We visited the market today and were able to buy dinner for several nights and lots of fresh fruit and veggies! I found fresh troll-caught King salmon, new potatoes, lots of veggies and treats for dessert. The market is clean and features food booths for lunch with a variety of offerings and music. There is a lovely patio for seating.... More

I stopped in Olympia on the way back to Portland and was just driving around when I discovered this gem. I absolutely loved this market. They had a huge variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers and homemade goods. The homemade items ranged from soap, to lotions, to pottery. Great items all the way around. An ATM was available and there were... More

I returned for a visit last summer and was thrilled to find the Farmer's Market down by the pier. Lively, colorful, joyful, and abundant with all the best products the Pacific NW offers. Beautiful handmade crafts (I got licorice soap!), and delicious fruits, wonderful meals at the little walk up restaurants. Something for everyone.

There are sooooo many great vendors at this market you had better go and visit it for yourself! Prepared foods, various baked goods, lots of produce both fresh and deliciously jarred, hand made crafts and beauty products, fresh seafood and much more with various live musicians at different times; an all around deliciously fun time that supports the local community.

We stayed with a local who took us here first thing after we arrived. We walked into the market seeing various stalls: vegetables, fruits, plants, herbs, seafood, jewelry, etc. The colors of all the produce was wonderful. It was packed with locals buying up goods. We bought most of the ingredients for our dinner here. The spirit of the Pacific... More

i found alot of excitment about the farmers market. we went there and found nothing special. it did have some variety, but the prices for there produce was alot more than local stores. they did have alot of organic but still the local stores and the street vendors had better pricing. i doubt we would go back.

This is one of the gems of South Puget Sound. Open Thursdays through Sundays right down on the water. Always a crowd. Lots to choose from, music, ambiance, good food.

We had heard great things about this market and it did not disappoint! We visited in late May and there were many plants and veggie starts. There was also great produce and awesome artisans. Our favorite was the fern guy -- we bought a beautiful succulent wreath from him. There was music and GREAT food -- go hungry -- many... More

This is a small market with a variety of fruits, vegetables, plants, meats, seafood, breads, and items from local artist. It is covered, which makes it a great choice on a rainy day. I just returned from buying my peppers and heirloom tomato plants. I bought them here last last year as well. They have a great selection of very... More
