Pike Place Market Makes Mother’s Day Shopping Even Easier

Introducing the new Pike Place Market Gift Card. The Market’s first gift card works at over 50 Market businesses and is the ultimate Mother’s day gift.

SEATTLE, WA – Pike Place Market is excited to announce the launch of the official Pike Place Market gift card, a community-based digital gift card that makes it fun and easy to shop local and support small businesses. The Pike Place Market gift card works only at Market businesses and can be used at any participating business. The gift card is now available to send electronically (download or email) on the new Pike Place Market website, PikePlaceMarket.org.

For the first time, Market fans can give the gift of the Market to friends, family, co-workers and more. Send a gift card and let them shop from retailers, restaurants, crafters, and farmers in one place — there is truly something for everyone! This is not a typical gift card. When shoppers come to the Market, they can use this card at any participating retailer.

Purchase a Pike Place Market gift card here to use at any of the participating shops in the Market. With this card, senders can write a personal message and send it to family, friends and colleagues via email, text, or physical copy. Recipients can choose to spend it at one of 50 (and growing daily) participating merchants or multiple Market businesses in the Pike Place Market. The gift card is available on mobile and is a great option for upcoming holidays, corporate events and special occasions.
