The Ventures Marketplace

Business incubator & retail store

See our mission in action & support local entrepreneurs

The Ventures Marketplace is an eclectic gift shop in the heart of Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market featuring jewelry, art, body care products, housewares, food pantry, and more. We carry hundreds of unique gifts at affordable prices, handcrafted by more than 75 talented local artists and craftspeople—all Ventures entrepreneurs—who are working to improve their lives through small business ownership.

The Ventures Marketplace and the Marketplace Online serve as a business incubator that provides a nurturing environment filled with training, coaching, and hands-on learning opportunities to help small business launch and grow. Since we opened in 2011, we’ve helped our vendors take home over $1,104,241 in revenue.

Visit the Ventures Marketplace for unique gifts and items for your home or office.
