TASTE News Service, July 4, 2017 - The Pike Place Market's new MarketFront, a .75-acre, 30,000-square-foot public terrace and plaza has expanded the western flank of Seattle's historic Pike Place Market.

The recent development has marked the first expansion in 40 years.

MarketFront opens panoramic views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains and creates space for 47 new day stall tables for farmers, crafters and artists, as well as 12,000-square-feet of commercial and retail space for artisan purveyors and 40 low-income housing units for seniors. The site's location on the western edge of the market will provide future access to the central waterfront development and create a vital link from the west to the market and downtown Seattle.

The site is within the 9-acre Market Historic District and was part of the Friends of the Market's original plan for Pike Place Market. The MarketFront will complete the district, created in 1971, and will connect to the main arcade via the Desimone Bridge.
