Farmers Market Saturday morning
Bob Wells | May 3, 2015
And we do mean morning. The time to be there is 8 am sharp. Not 8:10, not 9 and certainly not 11. At 8 am the mood is right, the real food lovers are there, the farmers are just setting up and looking ahead toward the day.
The scarce and well-priced items can go fast. Miller Farms still has some perfect asparagus. The “lamb lady” has ground lamb suitable for an awesome bolognese. The tortillas and salsa are the real thing.
After your astute produce shopping is done, the long breakfast tables aren’t crowded yet. Laudisio’s pizza oven is hot — or maybe you’d prefer polenta with a perfect pomodoro sauce. The Orange Tent is ready to make you a resplendent eggs benedict.
Set your alarm or wake up with the birds. Put on your Boulder-casual best. The hour of eight draws nigh. The Farmers Market is waiting.
And right. We just had to snap a few photos; the people were that cute.
