The My Ballard team received an email from the team at Ballard Great Harvest Bread Co. (2218 NW Market St) stating that they will be permanently closing their doors from this Sunday, March 16.
This is the second Ballard business closure announcement this week, joining the long list of favorite establishments that are set to permanently close this month.
Ballard Great Harvest Bread Co. opened way back in 1999 and has been a fixture of Market St ever since. Check out the email from owners Jackie and Mark:
Dear Ballard Great Harvest friends and loyal customers,
It is with a very heavy heart that we have decided to close our doors. This Sunday, March 16th, will be our last day in business.
THANK YOU to all our customers and friends near and far for encouraging and supporting us over the last three years since we bought the bakery – and under the previous owners who opened the store in 1999. We have had a blast getting to know you and sharing our passion for good food with you. We will miss you!
Please know this has not been an easy decision to make. Times are very tough for many small businesses like ours. Ultimately, we have realized that moving on is the best thing for our family.
We are deeply grateful for your support.
Thank you for everything,
Jackie & Mark
