Pike Place Market Foundation

In case you missed it, here’s our Support The Market live-stream that premiered on June 18th!

Together, we hit our goal to raise over $500,000 for our efforts to help the Market community recover after the COVID-19 crisis. There’s still time to join us – donate today by texting MARKET to 91999

Support the Market! is a live-streaming, virtual event from Pike Place Market where our region will come together to bring the Market community back to health and vibrancy. 

Celebrate with music, food, and stories of the Market you love and find out how YOU can be a part of the Power of Pike Place!

Pike Place Market needs us now more than ever to Support the Market!

As a result of COVID-19, the vast majority of Market farmers, vendors and workers have suffered the immediate loss of jobs and income. The Market’s network of social services – food bank, medical clinic, senior center, resource center and preschool – are faced with unprecedented demand, as well as dramatic shifts in both revenue and operations. 

Go behind the scenes and hear directly from members of the Market community as they share inspiring stories of how they’ve adapted and the fears they are facing as the Market struggles to recover from this worldwide health and economic crisis. We also celebrate the Market’s resiliency through special live musical performances that capture the soul of the Market we all love.

Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market has survived 113 years, during wars, depressions and social disruptions, a feat that no other historic Market in the nation can claim. The Market stands today because nearly 50 years ago, a group of citizens rallied to protect, preserve and power this place — now it’s our time to help.
