Shong Chao's Farm is a beautiful 28 acre family-run business just south of Carnation. They happily converted their land from a Christmas tree farm to a family farm that includes gorgeous flowers, herbs, veggies, and chickens. Phong and Ma's son Chai is on the farm every day tending to the crops and maintaining the equipment. He says that he loves getting his hands dirty and having the freedom to run his own business with his family. He wasn't always interested in farming, but after working for the Parks Department for several years he noticed he was spending more and more of his free time on the farm and realized that farming was his passion. Shong Chao's Farm has been selling at Pike Place Market since 1993!

Ras Peynado has a long history at Pike Place Market. His mother started working at a bakery in the market when she was 18, later busking, selling T-shirts, and eventually becoming involved with the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority.
"I was at the market behind the table as a baby when she was selling shirts and later when she was in the office I'd come down and see the market behind the scenes," Peynado says. "It was always the place I was supposed to end up."
