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!
