The flowers are still blooming! Brighten up your home and support a Pike Place Market flower farmer during these unprecedented times.

Throughout our peak season, April to October the Market hosts 30-40 small flower farms each day selling fresh tulips, daffodils, dahlias, peonies and more. Many of our tulips farmers have been growing for 30 years. These are all small family farms locally growing in Snoqualmie Valley, Carnation, Fall City, Duval Woodinville, Monroe, Auburn and Kent.  

With these businesses closed at Pike Place Market and other farmers markets across Western Washington shuttered through May, small family flower farmers need support.

Below are five ways you can purchase a bouquet and help keep family farms open.

Pick Up at Sosio’s Fruit & Produce

Sosio’s Fruit & Produce teamed up with six Pike Place Market flower farmers to offer bouquets. Stop by Sosio’s stand in the main arcade for apples and artichokes, and now flowers! Bouquets are $25, with $10 going to the farmers and $15 to the Community Safety Net.

Hi! My name is Terumi Pong and I am a Seattle phone photographer. I write about family travel and living in our city on my blog, An Emerald City Life. My family and I often come to Pike Place Market together to eat and explore. Sometimes we bike from our house and make a stop at the Market before or after a trip to the Aquarium or Seattle Art Museum. There is always something going on and something new to see. Between June and October we come every week to get our Pike Box CSA here, as well.

Most people think of produce, fish and flowers when they think of Pike Place Market and we love these things too. But some of our favorite places are hidden in the depths of the Market, in the DownUnder! I'm excited to tell you about what's in our Bag when we visited recently.
