About the Pike Place Market Foundation: Pike Place Market has been known as one of the most iconic places in Seattle, but what many don’t realize is that the Pike Place Market Foundation has made the Market much more than just a tourist destination. For the past 35 years, The Market Foundation has granted more than $30 Million to provide housing, healthcare, healthy food, childcare and a community of support to those in our community who are in need, including low-income seniors, the disabled and the homeless. Since its establishment, The Market Foundation’s efforts have allowed a diverse community to live and thrive at Pike Place Market.
