Pike Place Market recently reached a quarter million Facebook followers! We were thrilled to learn that “like” #250,000 came from Nicki Vannatter, an elementary school teacher in Kent, WA.

To celebrate this fun milestone, we surprised Mrs. Vannatter’s 4th grade class with a visit from Scott Davies, Pike Place Market Education and Outreach Programs Manager.

Scott gave a presentation to the class about Pike Place Market, and presented Mrs. Vannatter with a tote bag full of Market goodies, including a personalized Market Charm to hang on the new MarketFront and a bouquet of 25 fresh cut tulips (which turned out to be her favorite flower and favorite color!).


The students loved learning about the Market's history and tasting some yummy treats like honey straws from Sunny Honey and mini donuts from Daily Dozen

Since it was created in 1992, the Education Program has taught more than 25,000 Seattle elementary school students about Pike Place Market's original farmers market, its unique history and wide array of businesses.
