WELCOME TO MARKET
Arguably Kirkland's most iconic neighborhood, Market has been from the very beginning. In fact, the Market Neighborhood was home to Peter Kirk, the founder of Kirkland! Driving along Waverly Way transports you back to a time that was perhaps a tick slower than the hustle and bustle of today. The Market neighborhood has stood the test of time and seen tremendous change over the years. Iconic homes, parks and views for days continue to make Market one of Kirkland's most desirable neighborhoods in the area.
