Businesses in Seattle have been struggling since the pandemic began in March. Unfortunately, Pike Place Market has been hit especially hard, as the produce stands, bakeries, restaurants, and other vendors here rely heavily on tourism that simply doesn’t exist right now.
We wanted to take a look around to see how the market is doing. From seasonal vegetables being purchased at the farm stands to masked customers lining up for pork hum bao at Mee Sum, it was great to see locals supporting their favorite vendors. As you think about how to spend your next free afternoon, consider doing the same and grabbing takeout from this iconic Seattle landmark.
