The 2010 famers' market season started today in Boulder -- and this year, it's not even snowing. I'm heading there now.

      Typical early-season -- but w/ decent weather, breezy but sunny in late morning. People just appreciative of ts return. Venue not yet at full capacity, and fresh produce still VERY limited. Good chance to stock up on local salsa, preserves, popcorn, etc. Daily Camera's website includes a link to a day-one video (http://www.dailycamera.com/news/ci_14...). The paper also reported that organizers are considered a year-round market.They already do indoor pre-Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas one-day markets. Stay tuned.

        I wanted to go but it was so windy in Lafayette that I was afraid it would be miserable. Hoping to get there next weekend. Thanks for the report!

          It was horrible windy in the morning, in fact the vendors on the north side (not sure of the name of the street, but runs east and west north of Arapahoe, lost tents, lots of broken pots and platters too. I was impressed by the seedlings and starter pots offered, by the time we got done walking Pearl street, close to 1:30, they were selling them at 75 Cents each, great deals. Food court area was packed at lunch, you had to crawl over people sitting and muching when trying to reach the porta potty. Great to see so many people out supporting the local community.
