This means that spring is really here, right? No more freak snow. No more icy sidewalks unless your son just happened to have dropped a popsicle.
It’s official: the Boulder County Farmers’ Market is OPEN for 2014! And yeah, we missed the grand opening by a few weeks (we’ve been traveling, writing about BBQ…you know, important stuff). But if you missed it like we did, it’s time to grab those reusable shopping totes and head on down this Saturday to the Boulder County Farmers Market. There’s good gettin’ to be gotten and it’s just the beginning of the season.
If you’re new to Boulder, you can hit up the farmers market every Saturday from 8AM until 2PM. There’s also a sister farmers market in Longmont held on Saturdays from 8AM to 1PM. The Boulder location is on 13th Street between Arapahoe and Canyon, adjacent to Boulder’s Central Park. The Longmont market is held at the Boulder County Fairgrounds on Nelson Road. You can check out hours, locations, and maps right here.
And if you’re wondering about the kinds of treasures you can expect to find at the market, you can see an entire list of this year’s vendors right on the farmers market website. They list everything from the vendor’s name to the vendor’s website if they have one. This way, you can do a little pre-sleuthing prior to your trip, plot your shopping trip, and see if your favorite vendors have returned for the 2014 season.
And parking can be a beast for farmers market days. We recommend walking and bikes, but you can also park in one of the many City of Boulder parking facilities. Just note that you will be paying the ful parking rate because lots aren’t free on Saturdays.
We’ll see you at the market! Happy shopping.
