Express Farmers Markets Bring Fresh, Local Produce to Downtown Neighborhoods

Express Farmers Markets Bring Fresh, Local Produce to Downtown Neighborhoods

Posted April 4, 2013

If it were a band and not Seattle’s famed public market, we’d say Pike Place Market is going on the road. No expensive tickets, or hand stamps are needed though. This summer, the Market is taking its farmers beyond its digs at 1st Ave. and Pike St. to three downtown Seattle neighborhoods.

Beginning in June, the Market will operate three Express farmers markets in South Lake Union, at City Hall Plaza and Pioneer Square. 

Held once a week, these small farmers markets bring Market farmers and their fresh, local and seasonal vegetables, fruit, flowers, honey and value-added products, like beef jerky, directly to downtown residents and workers.

New this year is our Pioneer Square Express market in Occidental Park. Located in the heart of this architecturally rich neighborhood, this market will offer Pioneer Square residents and workers a new opportunity to enjoy this favorite downtown park.

Stop by an Express market and pick up a pint of fresh berries, bright and leafy vegetables for salads and a bouquet of flowers to bring summer into your home or office.
