The Olympia Farmer’s Market is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon and support local Olympia vendors and artisans.
You’ll find everything from farm-fresh produce, flowers and plants to steel artwork, fabric and paper textiles, hand-made soaps, pottery, seafood, meat, and everything else in between! You can also get your palm read (I did that and was amazed and impressed!).
You can enjoy a snack or a meal at one of the food shacks, and in the summer, enjoy live music.
There are many events that happen at the Olympia Farmer’s Market. For the fall, September is the local tomato festival at the market. October celebrates the fall festival and a Halloween costume contest. November will host a Chihuly Glass Pumpkin Patch you won’t want to miss.
The Olympia Farmer’s Market is easy to get to and has plenty of free parking. Just head north on Capitol Way until you get to the waterfront. From here, you can walk along the waterfront of Budd Bay on the boardwalk, stroll through downtown and even head up to the Capitol Campus. It’s all within walking distance.
The Olympia Farmer’s Market is open almost year-round; April to October, Thursday through Sunday from 10 AM to 3 PM. (During November and December, the market is open Saturday and Sunday.)
