Popular market has something for everyone and more farmers than ever!
Nestled along the downtown waterfront in Gig Harbor’s Skansie Brothers Park, the Gig Harbor Waterfront Farmers Market is held every Thursday between June and mid-September. The market offers beautiful flowers, fresh produce, local food items and artisan crafts, as well as providing the opportunity to spend time in a breathtaking setting with family and friends.
Under the umbrella of the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance, Gig Harbor’s Main Street organization, the Waterfront Farmers Market strives to provide access for citizens and visitors to fresh, local, sustainable food and food products in an atmosphere that promotes community while supporting our region’s farmers and producers. By bringing people together at our Farmers Market, relationships are built between local growers and the customers, all while serving as a resource for healthy eating, wellness education and sustainability.
Whether you are a regular at the market, or a one-time visitor, you will enjoy a wonderful shopping experience. From the friendly greeting at the entrance by staff and volunteers, to the wide variety of farm-fresh produce, eggs, mushrooms and shellfish, this market offers a wonderful summer day outing that will bring you back again and again.
With a mix of local artisans and crafters, you will find a great selection of body products, home décor, and unique one-of-a kind gifts. Regional food processors round out the selection with honey, pickled vegetables, artisan breads, cupcakes, wine and coffee.
Prepared food vendors onsite make it easy to pick up your lunch or dinner each Thursday with an array of food options including wood-fired pizza, sandwiches, frozen delicacies, savory pastries and more.
And don’t forget the flowers. Multiple flower vendors offer lush, colorful arrangements to take home to your special someone … or to enjoy yourself.
The Waterfront Farmers Market is open 1 to 7pm each Thursday, June through August (1 to 6pm in September). Spend your Thursdays on the downtown waterfront and visit the market and all the unique shops and restaurants that Gig Harbor’s beautiful waterfront has to offer. Buy fresh and buy local!
