Organic, local farmers, nurseries, bakeries, craftspersons and products with amazing food for our souls. Beautiful location on the Inlet and a place to eat and soak up positive energy. Good for our carbon footprint when we attend church in Olympia most Sundays. Parking available. Great choices in fruit, veggies and plants.

Love supporting my local farmers. Some of them I see not onlyl at the market but at church. Their constant drive to make our community a better place is amazing. Supporting my local market gives other local farmers a chance to "share" their goods as well.

It is one of the nicest farmers' markets I have ever visited. They have a permanent structure built to support all the local farmers, craftspeople, and bakers. It's one of the thing sI enjoy when visiting WA. And my brother and his wife run an organic farm and have a booth there! They have delicious veggies! My brother and his wife are organic farmer

Besides being a wonderful source of fresh fruits, veggies, plants, and local arts and crafts, our market is a wonderful community gathering place. People take time to visit, eat along the food walk, listen to local musicans play on the stage, discuss politics. It is Democracy in action; like the Forum in Rome ! Plus it promotes healthy eating !

It's so cool to be able to talk to the folks who grow our veggies, catch our fish, and wrap our meat. Looking forward to it growing to be more year-round.

Olympia farmers market is a great place for people to connect, and keep the money in the local economy. buying from a supermarket, you send your money faraway to Chile, or Mexico, even china in some cases. The community and local economy thrives when you support the farmers market.

Our farmer's market supports many of the small farms in the region which my husband and I wholly approve. The veggies and fruit are out of this world and they offer fresh fish and shellfish. The music, the food vendors, and the crafters make this weekly trip in from our small town a great experience.

Olympia Farmers' Market is not only full of locally sourced, many organic growers and producers but it is located a short walk from Budd Inlet on the Puget Sound with its breathtaking views of our State Capital campus, Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Mountains. In addition there is an amazing array of crafters who make functional and beautiful items for the home and for gifts. It's the first place I go for gift buying.

I enjoy having a relationship with the people from whom I buy produce. Shall I go on? Plenty of free samples without the accompanied huckstering, a la Costco, Albertson's, etc. Great quality foods and crafts. Did I mention how beautiful the place is?

It's a wonderful four day market with local produce & plants. The vendors there are knowledgeable and helpful. They always have a smile & welcome questions about their products and the area. The local Master Gardeners have a garden and booth there for people to peruse and ask questions. With lots of local food & music, there is always a festive atmosphere there. My grandchildren love to go there, especially for snow cones. My husband loves to go there for the pepperoni and I love to look at the plants & produce.

The Oly Farmers Market brings more life and business to the downtown community and to the local growers and artisans that have the opportunity to sell their products there. It is located on the waterfront and features local live music and a good atmosphere. I would love to see this market grow, and in these hard economic times, it, like many local, community-based spaces, like parks, are being shorted or closed. Keep the farmers market alive!

I go every weekend to pick up fresh, organic produce from families that I respect, to listen to music and eat breakfast with my friends, and to feel included in the vibrant, conscious, food-loving community of Olympia. It's the place I bring all out of town visitors to give them a taste of why I call this home.

It has the best fruit confections and chocolate eclairs ever. I have thought about flying all the way from New Mexico up there to get them. It's also got everything else you'd want in a farmer's market and it's in a gorgeous setting, with a delightful little harbor and great restaurants practically next-door.

There is a lot of talk about the value of a "sense of community." Olympia is a city in which that sense is alive and well and the farmers market is one of our community's living centers. There are friends, there is fresh beautiful local and organic food, there are the stalls that routinely hire our youth to sell produce and pass out samples. There are our local craftspeople and artists selling everything from sparkling jewelry to tee-shirts, from hand made soaps to artisan cheeses. Add live music and the fragrances of roasted nuts, curries, and coffee and you have the perfect antidote to the loneliness and isolation that are such unfortunate by-products of modern life!
