The Market Theater Gum Wall is a brick wall covered in used chewing gum located in an alleyway in Post Alley under Pike Place Market in Downtown Seattle.
The tradition began around 1993 when patrons of Unexpected Productions Seattle Theatresports stuck gum to the wall and placed coins in the gum blobs. Theater workers scraped the gum away twice but eventually gave up after market officials deemed the gum wall a tourist attraction around 1999.
Post Alley Gum Wall is a popular site for wedding photography. There is an estimated one million pieces of gum stuck on the wall.
It is in an alley below/underneath the Pike Place Market, just down from the Market Theater.
The place follows state and local guidelines and safety measures like temperature checks, imposing social distancing, providing hand sanitizers, and wearing masks. It is open for the whole day and the whole week.
