Who Sells at Our Farmers Markets
Staff and volunteers at our markets' information tables are happy to help shoppers find particular products or farmers at each market.

Our stall spaces are devoted exclusively to Washington State farmers and small food businesses.
Farmers/Producers (including fishers, dairies, ranchers, orchardists and foragers) comprise a minimum of 70% of market space and sell directly to the public what they grow or produce: fruits, vegetables, nuts, meats, poultry, eggs, seafood, dairy, honey, nursery stock, cut flowers and processed farm products such as jams, preserves, ciders, sausages, etc. Our top priority and mission is to support local agriculture.
The remaining 30% of our market space is allocated for local small food businesses (Processors/Prepared Food Businesses) that produce their own artisan breads, baked goods, confections and other specialty foods, with an emphasis, where possible, on foods made with local farm ingredients. A very tiny percentage of this may include some ready-to-eat foods. Our intention is to support, where possible, unique, high-quality, new businesses that do not already have an established bricks-and-mortar facility. We do not have space for all types of foods (for example, some foods we are unable include are: dog treats, fairground type foods such as snow cones; olive oil; coffee beans). Please view more information on our How to become a Vendor page. We receive dozens of inquiries from interested vendors each month, but our space is very limited.
No space is given to wholesalers or resellers, nor to vendors of arts, crafts, imported or second-hand items, or other non-food/farm businesses. The primary purpose of these markets is to enable local farmers to sell directly to the public that which they produce on their own farms.
