Visit the Market on January 27 for a special local celebration as a kick-off to Local Celebration Month in February

On Saturday, January 27, Pike Place Market will honor and express heartfelt appreciation to the community that keeps its heart beating – the locals who consistently support local businesses, indulge in local flavors, and contribute to the vibrant Market community. The day’s festivities, taking place from 11:00am to 4:00pm, include live music and an exclusive shopping offer as a token of thanks.

As a part of the Local Appreciation Day festivities, Market shoppers are in for a treat with live busker music that promises to add an extra layer of vibrancy to the atmosphere.

One of the highlights of Local Appreciation Day is the Special Shopping Offer available to those who spend $50 or more at any Pike Place Market business. In return for their support, shoppers will receive a limited-edition Pike Place Market Mug, a cherished keepsake to commemorate the day. Additionally, locals who present their Washington State ID will receive the Pike Place Market Local Coupon Book, packed with exclusive coupons from various Market businesses – a thank you gesture that extends beyond the day’s festivities.

For those making multiple stops at various Market businesses, combined receipts totaling $50 or more are accepted. Shoppers are encouraged to return their receipts to the “Event Information” tent by 4:00pm on January 27 to claim these exclusive thank you gifts.

Mary Bacarella, Executive Director at Pike Place Market, shared their excitement, stating, “Local Appreciation Day is our way of expressing gratitude to the amazing locals who make Pike Place Market the vibrant hub it is. We are thrilled to kick off this special day, and it serves as the perfect introduction to our month-long Local Celebration in February.”

As a teaser for the coming month, Pike Place Market will host a month-long celebration in February dedicated exclusively to locals. The Market promises exciting activations and chances to win major prizes all month long.

Join Pike Place Market on January 27, 2024, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, as we extend our heartfelt thanks to the locals who make Pike Place Market a thriving and beloved community.
