ecently I acceptedan invitation to aceremony where closeriends, ater thirtyyears o marriage,were renewing theirvows. Having attended their wedding in1978, I recalled their young complexionsushed with hope or what their livestogether would create. In 2008, eyescreased with wrinkles ormed by laughterand endurance, my riends pronounced theirrenewed vows with the proound vigor thatcomes rom experience with commitment.So too, it is time or Seattle to renew itscommitment to the Pike Place Market, frstgiven in 1971 in a levy to save the Marketrom the wrecking ball. We all embracedhopes or a vital place or armers to selltheir resh tomatoes, or fsh mongers totoss wriggling salmon to eager customers.We had inhaled the usion o resh basiland salty air rising rom Elliott Bay. We weredrunk with love.
We’re delighted to unveil “PigTales,” our newly re-designednewsletter (ormerly The MarketMessenger). We hope you’ll enjoythe resh new look and ormat aswe keep you up to date on MarketFoundation activities. Look oryour next issue in September.
