I love winter in Boulder, and as summer events wind down I always get a little giddy with anticipation, however watching fall flicker away is always bittersweet. If you're reminiscing for summer on this warm fall day head over to the Farmer's Market for their last Wednesday night of the season. Cool fall evenings provide a unique ambiance for the market as the sun sets over the Flatirons. The next few days may get cold and wet so grab some vegetables, locally raised beef and create a stew to come home to; a couple pumpkins for the front porch and some tea from Dushanbe Tea House will keep you warm until you get there.
The market is now the only local farmers' markets to be owned by the participating growers. The market does everything they can to make sure vendors sell produce grown in Boulder County and there is nothing sold that is grown or produced outside of Colorado. The Farmer's Market has been operating on 13th st. adjacent to Central Park for over 20 years. With city and state support, students from CU's President Leadership Program researched other markets and helped make the present site selection. It has since become a Boulder tradition, a fabulous venue for fresh produce and a great place to mingle with friends and neighbors.
In two weeks, on October 17, the last arts event will be held in conjunction with the market though market itself will continue on Saturday mornings until November 7th.
