Farmboat Floating Holiday Market
at Lake Union Park
FRESH SHEET: Thursday, December 9th, 11 to 3

The Holiday Season is a wonderful time of year to wander down to the waterfront at the new Lake Union Park and partake in the romance of a century ago. We will have LIVE music, locally crafted gifts, gourmet foods and local produce onboard the historic steamship Virginia V.

Farmers Market Corporate Gifts
Think local gifts this season!:Organic Gourmet Granola, Trevani Truffles, Pete’s Perfect Toffee, and McSweet Pickled Gourmet.

For your employees, coworkers, clients, and associates, we have a variety of corporate gift buying opportunities for you. Show them that you support the local economy this year and order your company’s gifts from our vendors!

While your at the market, Have a look around. The Virginia V is the last remaining steamship that was once part of a vast fleet of vessels which traveled all over Puget Sound to bring fresh farm goods to Seattle. The 125′ ship was fully restored a few years ago for a cost of $5 million. The Virginia V is registered as an Historic Maritime vessel which means that everything had to be restored to original – including the massive working steam engine.
