Kitsap Peninsula Farmers Markets in 2019!

Spend less of your time in grocery stores and more time out and about on the Kitsap Peninsula visiting our farmers markets this summer. These primarily open-air markets aren’t just a place to buy your seasonal produce, cut flowers, artisan foods, and locally made jewelry, art and more. They’re a chance to connect with your community!

Bainbridge Island

On Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., head to the heart of Bainbridge Island, where you can meet and greet others in the community while you shop at this sweet location between the Bainbridge Performing Arts center and City Hall, just a block up from Winslow Way. Master Gardeners are available to answer all your plant concerns and questions. This market runs April 6th through December 14th.

Belfair

The Belfair Saturday Market offers a wide variety of locally grown or made produce and products. Set up at the Belfair Elementary School across from the Mary E. Theler Community Center and the beautiful Wetland Preserve, the fun starts at 9 a.m.

Bremerton

In the cool, grassy shade of towering trees, experience live music and a view of the Port Washington Narrows every Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. while you make the rounds of the vendors set up in beautiful Evergreen Rotary Park in Bremerton. On the 3rd Thursday of each month, there is a Chef at the Market food demonstration, and on the 4th Thursdays, enjoy free, all-levels (and ages!) Yoga at the Market sessions. This market runs May 2nd through the second Thursday in October.

Gig Harbor

At the Gig Harbor Waterfront farmers market every Thursday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., stroll through the vendor tents in the grassy area of beautifully renovated Skansie Brothers Park. Take a break from shopping to have lunch, dinner, dessert, or a snack at one of the many food tents. This market runs June 6th through August 29th.

Now, the Thursday farmers market isn't your only option in Gig Harbor. The Gig Harbor Peninsula Marketplace is open on Saturdays at 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and runs through September in the former Peninsula Gardens Nursery. In addition to your purchases, get free gardening advice and resources from the Master Gardeners.

Kingston

Visit the local vendors on the beautiful lawn of the Port of Kingston Marina at Apple Tree Cove every Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. and closing at 2:30 p.m. Kingston Farmers Market also provides programs, information about community events and organizations, a Master Gardener booth and more. Later in the day at around 6:00 p.m. enjoy Kingston's Cove Summer Concerts at the Pavillion! This market runs May through October.

Port Orchard

Port Orchard Farmers Market has been providing local products to the community since 1979! You can visit this community market on the waterfront near Bay Street and Harrison Ave every Saturday until October 12th. The market starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m., so you can grab breakfast or lunch (or both!) and enjoy live entertainment while you shop.

Poulsbo

Poulsbo Farmers Market -this long-running community market is held in the parking lot of Gateway Fellowship, just up the road from the Historic Downtown Poulsbo waterfront. The market is open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. This market runs April through December.

Silverdale

Tuesday afternoons provide you with not one, but two opportunities to experience the freshest and best that Silverdale has to offer! Stop by the Tractor Supply Store to visit the Silverdale Farmers Market between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., then starting July 23rd you can swing on over to Maynard's Restaurant, where The Kitsap Community & Agricultural Alliance runs the Central Kitsap Farmers Market from 3 m. to 7 p.m. The first market runs April through September while the second market runs July 23rd through October 8th.

Information is unavailable on the Port Gamble, Suquamish and Lynwood Center farmers markets.
