Fun, lively and historic neighborhood just northwest of downtown Seattle
I’m always interested in going to outdoor markets in Seattle. From the well-known Pike Place Market, to the Ballard, Fremont, U-District, Lake City Way and multiple other markets, you’ll discover they are as diverse as the Seattle neighborhoods where they are located. A favorite of mine is the Ballard Farmer’s Market.
Every Sunday, from 10 am to 3 pm, you are sure to find a great selection of fresh veggies, fruits, meats, eggs, cheeses and other goodies from nearby farms. You’ll find amazing local honey, cider and homemade pies.
I love to talk with the vendors, learn a little about them and have my own farm to table experience when I get home. Adding to the positive vibes are musicians, young and old, entertaining the shoppers.
An added bonus to the Ballard Farmer's Market is its location. It's situated in the heart of the historic section of Ballard where the streets are lined with shade trees and quaint old buildings. There are an abundance of shops to peruse and cafés to enjoy. It's easy to spend your Sunday morning and afternoon exploring Ballard.
The Market is on Ballard Avenue NW between Vernon Place NW and 22nd Ave NW and extends up to NW Market Street. You will find parking on the surrounding streets. All meters are free on Sundays.
