Farmers Market Season Is Here!

Posted June 9, 2017

Sunshine in Seattle means one thing: the start of farm season! We are thrilled to welcome the summer with an exciting array of vendors, events and opportunities for supporting local growers and producers at Pike Place Market's five downtown Farmers Markets.

After a long Washington winter delayed the sprightful growth of most crops, our farmers have been hard at work to finally bring their best produce to the Market’s most loyal customers and enthusiastic newcomers alike. It’s bound to be a plentiful season as warm weather makes its way to the Pacific Northwest.

Fresh flavors await! Don’t miss your chance to meet some of the city’s most beloved producers and experience the fruitful summertime energy of Pike Place Market. Visit us at our epicenter, or stop by one of our five downtown Farmers Market locations.

Welcome home! This spring 40 low-income seniors are moving into the new MarketFront housing. For many of them, who were homeless before the move, this is a dream come true. We spent time with two of the new residents, Marilynn and Susan, to hear their stories.

It is exciting to see our community growing and we couldn’t have done it without YOU! Our donors help us fund and advocate for the community of supportive services that are located within the Market, services that all of our neighbors who work, live and learn here in the Market rely upon. Many of the new senior residents received help applying for MarketFront housing from the Pike Market Senior Center. Once they are settled in they will utilize the Food Bank and the Market’s Fresh Bucks program to access healthy produce. And when they are feeling under the weather Neighborcare Health is just a short walk from their building. You make this rich tapestry of support possible - thank you.

Many of the new residents are still in the process of settling into their new apartments. Join us in welcoming them home with a “Welcome Home Gift” by clicking here.

The new MarketFront housing is make possible in part by The City of SeattleUS BankKing CountyPike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority, and the Pike Place Market Foundation.

For Seattle residents, Pike Place Market has long been a favorite place to shop for holidays and special occasions throughout the year. Many generations of Jewish families have shopped for traditional foods served during Passover from the Market's highstalls (market-speak for produce vendors), fish and meat markets, and specialty foods stores. 

At various stages during the telling of the Passover story at the seder (the festive holiday meal celebrated on the first night of the holiday), symbolic foods are introduced and eaten.

If 10,000 daffodils could be the equivalent of at least 10,000 smiles, then the Pike Place Market’s annual Daffodil Day would be a great example of a generator for positivity for downtown Seattle residents and visitors.

This year Daffodil Day will be celebrating its 20th anniversary while gracefully honoring the first day of spring. Community members and volunteers will be handing out 10,000 locally grown daffodils to residents, workers and visitors at 15 downtown Seattle locations on Monday, March 20 from 11:45 am -1 pm. 

Of course Daffodil Day would not be what it is without the support from the dedicated farmers who take the time to plant, grow and harvest each cheerful flower. This year we would like to thank the following farmers:

  • Chai and Chee Cha from Shong Chao’s Farm in Carnation 

  • Kiseng Cha from Hmong Highland Garden in Monroe

  • John and Lita Mendez from John and Lita’s Farm in Pacific 

  • Teng and Lavou Jasengnou from Woodinville Valley Farm in Carnation

What: The 20th Annual Daffodil Day
