It's the place to go on the weekend. Lots of Christmas gift ideas for all ages and interests can be found here. Plenty of food stalls where you can grab a lunch. Recommend going across the street to Batdorf for a great coffee place.

There’s a little family stand that sell raw oysters, that’s my favorite stand but there are many great fresh food vendors at the Olympia farmers market.
