WENATCHEE —The Washington Public Port Association awarded its 2019 Creative Partnership Award to the Port of Chelan County for its work on Pybus Public Market.

The Port purchased Pybus’ warehouse in 2010 and worked with several local agencies and private investors to develop it into the current market.

Then the Port sold the space to the Pybus Charitable Foundation in 2017. The next year the two groups launched the Pybus Partnership to establish a tech incubator on the second floor of the annex building.

That space is currently occupied by Subsplash, a Seattle-based software company.
