The Olympia Farmers Market
Established in 1975, the Olympia Farmers Market is one of the only vendor-owned and operated farmers markets in The State of Washington. The market is governed by a volunteer board of directors comprised of member-vendors and is funded primarily through vendor fees.
With over 100 vendors, an estimated 400,000 visitors per year, The Olympia Farmers Market is a bustling marketplace offering seasonal fruits and vegetables, plant starts, cut flowers, seafoods, fresh and cured meats, baked goods, wine, condiments, confections, preserves, jewelry, woodworking, textiles, eight distinct restaurants, and many unique and artisanal goods.. Truly local, our vendors grow, make or produce their items, hailing from Thurston, Mason, Lewis and Grays Harbor Counties. We have three distinct seasons, progressing from one day per week in January to four days per week during the height of our season. The market is open year-round, more than 150 days per year. Our beautiful, open air building allows us to be open rain or shine and we offer free parking, a main stage with daily live music performances, restroom facilities, and ample seating for our patrons.
The Olympia Farmers Market promotes several food access programs such as WIC and Senior FMNP, EBT and Fresh Bucks. Access to healthy and nutritious food is a fundamental value that brings our customers and our vendors together to exchange goods and ideas. We feel that it is critical to provide education and access to all members of our community and we are proud to continue to grow in these efforts.
