Catch Nearly Last Farmers' Market This Year

Sure we're back down to super chilly temps after a balmy 40 degrees yesterday, but time is growing short for our last Boulder Farmers' Market season in downtown Boulder, and it sounds like you might catch some wonderful produce harvested in a rush as our crazy deep freeze arrived. With the Colorado Dance Company onstage, I do hope they get to wear some cute little parkas and lots of leg warmers! Here are the details from the Market:

Don't Miss the Final Markets of the Season! 
2 more markets in Boulder plus Winter Market 

We hope you're as excited as we are for the market this weekend!
The snow has arrived, marking the end of the growing season for most outdoor crops on the Front Range. Many of our farmers have harvested the last of their crops and will have plenty at the market this weekend:
 potatoes, radishes, apples, turnips, mushrooms, spinach, carrots, onions, garlic, kale, arugula, winter squash and locally raised beef, lamb and chicken eggs. It's looking like it will be nice and chilly, so look forward to grabbing a chai or hot chocolate from Silver Canyon, baked good or warm prepared food to keep you cozy while you're shopping! See below for specials. 

We still have two weeks left of the market season downtown Boulder on 13th Street. Then we will be back to the Boulder County Fairgrounds for our 8th Annual Winter Market on December 6 and 7 from 9am-3pm
