Shop local for the holidays

Boulder County Farmers Markets

We have arrived at the most magical time of the year. No, we’re not talking about fall season (although we love where your head is at), but instead the holiday season. After all, what’s the point of the holidays if it’s not a time to indulge in delicious food?

We invite you to share in some of the magic of this season by joining us at the Winter Market this Saturday and Sunday at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont. More than 100 local farmers, ranchers, producers and artisans will sell fresh Colorado produce during holiday shopping.

This weekend’s produce selection will include apples, winter squash, onions, carrots, potatoes, greens, radishes, ginger, garlic and more. We will also have local meats such as pork, beef and lamb – all raised on Colorado pastures.

Diesel up half-shop

Do you carry around those bags of purple cabbage that you make kimchi for knee sticks? Grab a wood-fired pizza from Lenin’s Pizza, treat yourself to Pupusas Familia, or sample a samosa from Susan’s Samosas. And what would it be a Winter Market without hot cocoa or a holiday latte from Fair Isle Coffee?
