History Collective curates conversations and storytelling about the preservation and history of Seattle neighborhoods from community members, artists, historians, business owners, and residents.
Historic Seattle is excited to present the next History Collective – “Pike Place Market Families: Generations of Resilience” – in partnership with HistoryLink, Friends of the Market, the Washington State Jewish Historical Society, and Tandemvines Media on Tuesday, September 21st!
This virtual edition of History Collective highlights the history of Pike Place Market and the stories of immigrant families who have found opportunity and community there. We are honored to include a conversation with three women behind multigenerational legacy businesses at the Market:
- Carlee Hollenbeck, Pure Food Fish Market
- Leila Rosas, Oriental Mart
- Xee Yang-Schell, Yang Flowers Farm
- Moderated by Denise Clifton (author of Tables from the Rubble, editor of Inside Pike Place Market)
Visit these businesses and more on your next visit to Pike Place Market – and take one (or both!) of the excellent tours HistoryLink created, highlighting the Market’s architecture and impressive food scene!
Be sure to follow Friends of the Market for programs and information commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Citizens’ Initiative to Keep the Market.
And don’t forget to download a copy of Inside Pike Place Market, a free digital book sharing stories from the Market’s rich 114-year history (edited by Denise)!
