FarmBoat Trading Partner Membership
- for Commercial Sellers & Buyers

FarmBoat provides a communications network and over-water transportation link between sellers and buyers in local ports. We invite sellers and commercial buyers who are able to make dockside deliveries and pickups at local ports to apply for membership.

Local Food & Craft Producers - Trading Partner Sellers receive a listing on the FarmBoat web site so that visitors to the FarmBoat floating markets can easily learn about your products. In addition to the listing, we will send out a reporter to conduct an in-depth interview and produce an editorial story about your business--complete with photos.

Restaurants & Markets - Trading Partner Commercial Buyers receive a listing in our newsletter and web site to let consumers know where to buy local goods delivered by sea.

Your membership helps fund our communications efforts. The FarmBoat idea is gaining momentum in the press. The unique combination of local foods and maritime heritage is peaking the interest of the public.

Our first year membership fee is $500. We can accept partial trade in fresh produce, packaged foods and crafts as well as gift certificates and vouchers that we can use in FarmBoat promotions.

The FarmBoat Floating Market aboard the Virginia V at Lake Union Park is closed due to City of Seattle adverse policies against small businesses. For more information, see "FarmBoat Under Siege."
