Looks like Kem Weber to me?
It is not exact, Pixie. Note the M, also the size of the bowls in the P and R. Also, the center bar in the E looks centered in the sample. Oh, and the K.
There are several that have the same feel that I found, but had similar problems.
It might be a font that hasn’t made it into the digitized age, or a font made up by the sign company or an agency.
That was one reason I asked the age of the sign. A creation date might help one of the gurus find something.
I just noticed that the center bar of the E is lower in the word “Market” than it is in “Center”. That might suggest a custom-made job. It could be a made up face borrowed from the faces of that era. I’ll do a further search using the date as a guide.
No luck. I suppose you could simply call it an “Art Deco” style.
That’s a really nice find Lisa. Don’t know how you stumbled upon it - but most likely the closest Blake will come to keeping true to the font. Good job!
Thanks! If you look here the “R’s” are the same. The picture first posted isn’t a very good shot.
Hi,i happen to have a prob like this way back in college. And you did a remarkable job!

(Sorry if it’s already mentioned above.)
I think this may be what you are looking for.
Something else that’s related to Labor Day that I saw on YouTube today was this video all about the Pike Place Market going green:
