Boulder Farmer’s Market Opened Already!

About one block south of the Pearl Street Mall we get a bi-weekly treat called the Boulder Farmer’s Market. Finally it’s back again!

It’s specifically located on 13th St. between Canyon  and Arapahoe, adjacent to Central Park.

Every Saturday morning from 8:00 am until 2:00 in the afternoon, you have a chance to purchase locally grown produce, and lots of other great local products.The first market of 2009 was last Saturday April 4th. You can catch the Boulder Farmer’s Market on Saturdays in 2009 through November 7th according to their official website.

The Boulder County Farmers’ Market takes pride in bringing you locally grown vegetables, meats, fruits, flowers, plants, gourmet cheeses and wines sold by the farmers that produce them. While you’re purchasing your fresh vegetables and fruits (many of them organically grown) enjoy a tasty pastry from local bakeries or enjoy a meal created by local chefs.

I even once had my pocket knife sharpened by some really cool older man who knew I was in a hurry, and told me it would only take ‘a New York minute’. The kids love the honey sticks, and we usually take a walk on the creek path as part of our outing.

Call or email me to share some of your favorite thoughts about the Boulder Farmer’s Market. Or… if you’re thinking of moving, I’d love to hear from you about that also!

You can also catch the farmers market on Wednesdays from 4:00 pm until about 8:00 pm starting on May 6th. The Wednesday evening markets are scheduled to run through October 7th in 2009.

One of the things many visitors overlook on the weekends in Downtown Boulder is the free parking. While you still have to pay to park curbside on Saturdays, and the nearby parking lots can get full quickly, there are several multi-story parking garages within easy walking distance from the 13th & Canyon area located all around the Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall.

Oh, I forgot the important part, the parking in the garages is free on weekends. On those warm summer days when your car will be 140 degrees inside when you return… it’s a whole different story in the garage.

There’s always something new and exciting to be found at the farmer’s market and it’s a great opportunity to run into people you know. Whether you’ve been in Boulder for 2 months, or 20 years, the chances are great that you’ll bump into an old friend, or probably make a new one.

This is one of the local events that makes Boulder feel like a small town again, and keeps us connected to the community in several ways.

Call or email me if you’re ready to make an even stronger connection to the community and step up to buy a home in the area. I’d be honored to hear from you and to have the chance to meet you to see if I’m a good match to help you with your move. And if for some reason you have to leave and are selling your home, let’s talk soon so you can get a firm grip on the true market value of your home before it goes on the market in these metamorphic times.
