How We're Keeping the Market Healthy

How We're Keeping the Market Healthy

Posted August 10, 2020

At the Pike Place Market we're committed to creating a healthy environment for all our businesses and shoppers. We've taken many steps to modify the Market using the latest technologies and some tried-and true-measures.

Your safety is our top priority and we want you to feel confident as you shop your favorite businesses. To ensure the health and safety of everyone we've added additional safety measures and stepped up our cleaning of high touch areas. See all our safety measures below.
