Murals will be revealed during Pike Place Market’s 2nd annual Love in the Market on February 29th and will stay up through the end of March Can you find our artists “7 Wonders of the Market”?

Each week, we'll draw one winner from completed scavenger hunt cards.
Winners get a Market prize worth $100!
