Seattle’s Original Farmers Market
Pike Place Market is home to Seattle’s first farmers market. Founded in 1907 to provide a place for farmers and customers to meet directly, the Market continues the “Meet the Producer” tradition with farmers selling their produce and products at Market farm stalls seven days a week, 362 days a year. Today, more than 80 Washington farmers sell at the Market, offering Seattle residents and visitors the freshest and highest quality seasonal abundance from their fields.
Farmers Market on Pike Place
June 20-Sept. 28
Designated farmers market days are Friday-Sunday, 9 am-6 pm. Farmers also sell daily inside the arcade and on the street throughout the year.
The farmers market is located on the cobblestone street of Pike Place, between Pine St. and Stewart St. Look for a row of white tents on the west side of the street, under which farmers sell their fresh produce brought in from the farm that day.
Inside the arcade there are many more farmers who sell abundant flower bouquets, vegetables, berries and herbs.
Fresh Bucks SNAP matching is offered at all Pike Place Market farmers markets.
From June-October, Pike Place Market operates four Express farmers markets around downtown Seattle at City Hall, First Hill, Pioneer Square and South Lake Union to bring our farmers' fresh and local produce to residents and workers in the greater neighborhood. Learn More

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.
