Bellingham to Mt Baker

We're going to Mt. Baker (near Glacier) for an extended weekend. Is there anything in Bellingham or nearby that's worth trying out?

  1. Northfork brewery is worth a stop. Its on the way up to the mountain. It's been a few years since I've stopped in but from what i remember it was a great Brewery. Lots of good hoppy beer and good pizza.

    1. in deming, between bellingham and mt. baker and on the mt. baker road, is "the people's grocery", a 1920's roadside store run by local hippies (remember hippies?) that features superb sandwiches - some on home-baked breads with locally produced vegies, meats and cheeses. they also sell local produce in season and a large array of handicrafts. they lost their license to sell gasoline when they refused to remove their antique gas pumps. a small public park/playground across the road makes for a pleasant picnic stop

      1. re: howard 1st

        I hear D'Anna's is good and I enjoyed a great dinner at Fino last summer (both in Bellingham). Often when I'm doing just a quick trip through B'ham, I'll pick up a few things for a picnic or antipasti at home...stops include the farmer's market, Quel Fromage, Avenue Bread, and Purple Smile. A Mallard ice cream stop is also a favorite.
