The University District Farmers Market has been rated one of the twelve best farmers markets in the nation by The Daily Green!
The University District Farmers Market is among other famous farmers markets in metropolitan cities, such as New York’s Union Square Farmers Market and San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
The University District Farmers Market is one of five year-round Farmers Markets in Seattle (Ballard, Fremont, Pike Market, and West Seattle are the others). Pike Market might be the most famous, but there are sixteen other markets in Seattle that have much to offer.
