    Great organic produce, meats, and flowers in addition to honey, salsas, jams and sauces. We got lunch from the paella and empanada stands and enjoyed a picnic in the nearby park. Very family friendly ...  more »

    Runs Wednesday and Saturday's, but we came here in a Saturday. Opens at 8 am or 8:30 am and closes at 2 pm. Bustling with locals, make your way down the farmers market where you can sample a lot of it...  more »

    From what I understood from our land lady, Boulder locals go here to socialize, eat, and buy groceries. My four year old enjoyed the live music and my eight year old liked looking at all the stands wi...  more »

    This is my impression after my first trip to the Boulder County Farmers Market. Disappointed. The vendors were extremely friendly, and are knowledgeable about their products. The atmosphere is relaxing. There are a lot of interesting people to talk to. As a social event the farmers market is terrific! You can play Frisbee, practice yoga, learn about Boulder County Open Spaces, cry about politics, and discuss renewable energy. Unfortunately, I came here to buy my groceries. I have heard, many times, that shopping local is a great idea and that farmers markets are a place for bargains because you're buying directly from the grower. This is not true. Here is what you get for $89.49: Bread, 2 loaves $12.00 1 baked pretzel 4.00 1.6 lbs cherries 14.00 6 cucumbers 5.00 18 radishes 6.00 1 quart cherry tomatoes 8.00 1 10oz bag salad greens 10.00 8oz goat cheese 10.00 1.18 pound beef sausage 11.79 0.72 pound pork sausage 7.20 Fee for buying 'Market Bucks' 1.50 This is probably the least cost effective way of buying groceries that I could possibly imagine, about double of the cost of shopping at Sprouts. Perhaps it will be better in the peak summer season. I'll post an update at that time.

    This was such a fun place to shop for fresh veggies and plants. I love seeing what is in season by what is being sold by the vendors. Today it was clear that rhubarb and radishes are ripe! EBT is accepted, along with credit cards in most booths and of course cash everywhere. I recommend the Vietnamese food (the booth with the crepes) if you're looking for lunch.

    Good selection of fresh fruit and vegetables. Still a lot of booths that have little to do with fresh food, but the balance of farms and independent food products to other is better than most Farmers markets I've been to in the Denver area.

    So many great stands. Fun to walk around (and many free samples!)

    Plenty of vendors - if you can't find it, you don't need it! Everything is top notch & so are the prices. Bring your checkbook.

Where to stay in Boulder

You'll find most of the pricier and more luxurious accommodations in downtown Boulder, but the city offers hotel rooms suitable for every traveler's budget. Stay in the heart of the city if you want quick access to shops and restaurants, but if you're traveling on a limited budget, consider a good value inn a short walk or bicycle ride from downtown. You can also choose to stay in Denver for a wider selection of economical hotels and motels; it's just 30 minutes southeast of Boulder.
