Husband-and-wife team Eric and Clarita Santos, of Santos Farm, have sold produce and flowers in Pike Place Market for more than 30 years.
They got their start selling vegetables and later moved into growing flowers in the late 1980s. Eric’s parents emigrated from the Philippines, where they were factory workers. They became farmers, a tradition that Eric and his five siblings have continued.
They began with their farm in Auburn, Washington and later acquired another farm in Kent, Washington. Their farms are about 30 miles from the Market.
You can usually find Santos Farm set up on the farm tables just under the Public Market Center Clock and Sign.
