For Farmers

The Pike Place Market farm program is a growing community that continues to adhere to its founding principles and values to support small, local farmers who sell directly to downtown shoppers of all income levels. The Market at large is governed by protocols and procedures found in our charter and Daystall Rules and Regulations. All who participate in the community are welcome to join in the process.

Farmers Market Nutrition Programs

FMNP is made up of two federal programs, the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) FMNP and the Senior FMNP. The programs seek to improve the health of participants by providing access to fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables and to promote farmers markets. Participants in both programs are given information about nutrition, such as the importance of fruits and vegetables in the diet and how to store and prepare them, as well as other information to help them eat a healthy diet. Checks can be used between June and October to buy fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.
