Governor John Hickenlooper has proclaimed August “Colorado Proud Month,” and today you can show your Colorado pride by digging into this state's produce — both at a famous farmers' market, and at a Boulder restaurant. Here are the details on today's fresh events.
In celebration of Colorado Proud Month, Colorado Proud Choose Colorado Pop-Up Picnics are popping up all over the Front Range. Today the picnic series will sprout up at the Boulder Farmers' Market
from 4 to 8 p.m., serving up free samples and plenty of information. For details, including a list of future picnics, go to colorado.gov
The Lyons Farmette
and chef Alec Schuler of Arugula
will team up for a six-course, farm-to-table dinner from 6 to 9:30 p.m. today at the Farmette. The menu will be cooked up from ingredients sourced almost completely from Lyons Farmette and within Boulder County; dishes include chilled Rocky Ford melon soup, braised Spring Tree Farm rabbit risotto, Colorado Wagyu beef filet mignon and more. Reserve your spot, $90, and view the whole menu here
