  • Best place to find fresh produce I cannot buy anywhere else, pricy but worth it plus items that are hard to find. No dogs allowed which is great since it is a vibrant scene. Excellent bands and food truck options. Always find parking close to market as cars turn over quickly.
  • Best market anywhere! Always something exciting going on. Food to eat, food to take home and make. Park, creek, and library so close by. Always busy but still tons of decent parking!
  • Just a wonderful way to spend a Saturday. A nice selection of vendors with fantastic quality produce, a smattering of various artisans and specialty vendors, and a happening food court; the archetypical farmer's market in my eyes.
  • Definitely a must-visit attraction in Boulder. Lots of food options for lunch. Good collection of vendors highlighted by meat and fruit/vegetables, but including other goods like honey, baked goods, kombucha, coffee, and the like. Can get very busy on nice days but you can grab food and walk down the creek a bit. Usually have live music in the food truck area. Prices are completely insane, more than any high end farmers I've been to in any city so we generally just get lunch.
  • It's a tight space and many vendors can't get into this location, however, we love certain vendors here. Our favorites are Aspen Moon Farm for hard to find veggies or herbs (though the prices are higher), Hazel Dell Mushrooms, Farmer John for compost, and a few others. But it's tough, you taste the wine once and you pass by it every week after, get a jar of honey and it lasts months (the way and frequency we use it. But I think the most annoying part about the Boulder Farmers Market is you HAVE to get there by 8am, otherwise you won't get a spot. Also, some vendors like Black Cat, are stuck up and won't answer questions for rarely seen veggies like "What do you use this in?" or "What does it taste like", we've even held out money for over a minute and they just don't care. Others are higher priced than what they should be and going to Louisville's (Saturday @ 9am) or Erie (Thursday at 5pm) are much more relaxed, inviting, and you can actually talk to the vendors instead of being rushed in and out. By far, our favorite vendor to eat at is Cafe Aion because of the careful craft he delivers each week. It's always something different, well executed Paella, and the flavors are spot on and for roughly $9 two people can share. Other stands, $12 will get a meal for one, and even then they skimp on areas they shouldn't.. You can taste the difference if you try each one. Comparing Boulders Farmers Market to Longmonts (both are BCFM and the same time), we like going to Longmont. More vendors in a more attractive space. Boulders works if your going once or twice, but it leaves much to be desired.
