The Capitol Hill Farmers Market is moving to Capitol Hill Station — Here’s what it will look like

Sunday, the Capitol Hill Farmers Market will realize community hopes more than a decade in the making as it moves to its new home in the middle of the Capitol Hill Station plaza and along the E Barbara Bailey Way “festival street.”

Here’s how it will look with the new layout including E Denny/Barbara Bailey closed to cars during the market every Sunday, vendors lined up along the street, and a cluster of more vendor tents and tables inside the plaza.

CHS reported here on the move and the history of the market which marked its final day at 10th and Thomas in 2010 before moving to Broadway near Seattle Central during years of light rail and housing construction.

Organizers say the layout map shows the market in its full glory — under pandemic restrictions, there will be about half as many vendors. Recent vendors have included Alm Hill Gardens, Seeking Kombucha, Hierophant Meadery, Golden Girls Bakery, Canales Produce, Chao Chang Garden, El Chiot, Gray Sky Farm, King’s Mozzarella, and Moms Microgreens.

Starting Sunday, April 18th, you’ll find the market along E Barbara Bailey Way and on the station plaza between 10th Ave and Broadway. Hours will still run 11 AM to 3 PM. Learn more at seattlefarmersmarkets.org/chfm.

I still don’t get why construction started 3 years after the station was opened. We could have had the buildings and market in this location way earlier.

You’re welcome! Deep gratitude to all the neighborhood stalwarts who spent a couple of decades advocating with Sound Transit and the City to get here!

This is exciting! It will be a big improvement over the temporary location at SCCC, which had kind of an awkward layout. Now if we can just get past that pesky virus so that this market can operate at full capacity!

Neat!

Does anyone know when the H Mart opens?

Awesome, I can’t wait. I look forward to being able to browse more easily instead of feeling like I am walking down a long single sided hallway with the SCCC location.

Wow, has it really been 11! years! since the BofA parking lot farmer’s market? For some reason that makes me feel older than organic dirt.

Looking forward to the new dedicated location, and especially the return of some favorites that have been missing a while.
