The new MarketFront, the first extension of the historic Pike Place Market in 40 years, is now open to the public. The public plazas and seating have opened early to allow visitors to explore the new spaces perched above Elliott Bay and the Seattle Waterfront with dynamic views from Mount Rainier to the Olympic Range. The official grand opening event will be on June 29.
Last Thursday, we attended the Fete le Market, a fun and festive event to thank donors at MarketFront. The event featured food from Market chefs, live music, a special previewing of the MarketFront, and pictures with Billie the Piggybank who calls the new vendor shelter home.
