Cooking with Class

Pike Place Market Foundation

We deeply missed seeing everyone Cooking with Class at Salty’s on Alki, which we could not held in 2020 due to the lasting impacts of the pandemic. Over the past 19 years that Founder Connie Adams has worked with us to produce this event, more than one million dollars was raised to support low-income seniors in our Market community. We are so grateful for the extraordinary impact that this event has had on so many people!

For the last six years that we have partnered with Connie, The Pike Place Market Foundation has come to rely on this event for around $100,000 to support the Market’s senior community members.  With the loss of this important fundraiser, we’re faced with the reality that the programs and services it provided may diminish.

To help cover the immediate needs of our seniors, we have set a goal of $50,000 in an effort to close the gap while we seek other sources of support. Will you join us to keep our Market seniors safe, supported, and housed by contributing today towards this goal?


 As we emerge into a new normal, we know that more must be done to ensure the Market we love continues to thrive.  Thank you for your shared investment in the health and vibrancy of Pike Place Market. With your renewed commitment today, we can ensure that this Market stands strong – now and for generations to come.

Stay tuned for updates on Cooking with Class 2022 from Connie Adams!
