Our Ballard Farmers Market Gleaners team collected over 18,000 lbs of food this year!

Ballard Farmers Market gleaners collected over 18,000 pounds of produce for the Ballard Food Bank in 2022! Our single largest collection was a whopping 1,379 pounds. While we aren’t expecting to have hauls that are quite that big this winter, 2023 sign-ups are now open and we could definitely use some volunteers in January and February. As always, you can sign up to glean via the link below. Our Gleaning project is a great way to make new friends (volunteers and farmers alike!), support our local food economy, and provide high quality produce to those in need.
