Winner: Ballard Farmers Market
Ballard families love visiting the Ballard Farmers Market, open on Sundays year around. The market boasts diverse local vendors and entertaining buskers on a street lined with charming boutiques. We won’t tell if you indulge in some sweet treats while you shop for local, organic produce and healthy prepared foods for the week ahead.
The Edmonds Farmers Market runs from late spring through early fall. Technically, the early market, called the Garden Market, runs from May through mid-June, and the Farmers Market runs from mid-June through September, but whatever you call it, you will find lots of fruits, vegetables, jewelry, clothing and more at this cheery Saturday market.
There are seven markets in the Seattle Neighborhood Farmers Market group, but two year-round markets stand out as reader favorites: the Friday Phinney Neighborhood Farmers Market and the Sunday West Seattle Neighborhood Farmers Market at the Junction.
The Saturday Shoreline Farmers Market’s Power of Produce (PoP) Program distributes $2 in market currency to kids ages 1–15 that can be used for purchasing fruits and vegetables.
