  • Beat grocery option in Ballard. Great produce, big selection of prepared food and an impressive selection of beer and wine!
  • Leave plenty of time for wonderment and debate if you plan on visiting the beer section.
  • Try the soups!
  • Best produce in Ballard.
  • Great hard to find produce like Chinese broccoli and Chinese long beans.
  • Friendly staff and dwarven dungeons make this grocery a must visit!
  • Great beer selection (bring your growler), great meat and produce. Hidden gem: bulk herbs & spices.
  • Some employees are rude and snooty here. One would barely let me use a digital scale, another in the sandwiches dept was loud and dismissive. New Seasons Market and Trader Joes a lot friendlier.
  • They charge a $5-$7+ markup for Willamette Valley pies (which are normally $9-$11 each direct from Willamette Valley). Expensive but yum.
  • Some folks are claiming that Ballard market has a great beer section. Only true if you only like IPA beers. The beer section virtually has nothing but IPA beers nothing else.
  • Beautiful vanilla beans found here! But they are limited to 6 per person at a time.
  • Beer selection is great, and the produce section is on point.
  • Prices so close to okay, you'll want to believe it's all good.
  • Kind of pricy
  • They have a small but quite diverse bulk area, an excellent place to go if you only need a few things.
  • Microbrews.
  • Not the rotisserie chicken. It's deceptively tasty looking but dry inside.
  • They carry frozen pizza dough made locally :) Win!
  • SNOBS! Especially the expresso bar staff
  • Most knowledgeable produce staff in Seattle. If their vast selection is missing something, try requesting it.
