pike Place Market. I would go there almost every week for the first year I lived in here. I have a passion for community and have done a lot of volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House, various group events with Food Lifeline and Legal Voice. I am also a huge advocate for women of color to have strong interests in STEM. By daytime, I am Product Design Engineer at Oculus VR trying to connect peopleacross the globe. I love to read, travel and eat all the flavors the world has to offer.

It is through community and connecting with others that Pike Place Market Foundation and I have found each other! I am amazed by how much the Foundation contributes to keep the soul of Seattle alive for not just our visitors but for the individuals and families who need us the most. It’s definitely an iconic part of what Seattle is and what resonates with me.

Edward Gay , Washington Federal Bank

Edward Gay is a Commercial Relationship Manager with Washington Federal Bank. A graduate of Eastern Michigan University, Edward currently lives in Central District Seattle and has lived in Seattle since 2009. Outside of his professional career, Edward was the president of The Arc of King County’s board of directors for two years, and a board member and officer for nine. The Arc of King County is the regional chapter of a national organization (The Arc) that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, advocating with and for I/DD civil rights and providing community support. He is also a graduate of Leadership Tomorrow Seattle (2017), and member of The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle as well as the Association for Corporate Growth. In his spare time, Edward enjoys running, hosting, college football, and is a film aficionado.

I am incredibly excited at the prospect of joining the Pike Place Market Foundation board because I am deeply passionate about small businesses, and small business owners. The entirety of my 15 year career in banking has been spent working with small and medium sized businesses, and few things pique my interest more than hearing the story of a business, how it got here, and where it is headed. Living in Seattle and working downtown has provided me with great relationships with Market business owners. The way the foundation supports them, and businesses support each other is inspirational. The way this community is truly the hub of our city is amazing.

This past year I learned more about the work The Foundation does at the Pike Market Preschool, its Senior center, and the Heritage House. I then knew that I wanted to support its mission in the best way possible. I hope that I get the opportunity to join this board to help execute on this great mission, and help the Market grow, and sustain.”

Ashley Hayes is a Seattle University alumni, and a 20-year downtown resident and real estate investor/professional.  She and her family live at the Escala condominiums as one of the first homeowners to move into the building and there she serves as the Chairman of the Architectural Control Committee.

Professionally, Ashley manages a team of 50+ brokers at Pointe3 Real Estate and Seattle Rental Group and has represented buyers, sellers, landlords, and renters in nearly every residential building downtown – needless to say, she is within reach of an extensive and diverse network of downtown residents who also share their love and continued support for Pike Place Market.

Her passion for the Market started as a young girl and carried through her college years, where she lived at 1st and Stewart making shopping at the market a daily habit.  In later years, she found ways to support the Market through her business, and in 2021 decided to formally join the Donor Engagement Committee.  Ashley would like to continue her path in volunteering her time and exploring ways in which she can ignite the community to get more involved in supporting the Pike Place Market Foundation’s mission.

Kenneth Katzaroff , Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt

Pike Place Market is the heart and the soul of Seattle. It is a community comprised of so many diverse people, whether vendors, residents, visitors, or people like me that live just blocks away. The PPMF supports that community and works to better the lives of the people in it, or who are touched by it. The sheer impact it has, whether for low-income housing, the seniors it serves, childcare for up-and-coming entrepreneur vendors, or the desperately needed food security help, the PPMF “punches above its weight” in terms of supporting our community. I want to be part of that. I live here, I walk my dog through the market every day, I say “hi” to the vendors by name and support their businesses, and, I only want to become more involved.

I mostly grew up in Eastern Washington (Kennewick), but went to UW for my undergraduate degree. I moved down to Portland to attend law school. I moved back to Seattle in September 2019, choosing to live downtown (Harbor Steps). I now work for Schwabe Williamson & Wyatt, with my practice focused mostly on land use and real estate, although I often handle business issues for developer clients as well.

Upon returning to Seattle, almost immediately, I was interested in getting involved with the PPMF. I have very fond memories of the Market. From 2005-2015, my Grandma lived in the Newmark Tower, with a spectacular view of the Market entrance. Every time I would visit her, we would go walk through the Market, buy some produce from Frank’s or Sosio’s, or a bouquet of flowers and deliver to her door. My uncle also lived in 98 Union, so we would often walk through the Market, enjoying the people, the sights, and the smells.

Personally, she is a mama of two boys, Max and Owen, and is married to the best supporter a spouse can ask for in her husband, Bob.   

Melita Love , Community Advocate

Melita Love was raised in Maryland and educated in the East.  She graduated from The College of William & Mary and NYU Stern School of Business and began a finance career in New York City. She then moved to the Bay Area in 1988 where she raised her family and turned her focus to early childhood education, food justice and health care access.

Meanwhile, her grown children settled in Seattle, eventually drawing Melita to the PNW in 2021. Here she loves to hike, boat, visit museums and be with family while learning to love rain, short winter days and cold springs. 


 Larry Mellum , Pike Place Chowder

I grew up in Eugene OR. Graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland OR with a degree in Business & Administrative Studies and had the good fortune to have an advisor steer me in the direction of entrepreneurship.  This led me into the restaurant business, where I have been for over forty years.

‘Primarily in management and along the way VP of Operations for the Red Robin chain.  Which provided me the opportunity to travel the country and open restaurants.  When I started with RR we had four restaurants when I left we had forty.  I opened many of those.

Following that, with a business partner, opened the Charlestown St. Cafe in West Seattle in 1991–where our clam chowder recipe originated.

This led me to open Pike Place Chowder in 2003. It has been an enormous success—even from our infancy.  It also showed me what a great community Pike Place is and a community I am proud to be a part of.

Why PPMF: Pike Place is a great community.  The Pike Place Market Foundation is what makes this community whole.  It is what brings all of these uniquely different parts together and somehow…sometimes inexplicably…turns this crazy place into a community that supports one another.  I have, for years, happily supported this work.

40 years of Market Foundation History

As we celebrate 40 years, we’re looking back on our history and honoring the staff, service partners, volunteers and supporters who have helped nurture a thriving community at Pike Place Market. Check out some of the highlights from our four decades of history in the Market!
