Openings and closings on Market Street

After a decade on Market Street, Cookies, the little niche shop is closing.

The owner, Caryn, tells us she wasn’t given much notice that her lease wouldn’t renewed. “I am sad, but over the shock, and now looking forward to my next adventure. I will miss watching the babies, toddlers and children I have gotten to know grow up. I will miss the dogs that come to visit for scratches and dog cookies as well,” she writes in the forum. Your last day for cookie cutters is Sunday, January 29th.

The Aussie hangout at Green Lake, The Kangaroo and Kiwi Pub, is moving into the old Carnegie Library. MyBallard reader Josh talked to the owner last week and says the new place will have an expanded menu. “I realize I’m going into the heart of Ballard and will need to kick it up a notch,” the owner tells Josh. The pub will take up the entire first floor, where Carnegie’s moved out of last year. The opening of the Kangaroo and Kiwi will be sometime this spring. Josh tells us the hours will be lunch to about 2 a.m. on weekdays and possibly breakfast on the weekends. Of course they will still open for special sporting events. The owner still isn’t sure if he’ll close the current location on Green Lake, but probably.
