Dating as far back as 1985, nearly 55,000 tiles were laid on the Market floor to honor donors who helped “Care for the Market” during our renovation campaigns. These donations helped repair the deteriorating Market floor in the 1980s – before the floor was replaced with the support of our community, you could literally see all the way through to the DownUnder.
After more than 30 years of carrying millions of visitors throughout the busy marketplace, some of these tiles are cracking and breaking from wear and tear on the Market. As needed, tiles are replaced with more durable flooring to improve safety and conditions in the Market. Therefore, we cannot guarantee named tiles will remain in the Market floor forever and we are unable to replace any missing tiles.
Thank you to the thousands of supporters who helped Care for the Market! Your gift lives on as a legacy in preserving the Pike Place Market and making it what it is today!
