    Boulder Farmers Market

    Jim Smailer at the Boulder Cork

    Jim SmailerJim Smailer is the executive chef at the Boulder Cork. Growing up in Pennsylvania, his family had huge gardens, and he's always had an affection for the sea and fresh produce. He has been buying from Boulder's farms and growers for the last 32 years. He's been known to barter with a farmer for cherry tomatoes and bring them to the restaurant on his bicycle. He lives for food and is passionate about it.

    My Perfect Day in Boulder:
    • Make an early morning trip to the Boulder Farmers' Market. Be there when they open to get first dibs.
    • Continue walking through downtown historic Boulder to brunch or lunch at The Kitchen. They do a great job, and I appreciate their philosophy.
    • Take a bird-watching hike through the White Rocks Nature Preserve east of Boulder. It's an easy 30- to 60-minute hike. Look for the northern kingfishers and the bald eagles as you enjoy the amazing panoramic view of the Front Range. 
    • Have dinner at the Boulder Cork
