Sunset events at
SEATTLE - One of downtown's best viewpoints of Puget Sound
and the Olympic Mountains now gives downtown workers and residents a reason to
delay heading home from work.
On the first Thursday of June, July and August, the Pike
Place Market will host a special evening market called Sunset Thursdays at Pike
Place. It will take place 5 to 9 p.m. on June 2, July 7 and August 4.
Planned to complement Pioneer Square's First Thursdays, the
Pike Place Market's Sunset Thursday will feature art, as well as food.
"The evening market will see artists bringing new items they don't usually
sell at the Market," said Marlene Allen, Market Master for the Pike Place
Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA).
"It will also be an opportunity for artists to sell
some of their larger works because they can have more selling space,"
In addition to being a showcase for creativity, shoppers
will also be able to take home fresh vegetables and fruits from Market farmers.
Hazelnuts, flavored almonds, jams, dried meats and fruits will be among what's
offered in June. First-of-the-season strawberries will be available from
Chasengnou Farm, and Magana Farm may bring their first zucchinis. Alvarez Farm
will have their popular peanut roaster and a variety of pepper products.
It's the first time in many years that customers will be
able to shop the Pike Place Market during evening hours.
