Spring and summer are amazing in Seattle, the sun shines and the flowers are blooming, which means that it is farmer’s market season! Almost every neighborhood in Seattle has their own farmers market, each with their own flair. One of the best things about the Seattle neighborhood farmers markets are that they are often open on different days, so if you miss one you can just head to another neighborhood the next day! Not only do you always have the freshest produce available, but it’s a nice excuse to enjoy different neighborhoods, architecture, parks, gardens and restaurants close by.
Farmers markets aren’t just for zucchini anymore, they now have impressive lists of vendors, wine, beer, artisan foods, flowers, art, jewelry and a wide, evolving amount of international street food and food trucks. They often have live music and street performers for entertainment as well. We created a neighborhood Farmer’s Market day breakdown for people who want to know which farmers markets are closest to them and are open on what days.

There are too many amazing things at each market to list but we recommend checking out each and every one of them. Washington state’s fertile, coastal environment is rich with fresh, organic and local produce that is able to provide produce year-round. In fact, NW Washington grows 95% of the raspberries in the entire country. Combine that with abundant blueberry fields, Washington apples, plums, blackberry bushes and mild enough winters to grow root vegetables and leafy greens all year long, so you will be able to find all of your produce at a Seattle Farmer’s Market. Don’t forget to bring your reusable bags!
