Ballard Avenue Sunday Farmers Market
At the picturesque year-round Ballard Avenue location you'll find a thriving market that has won acclaim as the best local market for two years running because of a constantly expanding variety of ingenius offerings and specialties from local farmers, culinary artists and craftsman designers.
Enveloped in the tree-lined canopy of this historic maritime street and laced with the happy sounds of musicians and children and throngs of the Sunday shoppers, Ballard offers a vast selection of just-picked local fruits and vegetables from Washington farms and orchards, as well as wild-crafted items-honeys, mushrooms, sauces, jams, jellies, local nursery plants, spices and herbs. Favorite attractions are the expansive choice of delectable artisan cheeses ( both dairy and goat varieties), pasture-finished, hormone-free meats, seafood, shellfish, free range poultry & eggs, seasonal plants-not to mention dazzling arrays of flowers and hot oven-fresh breads, and two local wine bars and coffee shops for those who want to sit and savor the old-world atmosphere. Adding local brilliance are wonderful craftsmen designers of furniture, ceramics, garden art, jewelry as well as purveyors of hand-made soaps, lotions, perfumes and exotica.
The Market goes all year round, with a surprising variety of local foods, such as fresh wild fish, orchard fruits, fresh picked seasonal greens and vegetables that are still available throughout the year, complimented by the cheeses, mushrooms and foraged edible delicacies, gourmet shellfish, honeys, breads and pastries, handmade pastas & sauces, and other seasonal offerings.
