“Great place to grab lunch”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Even if you're not an avid farmers market patron, there's a lot to enjoy here. There were plenty of samples available. I enjoyed some tasty coffee and a great Middle Eastern sandwich. In general, there was a wide variety and lots of friendly buyers and sellers. I addition to available tables and chairs, there is a lawn where you can sit and enjoy your purchases.

“Great Farmer's Market in a Great Location”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

What is lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. I have been to the Des Moines (Iowa) and Madison (Wisconsin) Farmer's markets which are larger, but the Boulder market
offers a healthier variety of produce and made to order foods.

Located conveniently off of the Boulder Creek Path, the market offers some great made to order breakfast items which you can take to the Boulder Bandshell to eat. They best part for me, is the easy way to recycle your food utensils, containers, and food scraps in bins separated as compost, recycling, and food waste. I wish more places, not just farmer's markets employed this method.

“One of Our Favorite Outing in Boulder”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

One of the best Farmer's Markets ever, that is if you are into locally grown organic food and produce actually sold by the people who produced it. There is a wide variety of vendors ranging from produce to meats, honey, wine and flowers. You can even grab a meal or coffee. My favorite stands include the pasta man, mushroom stand, lovely lettuces, Mom's pies, peaches and Berkshire pork. When we are hungry we like the gyoza or the wood fired pizza made on premises. We usually buy a very affordable bouquet of gorgeous flowers on our way out. If you've never been treat yourself to one of Boulder's quintessential experiences. The market is Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

“Colorful, busy, and friendly”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This was not the biggest farmer's market I've been to, but it was very nice, very busy, had lots of variety (vegetables, pies, soaps, flowers, herbs, smoothies, food, live music), and everyone was super friendly. Like most farmer's markets, it was a little pricey, but not more so than the norm
. I would definitely recommend if you are going to be in Boulder on a Wednesday or Saturday.

“FINALLY, DOG BAN IS WORKING”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Many thanks to all the folks who left their pets at home. I enjoyed shopping at the market for the first time in four years. The aisles were not clogged with pets on 10 ft. leashes, their owners all admiring each others pets in a show-and-tell session.
Thanks to all.
