Commercial Filming

Thank you for your interest in doing a film or photography shoot at Pike Place Market. The Pike Place Market is a working market, which means that to the greatest extent possible, filming must not interfere with Market business, pedestrian or vehicle traffic, or the public’s enjoyment of the Market. Any filming or photography for anything other than personal use with a handheld camera must be approved and permitted by the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority.

Please note that applications require at least 10 business days in advance of requested filming date, and longer for large projects. Filming is not permitted on Fridays, weekends, or holiday weeks due to crowded conditions and the impact on Market businesses. (Due to a large volume of film requests, we are now accepting only applications for film/photo shoots August 14, 2017 or later.)

To submit a request, please review our guidelines and complete a Commercial Film & Photography Application.
