Pike Place Market Foundation

Addressing Our Community

Dear Supporters,

This year has been an incredible year of growth and opportunity here at Pike Place Market. You've no-doubt witnessed this growth with construction in full-swing on the new MarketFront. In order to achieve this historic vision for the Market, one that dates back to the 1970s, it takes the support of everyone in our community from the City of Seattle to Washington State, local residents and thriving businesses who invest in growing the Market we all love.

To-date, the Pike Place Market Foundation has raised $5.6 Million in philanthropic contributions to complete the new MarketFront, while simultaneously supporting and maintaining the vital housing and social services in the Market our community relies upon today. The new MarketFront is no exception, carrying forward our mission to help our neighbors who work, learn and live in and around the Market with more low-income housing and a Neighborhood Center.

As the No. 1 destination in the Pacific Northwest, we are proud to be one of the most diverse neighborhoods, one that provides opportunities for farmers and small businesses, as well as housing, healthcare, healthy food, childcare and a community of support to our most vulnerable neighbors. As you will learn in this report, we continue to grow our ability to serve the needs of our Market community. We could not do this without your generosity.

You, our loyal donors and volunteers, are an important part of what makes this community so great. You bring passion and commitment to keeping the heart of our city great. We thank you for supporting Seattle's greatest civic asset - a historic Market bustling with diverse goods and people who, together, create a thriving, caring community!

Heritage House at the Market

Heritage House, Pike Place Market's assisted living facility for seniors, welcomed a new Executive Director this year, Jennifer Hermann. "When I walked into Heritage House, met the residents and saw such a vibrant community, I just fell in love," says Jennifer. Heritage House's comprehensive program helps residents feel connected with family, friends, and the world around them. This year, a brand new van enabled more residents enjoy outings and new experiences. "Whether it is a day at the zoo or shopping at Fred Meyer, our residents really appreciate the chance to go out into the community," says Jennifer. Learn more about Heritage House.

Pike Market Food Bank

2015 has been a busy year for the Pike Market Food Bank. "Each week, we serve a little over 300 people in the food bank and deliver groceries to 87 homebound seniors," says Brian Anderson, Food Bank Manager. "We're fortunate that so many Pike Place Market vendors and businesses donate fresh produce for our customers, which means we don't ever turn anyone away."

When customers visit the food bank, Brian and his staff make sure they leave with more than a healthy bag of groceries. "We also provide care," says Brian. "We try very hard to make sure everyone who visits feels welcome, valued, and that this is their Food Bank." Learn more about Pike Market Food Bank.

Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market

Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market provides a range of primary health care services for some of our most vulnerable neighbors. "Many of our patients are homeless and feel invisible," says clinic manager Zandra Lee. "When they come to our clinic, they feel respected, valued, and that this is their home in many ways."

This year, the clinic served over 4,800 patients, more than half whom are homeless. The Clinic's Housing Health Outreach (HHOT) Team expanded outreach and helped more than 700 chronically homeless adults remain housed. Learn more about Neighborcare Health.

Food Access Program

This year, more of our neighbors had access to healthy, local produce because of the Food Access Program. Over 4,300 shoppers purchased fresh Market produce using EBT (food stamp) and matching funds, an increase over the prior year.

In addition to the summer-long EBT match program, Market shoppers also had a new opportunity: for the first time, they could redeem food stamps at produce stands during the winter months too. "The winter matching program is a big victory for us," says Dana Gould, Food Access Program Coordinator. "This will ensure our customers can maintain a healthy diet all year long." Learn more about the Food Access Program.

Pike Market Childcare and Preschool

A major accomplishment in 2015 for Pike Market Childcare and Preschool was the award of a three-year, $75,000 grant from Satterberg Foundation for anti-bias education. "This is an opportunity of a lifetime," says Executive Director Ilene Stark. "Over the next three years, we will work closely will parents to figure out how we can best support a child's positive cultural self-identity and learning about others."

About 70% of children received tuition assistance last year. Classroom and staff diversity is top priority at the Preschool, and demonstrates their commitment to providing high-quality education to families of all income levels. Learn more about Pike Market Childcare and Preschool.

Pike Market Senior Center

One of Pike Market Senior Center's most satisfying achievements in 2015 was moving 35 homeless seniors into permanent housing. "This might not sound like an impressive number," says Development staff Mason Lowe. "But if you were one of these seniors, the difference would be life-changing. Nearly all of these seniors had been homeless for years, some decades."

The Senior Center also opened a new activities space, and now hosts more community-building classes such as exercise, yoga, and even ballroom dancing for Senior Center members. Says Lowe, "There are a lot of things you can find at the Senior Center, but one of the most important is friendship and community." Read more about Pike Market Senior Center.

Award-winning Chowder Gives Back To Market Community

Larry Mellum has been making seafood chowder in the Pacific Northwest since 1991. When he decided to take his beloved recipe to Rhode Island's Great Chowder Cook-off in 2000, the odds of winning didn't look likely. In 20 years, no restaurant outside New England had ever won first place. Nevertheless, his now-famous chowder went on to win first place three years in a row. It was then that Larry decided to expand his business beyond a small cafe in West Seattle so Pike Place Chowder first opened its doors in Post Alley in 2003.

"Every day I can select from the freshest produce and fish for my chowders, and so we continue to perfect our recipes. I can't imagine working anywhere else than at Pike Place Market!" Pike Place Chowder's combination of award-winning dishes, quality ingredients, and dedicated staff have made it one of the most popular restaurants in the Market. "Every morning, we will have a line of people stretching out the door," says Larry. "It's a humbling experience to see that."

Larry has been an avid supporter of The Market Foundation since 2004, and most recently, Larry now donates a portion of his famous chowder sales to support our community too. "The Market Foundation does such important work for vulnerable seniors and others in the Market. It's incredibly gratifying to give right back to the neighborhood that has given so much to me and my business." Thank you, Larry, for supporting a thriving, caring community at Pike Place Market.

Realizing a new dream for our Market

After retiring from a successful career with Starbucks Coffee, Don Gordon was looking for opportunities to donate his skills. A former Starbucks colleague and a member of our board, Marie Gill, suggested that Don volunteer at Pike Place Market. The timing was perfect: "When I first met Lillian [The Market Foundation's Executive Director], she was looking for help planning The Neighborhood Center that will be part of the new MarketFront. With my background in building development and project management, it was a great fit."

Don sees The Neighborhood Center as a unique opportunity for the Market. "The look and feel will be very welcoming - a wonderful place for collaboration and community support."

Ask Don why he loves volunteering with The Market Foundation, and his big smile will say it all: "Being a volunteer on this project is hugely satisfying. I get to work with a great group of people and I'm honored to be part of this exciting development for Pike Place Market."

To date, Don has dedicated nearly 300 hours of support, insight, and planning to The Neighborhood Center. Thank you, Don, for helping us expand social services at Pike Place Market!

A Family Legacy At Pike Place Market

When DeeAnn and Dave Burman moved downtown over a decade ago, they were fortunate enough to move just two blocks from Pike Place Market. "The Market is such a special place," says DeeAnn. "When we first started frequenting the Market, the merchants quickly started to recognize us. And ever since, they talk to us as neighbors. We feel part of this community."

Since DeeAnn joined our Board of Directors in 2007, she and Dave have been champion supporters for Pike Place Market. DeeAnn has led successful committees, fundraisers, events and more, while Dave engaged his law firm, Perkins Coie, and other colleagues in the field.

More recently, DeeAnn has been deeply involved with the Pike Up! campaign to build the new MarketFront. "It has been very fun and exciting to work on the MarketFront. I know this will be a very important addition to our community, and to our city as a whole."

Although recently "retired" from our Board, DeeAnn continues to inspire others to get involved. "As downtown residents, the Market is our neighborhood - it's the heart and soul of the city. We do everything we can to ensure it continues to thrive for our grandchildren, and their grandchildren too." Thank you, DeeAnn and David, for nearly a decade of ongoing support for our community!

Growing More Market To Love

Pike Place Market Foundation

Construction of the new Pike Place MarketFront continues on schedule with Grand Opening planned for summer 2017. We are grateful to 2,909 Pike Up! supporters who, as of August 2016, have donated over $5.6M to help complete this historic project. We still need $3 Million in community support to complete this project. Discover how you can be part of the legacy at

This year, we also continued comprehensive planning for the MarketFront's Neighborhood Center. Input from the Market community on programming activities and physical design of the new space has helped us define a plan that comprises the existing needs of our community, and adds flexibility to discover and address emerging needs.

This feedback process has enabled us to establish and nurture relationships with local service providers and other neighborhood-based committees in an effort to encourage partnerships, expand capacity, and reduce duplication of services. The aim of the Pike Place Market Neighborhood Center will be to serve as a hub where individual community members, groups, and organizations can connect with one another in an inclusive, welcoming, and informational place that builds community and fosters sustained support.
