The Amazon community banana stand started in 2015 as a fun, quirky way to hand out healthy snacks to anyone in the community.

Since then, the community banana stand has expanded to two locations and become a weekday neighborhood pit-stop for anyone in South Lake Union (Terry Avenue, in Van Vorst Plaza near Mercer) or the Denny Triangle neighborhood (in front of Amazon's Doppler building on Westlake Avenue).

In January 2017, we hit a milestone of handing out more than one million bananas. As long as the community keeps loving their daily bananas, We will keep it running.

We welcome everyone to come by and enjoy a banana; you don't need to be an Amazon employee. While you're there, maybe pick up an interesting fact or two from our friendly "banistas."
