Spring is in the air and the open markets are popping up

My wife was pointed to the Ballpark Market by friend of hers. We missed the first weekend, and were actually supposed to be out of town this weekend. As luck would have it however our plans to be in Albuquerque (thank goodness) were cancelled.

map_for_web_pink_bg.gif We put on coats, and long pants and let the house, walking down the street. DAMN it was windy yesterday morning! We get down there around 11ish, and were well underwhelmed. I’ll grant that this was the second weekend (monthly) and so maybe everyone is getting into the groove still, maybe the spring harvests haven’t come in yet, etc, but wow, was it sorta bunk.

I’m holding out hope that as the spring and summer progress there’s a better showing. it’s only a few blocks so we’ll be checking it out each time if we’re in town.

Oh and next time it’s open, is June 14th so make sure to drop by, and see if there’s anything you can’t live without.

    Did you go for the "furnishings, primitives, retro collectibles" and so on, or did you go for the farmer’s market? I’m asking because I’m curious about the quality of their farmer’s market. Boulder is a long way to go for a good quality outdoor market.

    Sorry to hear it’s lame (at this point). The ‘eclectic garden accessories’ caught my eye.

    T: check out http://www.denverfarmersmarket.com/ and you might be able to another market closer to home.

    @tbradley,

    We mainly went just to see what it was. This time out, no famers market to speak of beyond home made salsa, and jamaican spiced somethings. Hoping for more though, my wife does like the fresh fruits and veggies.

    Hey, I just noticed they activated the most popular and most commented options just north of the topmost post.
