Farmers' Market Returns to Downtown!
This past Wednesday marked the season opener of the mid-week Boulder County Farmers' Market. "We grow what we sell!" is the motto at the Farmers' Market and they take pride in bringing you locally grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, plants, gourmet cheeses and wines sold by the farmers that produce them. While you're purchasing your fresh vegetables and fruits (many of them organically grown) enjoy a tasty pastry from local bakeries or a meal created by local chefs.
Over 80 farmers now attend the Boulder event, and as many as 14,000 people attend the market in Downtown Boulder on Saturdays in the height of the season and around 6,000 attend on a Wednesday night. “The Market has become a community icon, a gathering place, a country block in the city.” Market Director Mark Menagh notes and reminds us that the market has a great symbiotic relationship with downtown, “We develop community, and that brings people downtown to the Market as an event, not just to shop for veggies.”
So head on down to 13th street on Saturdays from 8 am to 2 pm and Wednesdays from 4 - 8 pm for the freshest in food and fun, to see your community, and get some great food! www.boulderfarmers.org
