  • This is "the" place to be Saturday mornings! There is the regular organic farmers market fare; veggies, fruits, even meats, etc., but then there's the food court with tons of ethnic offerings and then...  more »
  • Awesome produce, meat, goods and hot food! We ate lunch and picked up some groceries. This was a very pleasant experience if you happen to be in the area while it's going on.  more »
  • We make it a point to visit lot of farmers markets. The variety in this medium size market isn’t really great. We went on a very beautiful day so it may have biased us. But I can not recommend this ma...  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.
