Boulder Farmers Market

Saturday, June 18, 2022, 8am-2pm
Named one of the 10 Best Farmers Markets in the U.S. by USA Today, the Boulder Farmers Market is a fun place to start a Saturday. Established in 1986 by a handful of local farmers looking to sell farm-fresh produce directly to the public, the market is now the largest in Colorado. It is a growers-only market, and shoppers can enjoy seasonal produce, eggs, cheeses, meats, herbs, flowers, wines and gourmet food products. Plus, the market enjoys a lovely setting next to shady Central Park and Boulder Creek, at the doorstep of the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse.
