The event takes place in the Market's North Arcade and on Pike Place, the street that runs through the Market. The following impacts will take place:

Construction Impacts on Western Avenue

Beginning in June 2015, Pike Place Market is expanding with the MarketFront, a mixed-use project located on Western Avenue, to the west of the traditional Market. The Market is open for business and will not be greatly impacted by the MarketFront construction. 

Construction impacts are as follows:

The west sidewalk and parking lane, as well as the existing southbound drive lane, will be closed for construction through November 2016. A new southbound traffic lane will be established and maintained for the duration of the project. For more information, please see the Sellen Construction project website for up to date construction news and updates: http://www.sellen.com/marketfront/
