Are you interested in opening a small market or mobile business to serve the Montlake neighborhood during Montlake Project construction? WSDOT wants to hear from you! The Washington State Department of Transportation is providing an opportunity for a vendor to establish and operate a small community market or mobile food service in the area of the Montlake Market in 2020.

For many years the Montlake Market provided services to the Montlake neighborhood as well as travelers through the busy interchange. With the scheduled closing of the Montlake Market at the end of 2019, WSDOT will use much of the property to complete construction work and permanent improvements related to the Montlake Project. In hopes of offering a reliable, community-focused service in place of the market, this unique opportunity is now available.
