Ballard Farmer's Market - Review
This lively farmer's market started in 2000 and is still going strong. Farmers of Washington state descend here with fresh fruit, veggies and other produce whether rain or shine all year long. It's become quite a weekend family attraction. Kids love it, especially when they come up to the many street musicians busking away. Not everything here is raw; some vendors sell cooked food. Some food is seasonal, and so it's always fun to look forward to coming harvests. Altogether there are about 100 vendors, and every Sunday they serve at least 1000 customers.

Ballard Farmer's Market, Seattle Reviews
Great atmosphere and good people. I like how they all sell eco friendly biodegradable cups. The crepe stand had an option where you can use metal forks and you would have to give it back. You are walking around anyway and it’s not a big hassle. Very mindful of their waste. Ballard is such a quaint and beautiful place and this market really is a pleasure to walk around in.
Great for picking up duck eggs, sheep stew meat, tumeric and ginseng sausage, or sunflower sprouts. You can also see pictures of happy free range livestock that your helping support. The place is packed and full of energy even on rainy days.
Pretty large farmers market with a wide variety of vendors. Live music was spread out down the blocks which added to the lively atmosphere. There are also lots of fun shops and restaurants on both sides of the street, its easy to pop into the stores and back out to the market for a fun mix of food and goods. There were less organics than I would like, but definitely a wide variety and Beautiful flower booths! Everything from from meat, cheese, jams and toffee was available.
An all year round farmer's market on Sundays on Ballards main st running from 10 am to 3 pm. Great for fresh fruits and vegetables in the summer months and in the winter for those dried goods and meat. Plus lots of local arts and goods.
The vibe here is amazing. Live music, great food, cool people. I always start at one end and grab the homemade donut holes (they’re worth the calories- trust me here) and a fresh brewed coffee, browse the local vendors, pick up some local organic produce, and finish on the other end with a large bunch of beautiful flowers. Fantastic way to spend a Sunday!
