Celebration of the New Pike Place Market this Weekend: July 1st & 2nd

The ever anticipated grand opening celebration of the new MarketFront of Pike Place Market. While the grand opening event was yesterday, there’s still time to support the project and relish in the new surroundings.

The Project

While the idea came long before, excavation began in June of 2015. Now, on June 29th, they’ve opened the new addition. While crafting this new building, project architects incorporated “simple and utilitarian materials” to ensure a “familiar Market backdrop,” while also refreshing this historic district with new commodities.

The new expansion has added 47 table spaces for farmers and merchants, a new brewery, a seafood restaurant, chocolatier, and biscuit cafe. In addition, 300 new underground parking space will relieve congestion and parking pressure.

Free to browse, this market is perfect to peruse on a nice summer day.
