Boulder Farmer’s Market

Denver, CO — With just two weeks until the longest day of the year, summer plants and produce are in full swing of growth. Colorado’s wet spring has provided local farms with delicious pickings and now they are coming to our cities for purchase! KOSI has broken down some of our favorite farmers markets, complete with parking tips, addresses and photos!

City Park – Located next to East High School, just off Colfax Ave at 2551 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80206 You can park along the several side streets or test your luck and get a spot in Carla Madison Recreation Center. City Park Farmers market offers an experience beyond fresh produce, eggs and meat. But also, vegan junk food, a plethora of food trucks and other naturally made household items for sale. Plus there are often community reps available to help you sin up to be involved in Denver’s sustainable communities. Saturdays 8 am – 1 pm

Cherry Creek – Located across the street from whole foods and adjacent to the Cherry Creek Mall at the corner of 1st Ave. & University Blvd, this farmers market supplies large parking lots for attendees. Complete with live music, the animal friendly Cherry Creek Farmers Market also features pop-up shops like boutiques! Saturdays 9 am – 2pm

Boulder – Located across the street from Boulder High and touching Dushanbee Tea House, this farmers market is no dogs allowed. However, only in the market, otherwise it is connected to Boulders Central Park where dogs and humans-alike can roam free. From vegan ice cream to homemade jalapeño mango salsa, this farmers market is easy to make a day out of. Along the trip is Boulder’s Museum of Contemporary Art and just down stream you’ll find Boulderites tubing down Boulder creek. You can pay to park at Boulder high or test your luck with provided parking behind Dushanbee Tea House or take advantage of the Flatiron views and park down the street. Saturdays 8 am – 2 pm

Union Station – Although this may be the least accessible as far as parking goes, you can’t go wrong with parking the car and exploring the city. While you are, make your way over to Union Station and check out the Farmer’s market. With a preset music lineup, this weekend you can expect live music from Christopher Ryan and Mark Brut. And if you can’t find a bite to eat in the market among the fresh strawberries, herbs and ripe Tomato’s you can pop in to the many breakfast spots surrounding the area like Snooze. Saturdays 9 am – 1 pm.

University Hills – Located in the University Hills Plaza, at 2500 S Colorado Blvd, Denver 80222 parking for this market is plentiful. From popsicles to seafood, this market offers a wide array of product including spirits, roses and crafts. Saturdays 9-1pm.
