Just east of Ballard is the quirky neighborhood of Fremont—- Center of the Universe and home to Adobe, Google, and Tableau. Similar to Ballard, there are restaurants and craft cocktail bars, breweries, and easy access to bike trails. There is even a huge troll under the Aurora Bridge. The homes in this area are similar to Ballard but not as many new condos. In the past homes in this area were more affordable and more accessible to a wider variety of people. There are lots of breweries and distilleries located here that offer tastings.
Fremont Farmers Market
Every Sunday year round rain or shine. Check their website to see which GF vendors attend. This one is unique in that in addition to food, up to 200 vendors attend with antiques, collectibles, vintage items, and estate sale treasures.
Eve–I was excited to find this place with healthy and creative food including bone broth. I hope to try it this week.
Caffe Lladro–I believe they started out as part of Uptown Espresso and now they have quite a number of locations all over the Puget Sound area. A rich cup of coffee to start your day. Be sure you have a stash of your own GF items to bring along.
Flying Apron — a gluten free bakery with an emphasis on vegan. Baked goods have a heavier texture.
There are many restaurants in this area that likely can accommodate special diets.
Seattle has a lot of “gluten free” people– so restaurants understand the diet to some degree– but to clarify your risk of possible cross contamination you should ask questions because every place seems to have their own definition. We have successfully dined at most of these places without issue, those we haven’t tried are so noted.
