N.W. Market St., Seattle, WA 98107, United States

This northwestern Seattle neighborhood is known for its Scandinavian, fishing-village past, but the Salmon Bay community is reinventing itself as an up-and-coming shopping, bar, and restaurant district. Cafes and artisan bakeries fill former mill and factory space, and boutiques catering to pampered pets, design lovers, and urban sophisticates populate several blocks of the main drags, Ballard Ave. NW and NW Market Street. The area around their intersection includes the Ballard Avenue Historical District, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its collection of late-19th Century buildings (residential and commercial).
