Discovering the Farmers Markets on Seattle’s Eastside

There’s never been a better year for open-air shopping, fresh and nutritious food, and support of our local farmers and businesses. Fortunately for us Eastsiders, there is a plethora of markets to choose from on a weekly basis offering: a variety of local, in-season produce, farm-fresh eggs, home-baked goods, just-caught seafood and more. In this post we share a complete list of farmers markets around the eastside, to help you find the ones closest to you, or a new one to discover!

At time of publishing all markets listed are open and operational, with the exception of the Woodinville Farmers Market. Do be sure however to check the individual markets’ linked websites before attending, for the most up-to-date operational details.

We intend to refresh this article each year with current times, locations, new markets, etc., so don’t forget to bookmark our link for future reference!
