10 Best Places to Shop in The Olympic Peninsula and Washington Coast, Washington

Conservatory Coastal Home

Fodor's choice

With an array of upscale, seaside luxe-living essentials like soy candles (hand-poured on-site in small batches in scents like sailcloth, fog, moss, and water), this high-ceilinged, brick-walled home-design and gift boutique smells as good as it looks. Look for furniture fashioned from reclaimed wood, nautical-theme throw pillows, jewelry, seashells, and air plants in recycled-glass terrariums. There's a second location on Bainbridge Island.

Oysterville Sea Farms

Fodor's choice

This venerable aqua farm on the northern end of the peninsula is a must for fresh oysters and clams. You can take your purchases to your lodging or a picnic, or enjoy them, raw or barbecued, on the expansive deck overlooking what's been called America's cleanest estuary, Willapa Bay. The on-site deli also sells beer, wine, and other gourmet goodies. 

Sequim Farmers Market

Fodor's choice

You'll find honey, lavender, sea glass jewelry, pottery, and locally grown produce in abundance at this Saturday market, a tented affair with lots of color and live music, held between early May and late October.

Fodor's choice

The vast retail space at the Northwest Maritime Center stocks a variety of nautical gifts and gear, from brass fittings and rigging supplies to galley wares, illustrated knot books, and boats in a bottle. There's also a great selection of fleeces, caps, packs, and other outerwear. In the well-lighted back corner overlooking the bay, Velocity Coffee Bar sells espresso and baked goods.


This bustling market is a fun stop for picnic supplies or treats to bring home with you—think chocolates, local coffee, finishing salts, cheeses, charcuterie, artisan cider and beer, handmade sugar scrubs and soaps, toys, and flasks.

The more than 40 dealers at the two-story Port Townsend Antique Mall sell merchandise ranging from pricey Victorian collectors' items to cheap flea-market kitsch.

Port Townsend Farmers' Market

Port Townsend is proud of its long-standing farm-to-table ethic, and you can share in the region's bounty at this vibrant farmers market held Uptown on Saturdays April–mid-December. Approximately 70 vendors, including some 40 farmers, showcase their fare—fresh produce, flash-frozen salmon, artisan cheeses, ciders, prepared foods, and baked goods, along with crafts, flowers, and handmade soaps. A smaller market is held on Sundays at Chinacum Corner June–October.

Quinault Pride Seafood

Famous for its environmentally conscious practices, this market harvests seafood from Quinault tribal lands. Come early for the top catches, which often sell out by noon. Other goods include canned and smoked salmon and steelhead, plus Quinault arts and crafts. If you're overwhelmed with the choices, buy a gift pack, which combines a range of ocean delicacies. The market is 20 miles north of Copalis Beach. 

William James Bookseller

Used and out-of-print books covering all fields—with an emphasis on nautical, regional history, and art titles—are arrayed from floor to ceiling in this jam-packed indie bookstore that also carries first editions and other rare finds.
