Sustainable Ballard to host 9th annual holiday barter fair


Sustainable Ballard is hosting its 9th annual community holiday barter fair and celebration at Ballard Odd Fellows Hall (1706 NW Market St) this Sunday, December 7, from 5 to 8 p.m.

This event brings the community together each year, encourages creativity and sharing, creates friendships and offers people a relaxing and enjoyable shopping experience.

Food, drinks and live music will be on hand for guests to enjoy. All beer and wine will be donated to the event by Sunergy Systems.

What could you make for the barter fair and holiday party you may be asking? Do you make jam? chocolates? pies? cheese? beer? Do you make jewelry? Do you knit? Does your pig find truffles in the forest? Can you walk a neighbor’s dog? House sit? Baby sit? Would you teach fiddling? cooking? Any of these ideas and many more things and services like them would be great to trade at the Barter Fair.

In past years, barter items have included:

  • hand-made scarves, jewelry and pottery
  • home-grown or foraged produce
  • home-made jams, truffles, dried fruit, granola, beer and other delectable goodies
  • services such as dog-walking, tax assistance, home-sitting, massage and more
