Mission Statement

The Duwamish Mobile Marketplace is an outdoor market for mobile trailers to sell products (food, jewelry, arts, crafts, merchandise, and services) servicing the people of West Seattle and tourists--with the Duwamish Tribe as its central theme. The vendors are all local, grassroots merchants, that will represent diversity, sustainability, and peaceful gatherings at the market. Aside from shopping, visitors will be able learn the history of the Duwamish tribe and how it contributed to the creation of Seattle. By using bulletin boards, story poles and special events, the colorful history, rituals, artwork, music, and dance of the Duwamish people will be shared and exposed to all visitors who are interested. The marketplace is a practical place to buy and sell, as well as a peak into the culture and the history of the people that helped to create Seattle then and now.

Byron Barton, his arm raised in solidarity with a protest against his eviction, was put in an ambulance, intended for the VA Hospital. Protesters blocked the ambulance departure and Barton was removed and put on the street.

UPDATE 3- SLIDESHOW: Scene of an eviction; Barton family evicted from home amid protest

By Tim Clifford

UPDATE Sunday July 20 5:30pm
Tomorrow the Barton family and S.A.F.E. are planning to hold a press conference in front of City Hall at 8:30 a.m. "We are hoping that the mayor will tell SPD to stand down" said Jean Barton of the goal for tomorrow's conference.

Taking inspiration from a similar incident that occurred in Oregon the Bartons are hopeful that they can get the attention of the mayor and prompt him to stop SPD from taking them out of their home again. Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant is expected to speak tomorrow as well.

UPDATE 6:50pm
