Did you know, every year more than 100 teachers participate in the Pike Place Market Education Program? With the click of a mouse, myriad educational materials about the Market's history are available in the form of lesson plans, activitiesand curriculum guide! Designed to meet Common Core standards, these resources are provided for teachers to use the Market as a subject suitable for social studies, math, art and language arts units.

Unable to take a trip to Pike Place Market? You can recreate a farmers market in your own classroom and use our interactive farm map to show students where fruits and veggies are grown all around Washington state. All lessons reinforce the Market as Seattle’s original farmers market and point to how Pike Place Market’s farm team has evolved and adapted to the changing wants and needs of consumers and farmers.
