Safeco’s Bullpen Market getting new look, new food
No, it won’t have anything to do with David Aardsma and Brandon League’s efforts this coming season, but fans at Safeco Field will have a new experience in the Bullpen Market in the left-center field area.
The club announced Monday that three nationally renowned chefs — Ethan Stowell, Roberto Santibanez and Bill Pustani — are partnering with foodservice leader Centerplate on a new food plan for the area that will include more of a restaurant-style approach with specialties like pizza, crepes and Mexican food.
The Bullpen Market area is undergoing a re-design as well.
“Fans are gong to recognize this immediately as something special,” said Bob Aylward, the Mariners executive vice president of business operations. “The Bullpen Market has been completely re-imagined to make it more open and inviting. It will be comfortable and casual with a distinct personality very different from the old space.”
Aylward said the new chef partnerships will make the Bullpen a dining destination spot before and during games.
Fans will get their first chance for a sneak peak at the revamped Bullpen Market area at this weekend’s FanFest, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
