New Leadership At Boulder Farmers Market
The Boulder Farmers Market starts the first Saturday of April. With area farmers utilizing hoop houses, there should be plenty of fresh produce. And while this is the same Boulder Farmers Market as years past, this year there is a new leader at the helm. Brian Coppom took over as Executive Director in October 2013. His first order of business? More fresh farmed goods, less prepared foods.
Dates And Times
The Boulder Farmers Market runs every SATURDAY April 5th, 2014 to November 22nd, 2014 (wow, that sounds far away). Market hours on Saturdays are 8 am to 2 pm. Beginning May 7th, the Boulder farmers market is open every WEDNESDAY. Hours will be 4 pm to 8 pm. The Wednesday market ends on October 1st, 2014.
The Boulder Farmers Market is held at 13th Street and Canyon Boulevard. Nearby landmarks include the bandshell and train (well, there used to be a train on display). Summer time, you can hang out by the creek too.
Saturday Boulder Parking
Public parking garages are free – but NOT city lots on Saturdays. Here is a list of locations to take advantage of free parking:
* 11th & Walnut (Randolph Center) * 11th & Spruce * 15th & Pearl * 10th & Walnut (St Julien Hotel — where I got married btw!!) * 14th & Walnut (RTD Bus Station)
Summertime, my wife and I have found the combination of Bands on the Bricks and The Boulder Farmers Market makes for a great date night. Here is a link to the 2013 line up (I’ll post the new line up as soon as possible). You get the idea though: shop for fresh produce, grab a casual dinner and listen to live music. All while seeing friends and being outdoors in beautiful Boulder Colo.
