Its 9 acre historic district attracts 10 million visitors annually, making it one of Washington State's most frequently visited destinations.

Mission: The purpose of the Pike Place Market’s Daystalls are to uphold the Market’s founding tradition of “Meet the Producer” by providing both farmers and craftspeople an opportunity to sell farm-produced or handmade items directly to the consumer; to provide a wide variety of farm products and handmade arts and crafts for shoppers; and to provide direct marketing opportunities for new farmers and craftspeople to pursue their livelihoods. Both farm and craft businesses are an integral part of the Market’s overall economic and social communities. Daystall management policies are intended to provide a framework for achieving these purposes; to foster an environment where individual farmers, artists and craftspeople can succeed economically; to provide equitable business opportunities; and to maintain a diverse mix of products offered for sale by producers.

Great news everyone. The Market Maintenance Dept. was able to get the
Stewart House elevator up and running. Yahhhhh!!! A long term fix is still needed though so please be very, very careful when using it.

07/28/2011

We have touched base with Security & Maintenance & the Stewart House elevator is currently out of commission.

Maintenance’s best guess is that it will likely be out of commission for the rest of the day & are doing everything they can to get it up and running as soon as possible.

We will do our best to keep you all posted. Please pass this information on to anyone who might need it.
