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 Reviews & Ratings
This was BY. FAR. the greatest farmer's market we have ever been too. So much to see, such fresh produce, unique shops, music... it was all incredible! I would absolutely LOVE to come back again. It truly was a great experience and definitely would have bought more if we hadn't had to have flew home!
This market is a fabulous time! I spent a few hours exploring the market and local stores along the way. Weather was perfect but I imagine in the rain, the market is still great if not a little less crowded. The fresh produce is outstanding and though a little expensive, its worth coming to have lunch here to support the locals. There is an information booth and every stall has friendly people. Will be coming back.
One of the best places to get the freshest of the freshest. We have been to the Ballard Market for years and it's always a pleasant experience. There are many other things to look and see afterwards, too (absolutely try Miro Tea!).
Ballard Farmers Market is getting better and better. Produce and deli, meat and fish are fresh and hand-made, local artisanal goods are really attractive (and useful). Music! Pizza and mini donughts! Should not be missed.
Lovely farmers market on a great street with small eclectic shops. Both artisanal products and fresh produce. Parking on street few blocks away. If only we were not traveling, would have bought the flower bouquets. Both lovely and affordable. Great fresh naan. What a fun way to spend a few hours.
