Neighborhood

The Pike Place Market neighborhood is a vibrant community and some people call it the “soul of Seattle.”

Pike Place Market was established in 1907 is open 362 days a year. Providence Vincent House residents simply need to walk out our front doors and take a few steps to reach the market where you can buy fresh produce, meat, fish, dairy products and baked goods. The Pike Market Food Bank is another nearby resource and clients can stop by once a week for free groceries. For the rest of your grocery shopping needs, a City Target is about two blocks away.

Living near the market also means residents have easy access to the Pike Market Clinic which serves homeless, elderly and low-income clients. The Pike Market Clinic offers primary care and several other health and wellness services. Providence Vincent House is also just blocks away from a Neighborcare Pharmacy and several major national pharmacy chains.

Getting around town is easy when you live at Providence Vincent House. All of Seattle’s major bus lines run through downtown and bus stops are within two blocks of our building. You will also find a Sound Transit Link Light Rail station four blocks away at Westlake Center. 

Providence Vincent House is within walking distance of the Pike Market Senior Center, Victor Steinbrueck Park, the Seattle Waterfront, the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Public Library – Central Library, a U.S. Post Office branch, a Social Security office and several places of worship for your spiritual needs.
