Do you have tickets for Friday’s Sunset Supper yet? This annual party raises critical funds for the Market’s social services agencies – AND it’s a ton of fun, with 90 restaurants, wineries, breweries, and distilleries sampling their goods. Ticket information can be found here.
We wanted to let you know about a few changes at the Market on Friday as we set up for the big event. At 10 a.m., the First & Pike entrance will be closed to vehicles. We
suggest driving directly to our parking garage entrance at 1531 Western Avenue. Pedestrian access on the cobblestone street Pike Place will be limited while large tents and a stage are set up. Sidewalks on the west side of Pike Place will remain open until 6 p.m.
Craftspeople and farmers will close early for the event at 3:30 pm, and the North Arcade will be closed to shoppers at that time. At 6 pm, access to the North Arcade, the ramp to the Lower Levels, and Pike Place (the cobblestone street running through the Market) will be closed from Pine Street to Virginia Street, including sidewalk access in these blocks, and remain closed until after the event. During this time, pedestrians may enter the Market from the north end by walking uphill on Virginia to Post Alley or to First Avenue. Turn right and walk south to enter the Market.
Thanks for your patience, and hope to see you at Sunset Supper on Friday!
