WALK THIS WAY to the BALLARD FARMER'S MARKET. A special holiday walk!
Come walk with us. We are leading free, fun and interesting walks around the greater Seattle area. See details below for our upcoming December 20 walk.
We've designed this urban walk just for the holidays! This special walk will explore part of the Ballard Neighborhood, but mostly introduce you to the fantastic Ballard Farmer's Market. You'll have ample time to shop and explore all of the bounty this market has to give.
It's a year-round outdoor Sunday market filled with colorful stalls that offer all kinds of seasonal fresh veggies, free-range eggs, poultry, wild fish, artisan cheeses, honey, bakery goods, orchard fruits, home-grown teas, wines and much more.
We think it's a wonderful urban nature event.
We'll take a two-mile walk through the Ballard neighborhood and end at the market to browse and shop. Depending on our pace allow 2 to 2.5 hours. The terrain is mostly asphalt, so wear comfy shoes.) Tennis shoes work great.
Our intent for these walks are really more about discovery and connection with nature in an urban setting than fitness. The exercise is just a bonus! And, just so you know, it's not a formal tour, we explore right along with you.
