Visit a Neighborhood Farmers Market in Seattle

Nearly everyone who comes to Seattle visits the iconic Pike Place Market, the historic farmer’s market located above the Seattle waterfront that is the best-known attraction in Seattle. We love the Pike Place Market too, but did you know that Seattle is also famous for its excellent neighborhood farmer’s markets? These vibrant neighborhood markets support Washington’s small family farm businesses. They are smaller, less crowded, and more personal. Many are open year-round. Enjoy shopping for fresh produce, baked goods, meat and seafood and cheeses, nuts, wine tastings, flowers, and one of a kind handcrafted gifts. The vibe is fun, casual, and friendly. Most markets also offer food stands and other hot, ready-to eat items made with local farm ingredients. The food is fresh and affordable. Some farmers markets also have live music and scheduled entertainment or cooking demonstrations. With locations all over the city and markets happening at different days of the week there is a little something for everyone.
