Ballard Market

August 4, 2013

The Ballard Farmers Market is one of my favorites. Veraci Pizza, mini-donuts, and plenty of amazing produce. ┬áNot to mention my two dessert stops last week: Pete’s Perfect Toffee and Deborah’s Pies. ┬áPete’s Toffee was indeed perfect – and I have a very high standard for toffee.

There were quite a few flavors to choose from, including spicy chili, coconut, and espresso, but I went with the – you guessed it – dark chocolate. Rich, a little salty, crunchy, buttery, and ohhhh just perfect. He also sells containers of crumbled toffee, perfect for an ice cream topping.

Second stop was Deborah’s Homemade Pies. I went straight for the strawberry rhubarb mini-pie, which I took home, warmed up, and ate with ice cream…

Loved it!! Crust was buttery deliciousness and the filling was tart (the way rhubarb should be!) but perfect with the ice cream. They had all kinds of pies, in several of different sizes. I’d go back to try a peach pie!
