 Boulder Farmer's Market

  

One of the best Farmers Markets I've ever been to is Boulder's, the largest in Colorado.  The Market focuses on locally grown vegetables, fruit, meats, flowers and wines, sold by the farmers that actually produce them.  There's also great selection of prepared and cooked food you can enjoy right at the market from local bakers and restaurateurs.  This market definitely focuses on food, with very few if any crafts for sale, a noteable difference from many of the Farmers Markets I patronized in Colorado.

 

The Boulder Market began in 1987 and  has expanded over the years to include a second site (Longmont).  There are over 150 vendor participants.  The Market is held Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.

 

The following photos reflect what was available in Colorado the first Saturday in September.

I love markets...and the history they embody, from those like Basel that have been in the same place for hundreds of years to the 19th century enclosed markets that many cities developed (and some kept!) but I have an especially good feeling about markets like this one, and our New York Greenmarkets that have revived the market tradition in places where it was nearly gone, and made a success of it.

 

What a long sentence!

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

What an extravaganza of colours !

That's the type of market I love. All the fresh produce in front of the counter so you can select your own choice.

When I'm on the road touring I have to be reminded that I cant cook all those delicious vegetables.

There's a few there I couldn't name - never seen them before !

Wonderful display !
