About Ballard Farmer's Market, Seattle
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 - Write a Review
The Ballard Farmers Market spans multiple blocks with food and crafts. It is a great way to spend a Sunday morning/afternoon. A local that my friend and I met during brunch recommended that we visit the Ballard Farmers Market during our visit to Seattle. We have plenty of those in Atlanta, but we decided to stop by for a few minutes. Parking is a bit difficult, but it was definitely worth the trip. We spent most of our time eyeing the food stalls selling / serving fresh produce, dairy, meat, international cuisine, etc. Whether you want ingredients to cook at home or a meal ready-to-eat, you can find everything at Ballard. If you want to escape the weather, you can also head into one of the many shops that line the streets. Whether you're a local or a tourist, Ballard is a great experience. Note: many of the locals also brought their dogs along, so you can just go to dog-watch.
Get here as close to opening (10am) as possible for the best experience. It gets crowded quickly, especially in the summer. It slows down a little from late Fall until early spring but it's still worth the trip, regardless of the weather. Vendors are all friendly and have great quality products, but it can be a little pricey.
Love this Farmers Market. Open every weekend year around. Great selection of fresh veggies and meats.
Wonderful market consisting of mostly food products. If you want local seasonal produce, this is the place to go! Vibrant and alive community with so much ch to see.
Absolutely my favorite market in the Puget Sound region, bonus for being open all year. Excellent location (parking might be hard but it's Seattle) and a never ending selection of excellent vendors. Something for everyone.
