Lunchtime Tunes with Market Buskers

Posted August 3, 2020

Lunchtime Tunes with Pike Place market Buskers

Take an hour break and rejuvenate with Pike Place Market. Every Wednesday in August we will be showcasing a new Market busker to entertain you through your mid-week lunch break.

Join us to support local music and our amazing Market Buskers during this time of no live music. Plus, we could all use a little mid-week rejuvenation and this is a perfect opportunity to recharge, relax and enjoy that Market sound we’ve all missed from the comfort of your work-from-home desk.

So grab your lunch at the Market (tip: Pick-up and order ahead – click here. Delivery options – click here) or make a delicious Market lunch with your fresh local ingredients then tune in every Wednesday on the Market's Facebook page from 12pm to 1pm.

Buskers are accepting tips through Venmo. A couple of dollars goes a long way for these artists. If you want to send the busker a tip just shoot them a Venmo.


August Lineup

August 5th - Jonny Hahn (piano)

If you have ever been to the Market chances are you have seen Jonny Hahn playing his piano on Pine Street. Jonny is one of the Market’s oldest buskers and is an icon for the Market. It felt only natural for Jonny to kick off our series. So sit back, grab some food and enjoy. Venmo: @Jonny-Hahn

August 8th - Carly Ann Calbero and Jeannie Rak
