    5 Things to Try at the Boulder Farmers Market

    Established nearly 30 years ago by a handful of local farmers, the Boulder Farmers Market will fill your belly and soul with happiness. With nearly 150 vendors, it’s a top visitor attraction and a weekly tradition for residents.

    When It Happens:

    Saturdays, 8am-2pm (First Saturday in April through the Saturday before Thanksgiving)
    Wednesdays, 4-8pm (First Wednesday in May through the first Wednesday in October)

    1. Meet the Farmers 

    Only vendors who grow what they sell are permitted. They tend to be a friendly lot, so feel free to ask questions and admire their crops.

    2. Redefine “Food Court” Food

    Handmade tamales, steamed dumplings, stone-fired pizza and fresh-pressed juices await in the market’s prepared foods area. Grab a plate and take a seat at the tables or in a shady spot next to Boulder Creek.

    4. Stop and Smell the Roses

    Farm-grown flower stands bring a riot of color to the market. Pause for a sniff or a photo, and maybe pick up a bunch for your hotel room.

    5. Jam Out

    Local bands are often heard striking up some tunes in the food court area. Sit back and watch, or simply listen as the melody floats through the festival-like atmosphere.
