Seattle & Eastside Farmers Markets: Locations, Times & More

Summer is just around the corner, and so are these farmers markets! Spend an evening or weekend finding your new favorites among the tents. Think it’s all about kale? Think again. Most offer live entertainment along with a mouth-watering variety of local brews, cheese, bread, meat/seafood, honey, hand roasted coffee, and other hidden gems (in addition to the freshly picked fruits & veggies). This year, we’re proud to sponsor the Mercer Island Farmers Market for its 15th season!
