Support the Lake Union Park Floating Market     Aboard the Historic Steamship Virginia V!

The Lake Union Park Floating Market is perhaps one of the most unique farmers markets in the country. Held aboard the historic Steamship Virginia V, this market provides a way to help preserve maritime history while connecting people with local growers and food producers.

The Virginia V is the last of her kind. Originally built to carry farm products from Puget Sound ports to Seattle's Pike Place Market, the Virginia V still stands proud after 90 years. It takes a substantial amount of effort each year to maintain her wooden hull and century old steam engine. We believe the the Floating Market and other FarmBoat activities will eventually sustain the financial needs of the Virginia V. However, while the FarmBoat Market program is being developed, we need you help! Donated funds will be used for promoting and establishing this new market.
