Colorado Produce Stars at the Market and on the Table Today

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 and Tangerine 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.
