First trip to the Farmer’s Market

5 Oct

The Boulder County Farmer’s Market pops up every Saturday from April 3 to November 6, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., on 13th Street between Arapahoe and Canyon right next to Central Park. The market is just a few short blocks from the bustling Pearl Street Mall, where you are just as likely to see a skinny Jamaican pack himself into his clear soapbox, as you are to see a six-foot shaggy dog/man barking a passers by.

"Making a living in a box is tough. Stay in school."

This market was jam-packed with people, and with good reason. There were bountiful harvests of produce everywhere, and lots of samples to go around, which doesn’t hurt when you’re broke as a joke like me. All the things you can imagine falling out of a Thanksgiving cornucopia were there with some friends; fat pumpkins, speckled corn, peppers in every color of the rainbow…bellisimo.

Ehhh...what's up Doc?

Colorful Sweet Peppers

Fall is in the flowers
