📍 Pike Place Market: The corner of Pike Street and Pike Place

March brings many things—spring, the end of Q1, and the start of the Mariners season. But most importantly for Pacific Northwesterners, March also means that daffodils will be in peak season, sprouting in parks and finely manicured flower beds around the city.  

If you’ve stopped by Pike Place Market over the past couple of weeks, you’ve seen boxes filled with this buttery yellow flower lining the roof along the market’s entrance. That’s all in preparation for their 27th Annual Daffodil Day to herald the first day of spring. From 11 am to 2 pm on Tuesday, March 19th, there will be tables full of thousands of daffodils under the market’s clock and sign. Everyone gets two free daffodils while supplies last, so make your selection carefully and quickly. 

All flowers you admire, stick your nose into, and purchase at Pike Place are grown within 100 miles of Seattle by multi-generational, family-owned farms that have been at the market for over 30 years. As much as Daffodil Day is meant to celebrate spring, it’s also meant to celebrate the farms that keep Seattle looking beautiful and smelling good. This year, four farms are responsible for growing these daffodils: Blong’s Garden in Fall City, Lor Garden in Kent, Nguyen Family Farm in Snoqualmie Valley, and Shong Chao’s Farm south of Carnation.
