Celebrate Black-owned businesses at Pike Place Market

Seattle's iconic Pike Place Market has a wide variety of goods to peruse, from fresh foods and flowers to unique art, crafts, jewelry and special trinkets to commemorate your visit. The vendors at Pike Place are as diverse and remarkable as the unique items found inside. As we honor Black History Month, here are several Black-owned businesses at Pike Place you can go support today!

Farm Fresh Foods

Baby Chavs

Baby Chavs is an urban farm growing nutrient-dense microgreens near Tacoma, Washington. When the Chavarria Family started, they found they were selling many of their microgreens to chefs and the wealthy. Their mission is to change this perception by making microgreens more approachable and versatile to everyone. Baby Chavs joined Pike Place Market’s PIKE BOX CSA program in 2022.

Herban Farm

Ras Levi Peynado started Herban Farm in 2012, after a trip to Jamaica and a yearning to follow in his parents’ footsteps. Ras grows a variety of herbs and hot peppers on an urban farm in north Seattle. His business mission is to make cooking fun by enhancing the flavors of food with his hot pepper and flavorful herb products.

Pies Boards & Books

Pies Boards & Books by Nadia Moseley is the newest business to join Pike Place Market’s Artisan & Prepared Foods Program. Find Nadia’s delicious personal-sized pies in honey, apple and sweet potato. She sets up on Sundays from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on the MarketFront. Come early! Nadia does sell out.

Lands of Origin

Chef Meeraf Mamo is the flavor maker behind the Ethiopian-inspired desserts, lentils, and spices kits offered at Lands of Origin. The tantalizing flavors will have you coming back again and again.
