University District Farmers Market
Regularly recognized as one of the best farmers markets in the U.S., the University District Farmers Market is Seattle’s largest and oldest farm-and-food-only market, founded in 1993. Conveniently located between 50th and 52nd Streets on “The Ave” (the colloquial name for University Way), the market has a core group of “lifers” – farmers and food artisans who have been there, if not since the beginning, then darn near that long! It is these long-time vendors and the market’s dedicated shoppers who help give the UDFM its hometown feel and community atmosphere, despite featuring over 80 booths during peak season. Professional and amateur chefs alike come every Saturday to source unique ingredients not readily found even at other farmers markets.
