Small Business Recovery Program Details

Pike Place Market Foundation

In order to address the significant impact COVID-19 has had on the Pike Place Market community, the Pike Place Market Foundation is  launching a Small Business Recovery Fund to address the most-pressing needs of our merchant community.

The new Pike Place Market Small Business Recovery Fund will provide quick, flexible and critical gap funding to help bring small businesses back to operating in the Market. Email marketcommons@pikeplacemarket.org or call and leave a message at 206-774-5315 and we will return your call.

The Market Foundation developed this new Small Business Recovery Fund in partnership with the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA) and with input from the Market’s small businesses. This fund will roll out in phases to support a variety of businesses operating within the Market Historic District.
