Thank you for helping care for the needs of our neighbors at Pike Place Market! 

With a network of social services and housing throughout the historic district, the Market is a community that cares for seniors, families, workers and neighbors in downtown Seattle. With your help, we were able to collect and distribute over 1,000 gifts to care for our community!

Details about our next holiday gift drive in 2023 coming soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I give?

There are four different ways to get involved:

  1. Choose a gift tag from the Giving Pig, shop, and deliver gifts to DeLaurenti Food & Wine (1st Ave and Pike Street) from 9 am – 5 pm by Monday December 19th
  2. Purchase and deliver gifts using our Amazon Wish List.
  3. Donate gift cards for groceries or home goods (Target, Safeway, Fred Meyer) in the $25 -$100 range. Gift cards are an important way to give our community greater choice and the ability to independently shop for their needs.
  4. Make a donation directly to the Market Foundation, and we’ll do the shopping!
What is "The Giving Pig"?

The Giving Pig is a great way to help care for the needs of our neighbors during the holiday season. A larger-than-life fiberglass pig in the Market will be decorated with personalized tags that contain wishes from Pike Place Market seniors, preschoolers, and residents. You pick a tag, purchase the present described on the back, and return it to the Market!

Where can I find the in-Market Giving Pig?

The Giving Pig is located on the 4th floor of the Market DownUnder.

If you are standing near Rachel the Piggy Bank in the main Market arcade, go down the stairs next to Pike Place Fish to the Mezzanine Level, and then head north down the stairs to Level 4. The Giving Pig is on the north end of the floor, in between Animal Gifts and Collectibles and Hands of the World.

Where do I deliver my gift or my gift card?

Once you have purchased the gift listed on your tag, you can deliver it (unwrapped) to DeLaurenti Food & Wine Shop on 1st Ave and Pike Street (drop off seven days a week from 10 am – 4 pm).
