After much consideration we have made the very difficult decision to close Poor Dave’s Market.
When we opened last year, we knew it would be a difficult venture that would take a lot of work and that success was not guaranteed. We promised ourselves to give it our best shot, and while we had hoped to be in business longer, we are very satisfied that we gave it our all.
We have loved every minute of this adventure in our lives. Getting to know our customers and serving you has been wonderful, and we hope we have brought you some joy as well.
Our goal was to create a place where small businesses could come together and have a place to sell their products and where our customers could find these high-quality local goods in a local year-round convenient location. We accomplished that.
Unfortunately, while our customer support has been amazing and we appreciate you, the store just hasn’t financially supported itself to the point of hiring more staff to continue. We have worked almost seven days a week for the past year, and we are just not able to continue at this pace without hiring more staff. We had wanted to continue as long as possible, but with the economy changing, we just don’t believe it is financially feasible or smart to continue.
We have appreciated your true support. Please know that you have made a difference in your community and the only thing we ask is that you continue to support your local community. I promise you that every hard-earned dollar you spend in a small business is appreciated and makes a huge impact. Please continue to follow our Facebook page or Instagram. We will continue to share important information about the community and where you can find some of your favorite brands!
Please come visit us at our store in Bonney Lake this weekend to say goodbye and get some amazing deals. Almost the entire store will be on sale for 30% off!

How It All Began
At Poor Dave's Market, we have a passion for sharing our love of food with everyone we meet. Since we first began developing our ideas for the perfect local market, we’ve been dedicated to finding and offering the highest-quality locally sourced products at affordable prices. We want to share our desire to create a warm and inviting space for you to find your favorite foods and know exactly where they came from. When you shop with us you are supporting hundreds of local families with each purchase.
We have a desire to bring the local farmer's market indoors and year-round, where you can support your local vendors at your convenience.
Thanks to our food-conscious consumers and amazing local vendors, with whom we’ve built such special relationships, we are excited to serve the Bonney Lake community for years to come.
WE ARE OPEN! We hope you will come in for our fresh produce, meat, and dairy products, we also have a growing selection of other exciting food products, beer, cider, and wine.
