Pearl Street Farmers’ Market

As the first coolness of autumn was setting in, we (along with everyone else in Denver) headed out to one of our favorite spots – the Pearl Street Farmers’ Market. Especially during peak growing season, the Pearl Street Farmers’ Market is one of the biggest, and the best, farmers’ markets in Denver.

So let us show you around. Starting with the inviting buildings and shops that surround the market.

Grab your biggest bag and head in for a treasure hunt.

Fuel up at our favorite little coffee shop, Stella’s Coffee Haus. On market days, the line will be well out the door, but the seasonal lattes are creative and you’ll need the burst of energy to take in all the different tents of goodies.

Take a couple minutes out front strategizing your approach. Then head out to stock your fridge and fill your pantry. There’s no shortage of seasonal favorites.

In Colorado that means peaches and cherries for your fruit drawer.

Zucchini and yellow squash for your veggie drawer.

You can’t leave without a few colorful, sun-kissed tomatoes. Wouldn’t these just be the best inside an artisanal grilled cheese sandwich? Perhaps one made with this amazing looking freshly baked bread?

Once you’ve picked up all the fixings for dinner, you’ll need something to drink. Take your choice between wine, spirits, or sparkling water. CBD infused, of course. (This is Denver, after all, where we take far too much pride in infusing things with CBD!)

Final step, a topper for your table.

After all, no market day is complete without a bushel of beautiful and fragrant seasonal flowers!

Supporting your local growers is the best way to get the freshest and most nutritious foods that are grown closest to where you live. And wandering the stalls is a blooming good way to spend a day!

  2. Those peaches look so tasty, I want to go buy some right this minute. Will have to go shopping this week though, and I know they will not be anywhere as tasty as those ones are.

    1. They’re never as good at the store as they are straight from the farms! We cheated today and just picked up a couple from the store…and the ones from the market were definitely better!

  8. On the one hand I can see the draw of a Boulder Farmers’ Market. On the other hand, does Denver not have several of its own? I know the two cities aren’t that far apart, but I’m a little surprised people want to make the trip.

    1. There are multiple farmers’ markets in Denver, which is where this one is. It’s the Pearl Street near Wash Park. Sorry for any confusion! Different Pearl Street!

  9. Aww … this was my old neighborhood!!! We just moved to Golden about a year ago. This makes me miss Platt Park so much … but I do love it over here too. We should meet up for a beer sometime in Platt Park 🙂

    1. Those are two amazing locations!! You have good taste! Platt Park is definitely our happy place. So many great restaurants! And now we are craving Sushi Den!

      1. Thanks … yeah we really like both locations. After 15 years in Platt Park we were ready to get over to the west side. We love the proximity to the trails over here but do miss our Sushi Den, Ototo, Platt Park Brewing, etc. though. Have you tried Chook? I do like that as well. So much to do over there 🙂

      2. We haven’t tried it yet. We were very attached to The Village Cork, and it’s been a little sad seeing something else in its spot!

      3. I know what you mean about being attached. Village Cork was one of my first dates with my husband. When you’re ready to move on … LOL … Chook is a good replacement at least. 🙂
