FarmBoat Floating Market on the Virginia V at Lake Union Park in Seattle FarmBoat wood boxes

The FarmBoat Floating Market is held aboard the historic steamship Virginia V docked at Lake Union Park Wharf. Vendors display locally grown produce, specialty foods and artisan crafts on board the 125' wooden vessel--just as it was done a century ago. Market visitors can tour the ship for free and learn about Puget Sound agricultural and maritime heritage while they shop. (There is plenty of space on deck to enjoy lunch with fantastic shoreline views of downtown Seattle and Lake Union).

The FarmBoat Floating Market shares the old-world charm and ambiance once enjoyed by Northwest seaport residents during the age of sail and steam. Hundreds of ships like the Virginia V traveled the waterways of Puget Sound at the turn of the 20th century--transporting farm goods and people before there were highways. Shopping at the FarmBoat Floating Market aboard the Virginia V The Virginia V was originally built to transport farm products from Vashon Island to Pike Place Market in 1922. This is a great opportunity to experience local heritage and learn about local culinary treasures and more.
