Yes, water evaporates at the poles too. This is because evaporation, unlike boiling, doesn't require a specific temperature, for it to occur. Evaporation can happen at all temperatures.Water evaporates because the air in contact with it is dry. Hence evaporation would occur unless and until, the air becomes saturated with water vapors.
