The little sister to our downtown location, the Ballard store is in the heart of Old Ballard on Market Street. Many of the employees (as well as our management staff) grew up or live in Ballard. It’s the perfect blend of peaceful, residential area (with a Norwegian flair), and young, hip culture.
Petite and pleasant, this store is a nice change from the bustling, tourist-intense pace of our downtown Seattle location. In Ballard, regulars come by in the morning on jogs, dog walks, or to get their morning caffeine at one of the many coffee shops.
We are located in right in the heart of Ballard, so we get to be a part of the many community celebrations like the weekly Farmer’s Market, the annual Norwegian Independence Day festival (Syttende Mai), and the Ballard Seafood Festival.
Since we’re just a stone’s throw from the famous Ballard Locks, one of our favorite things to do is grab a bag of our mouthwatering Hawaiian Salted Caramel and head down to canal to watch the salmon runs and even sometimes catch a glimpse of one of the boats from Deadliest Catch. Sometimes, though, it’s just nice to sit at the table in our huge front windows and watch people walk past.
Next time you’re in Ballard, stop on by to experience our passion for popcorn and try a sample or three! Vi håper å se deg snart! (That’s “We hope to see you soon” in Norwegian.)
