Farmers markets are thriving in Boulder County! At least once a week throughout the summer [and in some cases into the fall], you can find farmers’ bounties on full display and in market places in our communities. These are special days when residents look forward to purchasing straight from farmers and skipping the grocery stores. In a time when farmers markets seem to be declining in popularity, Boulder area farmers markets are thriving and have seen a consistent growth year over year.
Boulder County farmers market are each unique and reflect each local community. Though you can always find in season produce and fruits, you will also find artists, live music, prepared foods, alcohol and much more.
