The Boulder Farmer’s Market started last Saturday and goes until about mid-November. If you are looking for me on Saturday mornings you will know where to find me. I love everything about the market: the people, the vendors, the produce, the prepared food, the samples, the environment… It is a great way to start off a Saturday morning.
Since it is still early in the season the produce is limited to green lettuce, some tomatoes, mushrooms, and few other things. However, there is a lot of really cool local companies that come out to show off their products. Everything from baked goods to fermented kimchi.
What makes this Farmer’s Market so great is the prepared food. However, if you wanted you could fill up on samples from the vendors. In the prepared food section of the Market there are vendors from local restaurants and such. Last year I found myself getting the Vietnamese spring rolls every week. So this year I promised myself to try something new every week. This week I got dumplings, but my other options are pupusas (I also get these frequently), breakfast sandwich, gyro, pizza, Indian food, tamales, and the list goes on.
Here are some pictures from todays market. I left the market today with Jerusalem artichokes, whole wheat tortillas, and raw cow cheese.
