"Eat Locally" is a way of life for many residents in the San Juan Islands.

The market also features freshly cooked and prepared foods made from local ingredients, grass-fed burgers, hot sausages, baked goods, pizza, crafts, and more!

The market is held year-round at Brickworks, in downtown Friday Harbor on Nichols Street. High season hours (July 4 – Labor Day) are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Low season hours are 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The market takes place each Saturday from mid-April through October both inside and outside of Brickworks.
