    So much fun to walk around! Lots of free samples and awesome street performers. Upbeat, dog-friendly, and great for families!

    On the north side of the market, sits a stall that makes unbelievable amazing fresh small donuts. Don't blame me if you gain ten pounds from them.

    The best farmers market in town. A must do, especially if you have visitors from out of town. Lots of great vendors and a wonderful experience. Love, love love.

    The bulk edible flowers are amazing in a light spring/summer broth or salad, and the price/quality is considerably better than what you'd find at a grocery store

    There's something for everybody at this market- especially those with an appetite! I recommend sharing a bag of warm cinnamon and sugar doughnuts in the winter here.

    Great year around farmers market with a good variety. I highly recommend Stokesberry farm and sea breeze farms. Parking can be a challenge.

    Visit the vendor with the homemade soda! Watermelon basil and cilantro lime jalapeno flavors were so refreshing!

    Head over to the Wilson Fish Market. They have the best smoked salmon and friendly folks who hand out free samples.

    HOT TIP: Pen ultimate Blue state faux pas? Forgetting to bring reusable bag to Farmer's market. As punishment, must engage in discussion about either Proust or David Sedaris while drinking merlot.

    • The Ballard farmer’s market is AMAZING. They’ve got so much fresh meat and produce it’s ridiculous. I used to go to the Fremont market but they’ve got way too many trinkets and rarely have produce Read more
