Seattle’s Original Farmers Market
Pike Place Market was founded as a public market in 1907 to provide a place for Seattle citizens to "meet the producer" cutting out middlemen. On the first day, the farmers sold out in minutes and a grand tradition was born. Washington farmers continue to sell their locally grown produce and specialty farm products to shoppers seven days a week, 363 days a year.
New Evening Farmers Market on Wednesdays!
Enjoy the long summer evenings at the Pike Place Evening Farmers Market on Wednesdays, from 5-8 p.m., beginning June 1. Shop from dozens of local farmers who bring their freshest, just-picked-that-morning produce to market.
The Wednesday market will feature more than a dozen local produce farmers with tents set up in a double row on Pike Place. Family Fun activities are on the second Wednesday of each month and look for At The Table culinary programming in the Market's own Atrium Kitchen on third Wednesdays.

Preserving Farmland and Developing the Local Food Economy
In order to maintain our heritage as a vibrant farmers market, the Pike Place Market recognizes the importance of making sure farmland is available for generations to come, and that farmers can operate sustainable businesses. To support this we partnered with the City of Seattle and King County to convene the “King County Farms and Food Roundtable” to identify key recommendations to preserve farmland and increase market and distribution opportunities for local small and mid-sized farmers in King County.
