Hey Seattle, it’s International Women’s Day this weekend! In honour of the women who make Seattle go round, we thought it would be fun to showcase some of the local women-owned and led businesses we love in the city.

As this year’s theme is #EachforEqual, we thought it made sense to make sure we’re making you aware of women-owned and led businesses where your hard-earned money can be spent. Plus it’s always fun to find out the background of businesses, we think! Additionally, we would like to make it clear that we use the term ‘women’ intersectionally.

Ada’s Technical Books & Cafe

women's day

In an era where it seems like bookshops should be dying, Ada’s is flourishing. That is thanks to the genius of owner Danielle Hulton! She has created one of Seattle’s most unique bookstores and gathering spaces. Not to mention they also have a wicked cafe.

Where: Ada’s Technical Books, 425 15th Ave E

Hot Cakes

Hot Cakes was opened by Autumn Martin in 2012 after years of selling her raw, frozen cake batter in mason jars at the farmers’ markets. Now, nearly 10 years later, Hot Cakes is one of (if not the best) dessert place around town! You can expect consistency, high-quality ingredients and a satisfied sweet tooth every time.

Where: Multiple locations

Baby and Co

This store is Seattle’s original hip clothing store. Baby and Co has been co-owned by women throughout its history and is still women-led to this day. You can still find some of the coolest, most unique, and highest quality garments in the city here.

Where: Baby and Co, 1936 1st Ave

Fran’s Chocolates

Here’s one that’s pretty well known in Seattle, and we bet you’ve already had her chocolates. That’s right! Fran’s Chocolates is owned and created by Fran herself! You probably already know, but Fran is the queen. We love you, Fran.

The Grinning Yogi

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Seattle is a city of yoga and while we’re always looking for new classes, we’d love to give it a go at a women-owned and operated studio. Plus, The Grinning Yogi is about celebrating you as you are and we’re all about that.

Where: Multiple locations

That’s our list! But let us tell you, there are so many wonderful women-owned and operated businesses in Seattle. This weekend (and every day) we hope you choose to support some of these fantastic women-owned businesses.

Happy International Women’s Day, Seattle!
