Holidays at Pike Place Market

Finding Home in Pike Place Market

As the sun sets on the Year of the Pig, we reflect on the meaning of Golden Pearl, the beautiful art pig who traveled the region to celebrate the Lunar New Year with our Chinese partners. She’s now found her home at Pike Place Market. Golden Pearl symbolizes our values of gratitude, collaboration, respect and optimism.

Most importantly, she represents our value of inclusion. Pike Place Market has always been a welcoming place for people to discover their sense of home. It’s a wide array of merchants, farmers, residents, shoppers and neighbors who make up a community unlike any other.

The Market is also home to low-income housing, a food bank, medical clinic, senior center, preschool and community center that will impact the lives of more than 20,000 of our downtown neighbors this year. The delicate balance of preserving a historic district and nurturing a thriving community of low-income residents, workers and neighbors only thrives with your love, support and investment.

Please give generously this holiday season and help others find their home at Pike Place Market.
