We are so excited to introduce our latest produce highlight of the week, the Belgian endive! This coveted member of the chicory family is brand new to our markets, and we are thrilled to have it. Known in Belgium by the nickname "white gold," Belgian endives are a Western European export, the majority of which come from, perhaps unsurprisingly, Belgium. They are beloved for their tender, 'creamy' leaves and mild flavor. Belgian endives can be tricky to grow, which is why they are so rare at market, but our own Kirsop Farm was able to successfully cultivate them! Give them a try roasted or in a salad with goat cheese and figs. #NeighborhoodFarmersMarkets #BengianEndives #WhiteGold #NewKidInTown #WelcomeToMarket #FavoriteVeggie #Chickory #GrownInWashington #SupportYourLocalFarmer #LocalProduce ...

Invitation: Vivian Belcher Memorial Bench Dedication Ceremony Sunday, Jan 26, 1PM image003Greetings Staff and friends of Vivian, There will be a brief but poignant ceremony to dedicate a memorial bench for Vivian Belcher, Ballard’s beloved Administrative Secretary that passed away on January 26, 2019. The bench will be a place to rest, reflect, and renew while enjoying the sunshine, chatting with a friend, or waiting for a ride. The bench will be located outside the south side door entrance that Vivian used as a primary entrance. This area under the tree was also her command center during our emergency preparedness drills. She would have loved the location. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony in the main lobby of Ballard HS. Hope to see you there or if not, we hope to see you enjoying the bench sometime in the future. ... See MoreSee Less
