Making magic with wire

Posted May 31, 2013

Making magic with wire - Seattle filmmaker Note Suwanchote created this short about his parents, who sell their works in the Pike Place Market crafts market. The Critics Choice award winner from MOHAI (the Museum of History and Industry) for the “History Is” film competition, the short will be shown at the Seattle International Film Festival. Congrats to Note!

Prized for their rich oil content—healthy oil, that is—the wait for Copper River Salmon is over.

All four of the Market's fish markets now have fresh Copper River Salmon. These aquatic marathoners travel some 300 miles in the nation's 10th largest river in intense conditions that build their stores of omega-3 fatty acids. This results in a rich flavor that diners around the world cherish.

Fridays-Sundays, 9 am - 5 pm

June is swiftly approaching and with the longer days comes the anticipation of the opening of the farmers market on the cobblestone street of Pike Place. Celebrate the first day and weekend of summer with us at the farmers market opening weekend, June 21-23. Shop for fresh, local strawberries, cherries and sugar snap peas for summer salads or a perfect afternoon snack. Yum!

A harem of seals stopped by the Market yesterday! Thank you to everyone who visited Rachel the Piggy Bank for #GiveBIG to the PIG! Seattle gave 76 gifts totaling $14,403.87 to help out our Pike Place Market community. 



"The Market is yours. I dedicate it to you and may it prove of benefit to you and your children. It is for you to protect, defend, and uphold and it is for you to see that those who occupy it treat you fairly. … This is one of the greatest days in the history of Seattle." —Seattle City Councilman Thomas Revelle, 1907
