Highland getting its own farmers' market
Highland residents are about to get their own farmers' market.
Starting on June 6, and running perhaps as late as October 31, a farmers' market will take over the 1500 block of Boulder Street from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday. That's the stretch of street right outside Lola and Vita, and right around the corner from Little Man Ice Cream.
"The neighborhood association has been talking about a market for over a year now," says market manager Nicole Jarman. "There is no longer a farmers' market in northwest Denver, and I feel markets truly bring a strong sense of community to a neighborhood. This is also a neighborhood that is incredibly supportive of their local environment - eating local, buying local, supporting local businesses. They are excited to walk down the street, see their neighbors and do their weekly shopping."
And buying local produce. While the lineup of vendors is not yet set, Jarman says she plans to feature only Colorado products.
