Colorado Markets to Visit
Nothing is better on a lazy weekend morning than to take a leisurely stroll through a market, checking out all the goods other people are selling. Over the last few years, markets have been popping up all over the place selling everything from artisan cheeses to more common place items such as second hand or refurbished items. The following are some of my favorite markets to check out throughout Colorado.
THE DENVER FLEA MARKET
Arguably one of the bigger markets in Colorado Denver Flea market is a great place to eat drink and sift through some of the most unique flea market finds around. This event happens four times a year, Christmas, spring, summer and fall, in a different location for each. Check out their website for news on upcoming Fleas, from holiday parties and vendor announcements to craft beer tastings and giveaways.
MILE HIGH FLEA MARKET
This is one of the few year-round markets around and also one of the biggest. Open weekends in Henderson at I-76 & 88th Avenue, the Mile High Flea Market boasts over 3,000 vendors. They sell new and used items as well as food and drink. There is also an attached farmers market and live music almost every weekend!
BOULDER FARMERS MARKET
Every Saturday from April through November, take a walk though stands packed with locally grown fruit and vegetables at the Boulder Farmers Market. This is a nonprofit organization and has some of the best locally grown crops around. You can also find handmade crafts, artisan cheeses and fine wines for all of your tasting delights.
THE BIG WONDERFUL
The Big Wonderful is definitely something you don’t want to miss in Denver, but it is only on select weekends. Check out their website before heading out on this particular venture. This is more of a combination of bazaar, beer fest and music fest than your typical flea market. Live music is scheduled throughout the entire weekend, giving a captivating ambiance to seek out your high fashion needs as well as see new work by your favorite local artists.
No matter what market you end up in you are sure to find a few amazing items and even taste a new craft beer or two. Colorado locals love their markets and tend to be very passionate about them making visiting one a definite stop on your trip to Colorado.
