2019 Boulder County Winter Farmers Market

We are blessed with an abundance of fresh Colorado-grown produce throughout spring and summer, but as the daylight hours begin to wane, fields begin to go dormant. Fortunately for Boulder residents, we have access to a wonderful winter farmers market with myriad vendors selling produce, artisan goods, and more. Here’s what you need to know.

When and Where

On Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8, the Boulder County Winter FarmersMarket will open up at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. From 9 am – 3 pm, take your time ambling amongst the multitude of vendors in search of season veggies, handmade textiles, and personal care products. Here’s a complete map of the fairgrounds, parking lots, and facilities.

About the Vendors 

This year’s winter farmers market boasts 100 Colorado vendors each with their own unique items. Area farmers will boast organic produce that you can take home and cook into a beautiful, winter stew. Ranchers offer grass-fed beef, free-range poultry, and specialty meats not found in typical grocery stores. Booths run by local vintners, cheesemakers, and bakers provide tasty samples and offer plenty of potential stocking stuffers.

Boulder’s burgeoning artistic community has grown to include painters, sculptors, woodworkers, and more. Purchase an original work of art or a beautifully crafted piece of jewelry. In addition, the market features an abundance of personal care products, each one made with the finest ingredients. Peruse the aisles of lovingly handmade goods, fresh produce, and skincare products.

The Boulder County Winter Farmers Market makes for a great family event as there are numerous activities for children throughout the day. Snack on food truck fare, listen to live music, and enjoy free admission, but please leave your furry friends at home.

Boulder County Farmers Market Ethos

In the mid-1980’s, farmers throughout Boulder County came together with the intent of selling fresh, seasonal produce to the community. Originally, booths were in the back of a few old pick-up trucks sporadically dealing fruits and veggies when available. Now, the Boulder County Farmers Market has expanded to Longmont, Lafayette, Boulder, Denver, and the Seeds Café, located in the Boulder Public Library.

The market is a producer-only market, meaning every vendor creates what they sell. This helps foster sustainable, local agriculture practices and supports our state’s agrarian economies. Since 2005, every BCFM has signed up to be zero-waste. Moreover, visitors to the Winter Farmers Market can feel good about helping the local agricultural and artisanal communities year-round, instead of only during prime growing season.
