Film and Photography Requests

All commercial filming or photography must be authorized by the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA). To submit a request for commercial filming or photography, please complete a filming application. 

Film productions that align with Pike Place Market's mission and brand values receive priority. Our mission as stated in the Market's charter is to support farmers and food retailing as well as local, independent businesses. The PDA reserves the right to approve or deny permits. 

Fees include location, security, trademark license fees and others. Location fees begin at $500. Trademark fees begin at $1,500. Productions that are news related or editorial may receive deductions of fees based on promotional value. 

Please note that applications require at least two weeks in advance of requested filming date, and longer for large projects. In more cases, filming is not permitted on Fridays, weekends or holiday weeks, due to crowded conditions and the impact on Market businesses.

To submit a request, please review our Filming Guidelines and complete a Commercial Film & Photography Application.
