Welcome to the Market
The Ballard Farmers Market runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday. The market goes year-round, and it happens regardless of rain, sleet, or snow. Only Thanksgiving and Christmas Day make the Ballard Farmers Market take a week off.
Take Back the Street
Every Sunday, the Ballard Farmers Market pops up on the historic Ballard Avenue NW between Vernon Place NW and 22nd Avenue NW.
Local buyers can shake hands with local sellers, and customers can talk with the cooks themselves. The Ballard Farmers Market is a community-based experience. It’s a place where relationships form and flourish. Pictured: Jonboy Caramels.
Picked This Morning
No frozen fruit. No preserved vegetables. The Ballard Farmers Market offers in-season produce free from sprays, pesticides, or food miles. Michael Pollan would rejoice.

Greens, Greens, Greens
Hundreds of different leafy vegetables exist in the world. The Ballard Farmers Market sells approximately all of them.
Shortcut to Mushrooms
Mushrooms and wild greens, medical benefits and culinary delights. Foragers are alive and well in the Pacific Northwest. Pictured here: Foraged & Found Edibles
Buskers line the streets and provide background music for focused shoppers. Those with extra time linger to enjoy the performances.
Local Troll Caught Fish
No, our favorite Fremont-dweller has not picked up a new hobby–“Troll” refers to a style of fishing. But even without a giant concrete fisherman, this seafood is as local as it gets. Wilson Fish Markets sells halibut and king salmon caught right off the coast of Washington.
Eccentricity is delicious at the Ballard Farmers Market.
Washington has 1,700 acres of cranberry farms. But only 10 acres are organic, and they all belong to the same farm. The Ballard Farmers Market is one of the few places where you can find these local, organic fruits.
