Fremont is one of my favorite places on earth, and it was so great too get back there now that spring has officially sprung. We love walking along the Burke-Gilman trail and watching the boats go by, seeing the draw bridge go up and down, and picking wildflowers to add to any bouquets we buy at the market.

But, the biggest draw to Fremont for me is the Fremont Sunday Market, especially in spring and summer. While technically the European-style street market is hopping year-round, in the summer the Fremont Sunday Market is so much bigger, has more food trucks, and the hours are longer. This year the market is celebrating their 27th anniversary helping treasure hunters and vendors connect to support small businesses. Plus, you can buy Seattle Pops popsicles and not look crazy.
At the market, you will find all sorts of handmade goodies, artisan crafts, fruits, veggies, artists, and resalvage/vintage booths. The market is also a great place to buy veggie starts to get your own garden started, or you can buy fresh fruits and veggies locally as they come into season. In the covered area of the market, you will find what resembles a flea market, as well as one of our favorite Seattle photographers who sets up a booth there nearly every Sunday. He's been taking our pictures since 2006 or so, and we have quite the collection. My son looks forward to going to the market every chance he gets because they always have a good selection of cars, trucks, ships, and random finds that my son considers treasures. For instance, this Star Wars ship that he fell in love with and flew all the way home.
