A Century At The Pike Place Market
By 1911, the city had built arcades adjoining Frank Goodwin's private development. Farmers could set up stalls in the "dry row" inside the arcades and the "wet row" outside. Rent then was a consistent 20 cents a day, wet or dry.
The City Council created the position of "market master" to assign stalls by lottery.
