Historic York Neighborhood Diner & Corner Store

Nelson’s Market has been in operation as a grocery serving Bellingham’s York neighborhood since 1895. We’ve also been known as York Addition Meat Market, Marlin’s Cafe and ‘A Stationary Float in the Parade of Life.’ Today we're a breakfast hot-spot widely touted for our signature chicken and waffles (available all day!).

Need a quick bite? Grab a breakfast burrito, an ice cream cone or a snack from our small grocery, or call ahead to place your takeout order.
