One of the great delights about Seattle summers is wandering through the many outdoor farmers market in surrounding neighborhoods. You can sample small bites of fresh produce, seasonal berries and artisan foods, pick up a floral bouquet, check out the arts & crafts, and enjoy chef culinary demonstrations.
Each farmers market brings its own style, vendors, and produce. Some markets are exclusively farm and food-focused, others include crafts. So be sure to visit each one to sample the best in show from our agricultural and artisan communities.
