Contributing to the communities they serve is a high priority for Metropolitan Market. In 2016 alone, the company helped provide more than half a million meals for locals in need throughout the Puget Sound region. Metropolitan Market's dedication to community involvement is apparent through its existing partnerships with local organizations, including the Sammamish Community YMCA, Sammamish Chamber of Commerce and the Sammamish Farmers Market. The company will continue its strong partnership with the Sammamish Community YMCA as their largest local business contributor. Metropolitan Market is also a presenting sponsor for the Sammamish Farmer's Market where they will have a table each week during May through September.
As an anchor tenant in the ecofriendly Sammamish Village, the Metropolitan Market building was designed in tandem with the Village's green infrastructure. The property utilizes a photovoltaic/solar array that generates renewable energy and directly feeds the electrical system serving Sammamish Village exterior lighting. Green components on-site include rainwater harvesting, in which storm water is stored in a below grade vault and filtered for irrigation usage throughout the property. Pervious paving is being used in almost half an acre of Sammamish Village, which helps manage surface water during heavy rainfalls. The project's outdoor pavilion includes a green roof, which reduces run-off and pre-filters rain water ahead of entering the underground storm water vault. Developed by TRF Pacific LLC, Sammamish Village will host a broad mix of services in addition to Metropolitan Market including medical/dental, quick serve restaurants, sit-down dining and other neighborhood services.
