Seattleites have range — if you’re a crafter or stay pickling those home-grown veggies, there’s a way to turn that hobby into a side gig.

Farmers markets are an easy way to get your name and business out in front of your neighbors.

Here’s how to apply to become a vendor:

Get your paperwork done

Sorry, we hate it too. But there are a few important pieces of paper you’ll need to get started.
  • A business license: You may need more than one depending on where you’re operating. Washington State and the City of Seattle both have their own — as do other local municipalities. Check your local gov’s website for help.
  • Food Handler’s Permit: If you’re serving food, you’re going to need one of these bad boys. Note: there are different kinds of food handling permits based on what food you’re handling.
Feeling a little lost? Seattle Farmers Markets has a list of relevant permits you might need and other resources to help get you set up.

Apply at your local market

Here’s a few you may want to consider:
  • Seattle Farmers Markets | This org is looking for businesses selling a variety of food items including produce, jams + pickles, and ready-to-eat items.
  • Pike Place Public Market | You too can become a part of this local legacy. Special applications exist for craftsmakers, farmers, commercial leasers, and biz owners wanting a temporary space to test out products with the locals.
  • Delridge Farmers Market | In addition to food stuffs, this market, which prioritizes BIPOC-owned businesses, is also welcoming craftsmakers.

    Have an e-bike or e-scooter? You can now use it to zip along regional trails now that the Metropolitan King County Council has passed legislation allowing these rides along paths like the Burke-Gilman Trail and Sammamish River Trail.

    The change goes into effect later this month, but with some specifications on the bikes allowed. Class 1 and 2 bikes are admitted, but class 3 bikes (which can peak at 28 mph) will continue to be prohibited. The speed limit for these trails will stick at 15 mph regardless of class.

    The change comes as the number of residents using e-bikes or e-scooters increases, with 5.1 million share rides taken in 2023.

    Some other items included in the legislation are:
    • Approval for a new study that could extend trail opening hours after dark
    • Shorter leash length requirements for dogs
    • Updating criteria the parks director uses to set fees
