Love to watch people; this is THE place in Oly. Great food vendors with all types of choices. Everything is hand made here, or you can't sell it....so, lots of great local crafts. Hard to beat a trip to the market, and then the 1 block walk over to the waterfront to see the activity there.

This is a real farmer's market, not a city market like Pike Place in Seattle, so you will not see supermarket produce from late October to late April. Over the winter one finds mostly craft vendors, plus bakeries, and butchers stands, local cheese, eggs and honey, with some produce like potatoes, apples and carrots, onions and garlic. The type of... More

Cozy and friendly. Great meeting place for friends and family, kid friendly. Local homemade stuff. Friendly vendors. Fun to have breakfast or lunch there. Colorful and unique clothing items. Ppl who live in Seattle and have access to the famous Pike Place Market, prefer (time permitting) to use the Olympia Market for many of these reasons.

Love our Farmer's Market! The variety of fares ranges from flowers and plants to foodstuff to hand crafted items. The music and food booths add a festive air and there's always a roof to get under if it should rain. Fun stuff.

Small but very nice. Great shopping, food, music and fun. Worth the trip. Lots of cool restaurants near by and a fantastic butcher shop inside the market.

This weekly Farmer's market is wonderful to shop for fresh local produce. Also available are goods from some local bakeries and meat markets, as well as crafts from local artisans and various plants. The craft selection doesn't vary much but the produce is always changing with the seasons.

The market is an amazing place to shop or casually walk thru. I can't even begin to tell you how often I find my self venturing down--especially during the summer/early fall hours when they are open during the weekdays. Love the local organic produce and have even been able to find some amazing gifts made by local people. Fun --... More

It is a fun spot to go get fresh food and advice about different plants. People very friendly. The market is just the perfect size. I love Pike's Market also but tire out so quickly as it is so large. Also this market has vendors selling items besides food products.

Very average market, local produce but at some high price. The food is fine and there is variety, but nothing to highlight that deserves a review. They don't allow pets in the market, which I think is outrageous. You can't even sit down and enjoy the music with your pets having a drink. There are so many arguments about this... More
