The new expansion also requires facial coverings in all common spaces, such as elevators, hallways and shared spaces in apartment buildings, university housing and hotels, as well as congregate setting such as nursing homes.

While we know our Market businesses have been practicing safe facial coverings method we’ve included a graphic to remind your employees and customers about proper facial covering practices.

Your safety is our top priority. We encourage all businesses, along with the PDA, to politely remind their neighbors and shoppers of Washington's mask requirements. If you are in need of additional masks please reach out to your Commercial Property Manager, Market Master or email


  • NO PARKING on Pike Place: Market businesses and their employees should not park on Pike Place. Warnings and tickets will be issued starting June 22 to repeat offenders. If we are to succeed in reopening the entire Market, customer parking will be critical.  Please help us keep parking available for the Market shoppers.
  • NEW Early Bird Rate: Effective Saturday June 13, our Pike Place Market Garage Early Bird rate has temporarily changed to $10. You must enter by 9:30am and exit by 9:00pm.
