There’s no better way to sample dozens of Walla Walla businesses than the Downtown Farmers Market where dozens of vendors gather on Saturday mornings from May to October. Come with us on this delicious adventure where you’ll find everything from fresh produce, to locally made cheeses, eggs, cut flowers, baked goods, hand-crafted items, and more.
Speaking of baked goods, we highly recommend you grab a cinnamon roll from Fat Rolls on your way in to enjoy while you shop all of the goodies! (How can you resist? We couldn’t!)
There are multiple fresh flower vendors at the Farmers Market – perfect to brighten your Airbnb, hotel room, or home (if you’re lucky enough to be a local)!
There’s loads of beautiful, local produce at the market. The Walla Walla Valley is such a rich agricultural area and our Farmers Market reflects the abundance of pristine fruits and veggies we grow here. It really doesn’t get any fresher than this!
Coffee and donuts anyone? Coffee is available from multiple vendors by the bag and freshly made for sipping while you shop! Enjoy it with a sinfully delicious donut from Stay A-round Donuts and Fry Pies!
Don’t forget the microgreens and mushrooms! Chesed Farms has a variety of both and their goods are guaranteed to satisfy both your eyes and tastebuds. This local farm is beloved by locals and sure to please.
You can also shop for candles, soaps, cutting boards, and more hand-crafted items. These make the perfect souvenir from your trip to Walla Walla (and directly supports one of our local small businesses).
Looking for something to sip on later? You’ll also find locally made beer and teas at the Farmers Market. Perfect to take home or to enjoy while you’re here!
Fresh-made cheeses from Monteillet Fromagerie (above) and the Walla Walla Cheese Company will delight the dairy lover (and are perfect to enjoy with the wine you’ve picked up on your tastings). We love the sriracha cheese curds from Walla Walla Cheese and the Larzac from Monteillet!
Live music from local musicians adds to the ambiance of the Farmers Market, and makes it that much more magical! We hope you’ll make a plan to spend some time here on your visit to Walla Walla.
The Downtown Farmers Market takes place every Saturday, May through October from 9am to 1pm at 106 W Main Street. You can visit their website for more information and a full list of vendors here.
