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.

I’m thinking of participating in this great sounding event. Would you support me in this charitable cause?

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.

While visiting on a Saturday morning we stocked up on red leaf and butter lettuce, fresh Spinach and Easter Egg radishes. And noticed there is ample bicycle parking at the Boulder Farmers Market

Date Night

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.
