It will surprise nobody that Boulder’s farmers’ market is excellent—and the real-life experience completely delivers on what you’d imagine, as you’ll find everyone from yuppie moms serving gluten-free granola to hippies selling vegetables to an old-school beekeeper who’s been selling honey sticks to generations of Boulder kids. In the fall, you’ll also find gorgeous peaches from Western Colorado. For travelers who aren’t interested in a full haul of produce, check out the prepared foods area, where there’s live music on Saturday mornings, and a beer garden on Wednesdays (the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is right here, too, for a cultural diversion). Favorite vendors include The Orange Tent (order the eggs benedict over rice and the iced chai), Amazing Corn Tamales, and Tres Pupusas.
