NileGuide Expert tip:
Wednesdays are usually less crowded but are also full of locals there after work to do their weekly shopping, so the pace is slightly faster. If you want to meander, try checking out the Saturday market...but get there early to avoid the crowds!
A local treasure, this is one of the best farmers' markets around. Almost everything can be found here, from freshly roasted green chilies, to gourmet cheeses and wines, to flowers and plants. Much of the food is organic, and all of it is grown by the people selling it. The Farmers' Market also has a food court with delicious prepared foods, picnic tables, and music. Grab some breakfast or lunch and take it over to Central Park to sit in the grass and watch the people. The Market hosts thousands of Boulderites and visitors every week, some who are there to see the sights and take in the smells, and others who are just there to do their weekly grocery shopping.
