The Farmboat floating market program provides a way for heritage vessels to earn their keep. Farmboat is dedicated to preserving and sharing maritime history and honoring the ways of the past. We are seeking more organizations to partner with for new Farmboat routes. If your organization has a restored working vessel (or plans to restore a heritage vessel) that may be useful in transporting food products, please give us a call.

We Provide...

Floating Market Event Planning & Development

Logistics Planning & Port Negotiations

Connections to Local Growers and Food Producers

Sponsorships & Fund Raising

Media Publicity & Promotion

Internet Communications via Web Site and Newsletters

Social Networking Promotion

CSA and Individual Supporter Membership

Passenger Bookings

Signage, Display & Crating Materials

And Much More!

Non-Heritage "Affiliate" Vessels are Welcome Too!

If your organization has a non-heritage vessel that may be adequate for transporting farm goods and passengers in a manner that is commensurate with the idea of restoring traditional maritime trade, please give us a call. We have many exciting opportunities and potential routes available for discussion.

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."
