The celebration of spring is sure to be an exciting day as farmers and artisans gather to offer the newest harvest and crafts.

About Boulder County Farmers Markets

Boulder County Farmers Market has been a community mainstay since the mid-1980s. This nonprofit organization aims to support local farmers and provide residents with access to the freshest local food. This is a producer-only market, meaning that the farmers and ranchers have produced everything they’re selling. The market began in Boulder, and spread to the Longmont community in 2003. The Boulder farmers market location has been recognized as one of the top 50 farmers markets in the country by Cooking Light, and also operates Seeds Library Cafe at the Boulder Public Library. In addition to serving as the link between farmers and residents, BCFM gives back to the community through the implementation of Harvest Bucks. This program helps residents using SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) double the value of their dollars when shopping for fresh food at the market.

The Boulder County Farmers Market is a beloved presence within and beyond the Boulder community.
