Ballard Farmer’s Market says goodbye to a longtime vendor

Posted by Meghan Walker on May 30th, 2011

At Sunday’s Ballard  Farmer’s Market, one of the longest standing farms, Anselmo’s, announced their retirement.

Marie (Debrusca) Oliver started the farm in 1998 with her mother, Arlene, and Arlene’s husband Chuck. After losing her mother last year and Chuck just last week, she decided it was too big a job to do it alone.

Anselmo’s has been with the market for over a decade, and was the only vendor selling fresh local produce in January ten years ago when the market became open year-round. To read more about Anselmo’s closing, visit Pacific Northwest Seasons’ blog.

    Oh no!  They had the best garlic in the market by a mile, and Marie was always fun to talk to.  Best wishes!
