City of SeaTac welcomes SeaTac market
The City of SeaTac is pleased to announce the opening of SeaTac Market, a multicultural grocery store and bakery. The 10,500 square foot grocery opened to a crowd of 500 people on January 24.
“This is the only grocery store of this size to serve the nearby community,” said Jeff Robinson, economic development manager for the City. “Not only does this market allow the neighborhood to have access to fresh produce and a large selection of grocery items, but it creates a more walkable community where people don’t have to get in the car or on the bus to shop.”
Located in the SeaTac Center on 152nd and International Boulevard, the store is dedicated to a mix of food and grocery options including American, African, Asian and Mexican food, a bakery and coffee shop. The second floor includes a growing collection of furniture from around the world that is for sale.
“We wouldn’t be open if it weren’t for staff at the City of SeaTac,” said Abshir “Ali” Mohamed, SeaTac Market owner. “The Department of Community and Economic Development helped us obtain our permits and understand the process of working together with their engineering, building, planning and permitting offices. The City really helped us make this happen.”
The market is open Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
