Dust off your doggo strollers and get your leashes ready because it’s prime stall paw-rusing time at a dog-friendly Seattle farmers market near you! Seattle is all about the fresh and local finds, and with markets throughout the week, you can fetch fresh berries (or whatever makes you yappy) all summer long.
Before Pup Visits Seattle Farmers Markets
A thought or two to lick by: some markets are bigger than others, so it be-woofs you to consider your dog’s temperament before bringing him to a crowded market. Leashes are required for all doggo visitors, and poop bags are a no-brainer, too.
Pssst…our exclusive Patio Leash™ is the pawfect length for keepin’ pup by your side while you’re out and about.
Seattle Farmers Markets Details
Sundays, 9 a.m.–2 p.m., year-round
Year-round, rain or shine. That’s the Ballard Farmers Market motto. The first Seattle market to offer produce exclusively from local farmers, there’s more fruit, vegetables, meat, pasta, kombucha, and local yogurt than you can shake a stick at (and that’s just fur starters). Make sure to stop by Puddles Barkery, a dog bakery offering fresh doggo goodies.
Thursdays, 3–7:30 p.m., June 2–Oct. 14
Seattle’s only independent, community-run farmers market, Queen Anne welcomes vendors of all kinds—farmers, fishers, foragers, winemakers, beer makers, and everything in between.
