You’ll be surprised at the variety of shopping to be found in Sequim. Along with the standard big box stores you can find all over America, Sequim has a number of unique markets and boutiques that make shopping fun, easy, and convenient.
Just a few hundred yards west, and an easy walk from Rainbow’s End is Sunny Farms, a market open from 8 a.m to 8 p.m. every day. They offer a great selection of fruits and vegetables (many organic), baked goods, a butcher, fresh seafood, and a deli. They make great sandwiches and offer many prepared foods to go, even delicious pizzas to bake back at your rig. If that isn’t enough they have homemade frozen yogurt and sorbets that change daily, you’ll want to visit every day.
Nash Huber began farming in the Dungeness River Valley 30 years ago. Today, he is a world -renowned expert on organic, sustainable agriculture, growing over 100 varieties of vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds and pork. Shop at Nash’s Farm Tuesday through Sunday, or purchase their produce at the Sequim Open-Aire Market and the Port Angeles Farmer’s Market year round on Saturdays. Residents are encouraged to participate in the farm share program, a great way to support local farmers and feed your family economically.
The Sequim Open-Aire Market is a farmers market that takes place in the center of town all day on Saturdays from May through October, with an abbreviated version on Wednesday afternoons. Live entertainment, food, flowers and locally made crafts make it a must do activity for locals and visitors alike.
Sequim proper offers shopping one would expect from a much bigger city. Along with such big box stores as WalMart, Costco, and Home Depot, you’ll also find Petco, and a Ross store. A Safeway and QFC grocery stores, both equipped with fuel stations, are all located along Washington Street.
Closer to the center of town you’ll find art galleries, wine shops, cafes, and our favorite coffee hangout, Hurricane Coffee Co. Not only do they have great coffee, but they’ve got pastries and ice cream too, making it a favorite stop for bike riders on the Olympic Discovery Trail.
Bell Street Bakery is just one block south of Washington on Bell Street, and offers a delectable array of breads and pastries. Watch the bakers at work grinding the local grain into flour for their artisan breads while you enjoy something decadent from the pastry case.
