Port Townsend Waterfront Real Estate

A rich sense of community is enjoyed by Port Townsend waterfront real estate owners are well, and both locals and visitors enjoy the weekly farmers markets with dozens of vendors from various area farms, artisan bakers and cheese makers, artists, musicians, and others. What you cannot find at the farmers market can be found at the Port Townsend Food Co-op and the myriad of independent shops – chain stores are rare with less than a handful to be found, though they can be reached in nearby cities like Sequim and Silverdale.
