Ballard Merchants & Restaurant Group

The mission of the Ballard Merchants & Restaurant Group (BMRG) is to provide support for local businesses through knowledge sharing, organization of seasonal events aimed to help drive sales, collaborative marketing for brick-and-mortar businesses, and access to available government resources.

The BMRG works to bring the neighborhood merchant and restaurant community together to exchange ideas and best practices and ensures that these businesses are informed about critical issues, events, and activities that impact our neighborhood. As a note, BMRG is not intended to be a networking or business development group.  

The BMRG is available to retail or restaurant businesses within the Ballard area (see map). For some Ballard Alliance events and programs, participation may be limited to businesses within the Ballard Improvement Area footprint (see map).
