Exploring Ballard, Fremont Markets

We took one look at the sunny weather and bolted out the door this Sunday. After all, staying inside on a sunny winter day in Seattle is one of the seven sins, or so I’m told. First stop, the Ballard Farmers Market.

We weren’t alone, of course. Not as big as a crowd as a sunny August Sunday, but a pretty good turnout. Then we went to the Fremont Market.

Again, a good turnout, but not nearly as big as summer. So, you might ask, what’s the difference between the two markets?

On the left, that’s lettuce and other fresh produce at the Ballard Market. On the right at the Fremont Market, well, that’s a table full of bongs. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist). Really, for you newbies out there, the Ballard Market is a farmer’s market and the larger Fremont Market features crafts, antiques, knick-knacks, vintage clothing and artwork.
