About Us

Boulder County Farmers Markets is the brainchild of a group of local farmers, who came together with their vision of a local market in the mid-1980s. What started with a few tables of produce loaded off the backs of pickup trucks has evolved into robust destination markets in Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Denver and online. The handful of inspired farmers has expanded to include more than 150 local vendors, hosting the longest market season in the State of Colorado.

Alongside that growth, the markets firmly maintain the farmers’ original vision. The nonprofit Boulder County Farmers Markets are producer-only markets: our farmers and ranchers grow what they sell. Today, the markets serve as community gathering events, provide nourishment to neighbors, boost sustainable agriculture and support the local economy. The bounty of local fruits and vegetables coexist with decorative plants and beautiful flowers. The markets feature everything from locally sourced crafts, potted seedlings for the home gardener, prepared foods from local bakeries, gourmet cheese, small-batch honey and artisan salsas.

 Boulder County Farmers Markets are zero-waste events, in accordance with a county-wide resolution in 2005. Our markets also support robust food access programs, including a WIC Farmers Market program and Double Up Food Bucks.
