It was a gloomy second weekend at the Union Station Farmers Market, but despite on-and-off showers throughout the morning, Denver locals weren’t dissuaded from coming out to support the growers. There was excitement over the Boulder County Farmers Markets deciding to launch in May this season instead of June like the last two years. Now in its third season, the downtown Denver market has several vendors returning, displaying and selling produce along with other edible goods. Local farmers share what they’ve grown and local restaurateurs sell baked goods and warm to-go food items. While perusing each booth, market-goers may even get the chance to bump baskets with a chef or two — this is, after all, where many of Denver’s seasonal menus are inspired.
The Union Station Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October 20. For a full list of farms and other vendors, check out the website.
