The farmers at Ballard Farmers Market generously donated over 8,000 pounds of produce to our good friends at the Ballard Food Bank this past year!
Weekly, the Ballard Food Bank distributes food to over 1,200 individuals living in 98107, 98109, 98117, 98119, and 98199. The food bank, located just down the street from the Ballard Farmers Market, is set up like a grocery store where guests are able to grab a shopping cart and move through the various sections. Thanks to our market staffs gleaning efforts and to the generosity of our farmers, we were able to provide the Ballard Food Bank with over 8,000 pounds of locally grown produce to be incorporated in their pantry. This partnership demonstrates the belief that all should have access to good food.
