"Eat Locally" is a way of life for many residents in the San Juan Islands. The San Juan Island Farmers Market features delicious island-raised produce, berries, colorful bouquets, eggs, and dairy products, as well as fresh local seafood, shellfish, and meats. The market also features freshly cooked and prepared foods made from local ingredients, grass-fed burgers, hot sausages, baked goods, pizza, crafts, and more!
The market is held outdoors on the Brickworks Plaza, in downtown Friday Harbor on Nichols Street, from April through October on each Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.. It then moves indoors for the winter to Friday Harbor High School on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays in Nov and Dec. Then it will be held on the 1st Sat of the month for Jan - April. The market moves back to the Brickworks building in April for another great season.
The Brickworks is Friday Harbor’s newest rehabilitated historic site. The building was built in 1920 to house The Friday Harbor Brick and Tile Company. Today it is the last surviving industrial building in Friday Harbor. The rehabilitation is expected to be completed in May 2013 and will expand the Brickworks Plaza by providing year-round indoor market and event space in an important historic setting.
