It could be argued that there is nothing better than walking through a colorful, festive and energetic farmers market on a crisp, Colorado summer morning (add a cup of coffee and it’s literally our version of heaven!)  Farmers markets are abundant in Colorado, as is the fresh produce, local artisan made products, delightful baked goods and tasty snacks and live entertainment.  While the growing season may not be long in Colorado, the state has an abundance of opportunities to catch some truly wonderful markets operating during the spring, summer and fall.  Read on as we share some of our favorites.
