Pike Place Market is proud to support 200+ women-owned independent businesses!

We’re celebrating Women’s History Month this March! For 115 years, the Market has been a thriving center for small businesses of all creative disciplines to sell their merchandise. Few have shown its success better than the strong majority of successful women-owned enterprises that make up Pike Place Market’s commercial shops, crafters and farmers. 

These businesses range from cuisines of local and international origins, handcrafted jewelry and quality apparel, elegant art, and so much more. Their contributions and positive impact on the Market community are immeasurable, but their steadfast growth and presence speaks for itself. 

By the numbers

A third of Pike Place Market businesses are fully owned and/or operated by a woman and nearly half of the businesses are fully owned or co-owned by women! The city of Seattle only has about 30% of businesses designated as women-run.

The Market is proud to continue uplifting its diverse community of women-owned businesses, which are made up of long-time locals, multi-generational immigrant families, and young aspiring entrepreneurs, among many others.

More than 200 successful women-owned businesses both under 2 years and those well-established operate within the Market family. Find a full list of women-owned and operated businesses to support at Pike Place Market below.
