Arcade Lights: Foodie Paradise After Hours at Pike Place Market

Hosted after hours in the world-famous Pike Place Market, this fabulous event is a food lovers paradise, and provides a truly unique glimpse into one of Seattle’s historic treasures.

It’s also one of our all-time favorite annual events!

Featuring gourmet goods from over 70 local artisan vendors, spanning the entire gamut from sweet to savory, cider to beer, and wine to craft liquor – Arcade Lights truly does have something for everyone.

Even better than getting to sample all the amazing food and drink, is the fact that the proceeds from this event go towards supporting the Market’s social endeavors – such as the Pike Market Senior Center and the Pike Market Food Bank.

Meaning that with each bite and sip, all event attendees are also helping to give back to the community!

We have attended this event several times, but this year, we decided to keep it simple and stick to a few of our favorites: boozy milkshakes and creamy tomato soup topped with a Beecher’s cheese straw – adult comfort food at it’s very finest!
