I love spring in Colorado — especially trips to the farmers market! The kids and I wander through, checking out produce from local farmers, crafts from local vendors, and some pretty tasty food made right there in front of us. One of my favorite things is discovering fruits and veggies we’ve never tried before — yellow watermelon, purple potatoes, heirloom tomatoes — we’ve done a lot of experimenting at our local farmers markets. Here’s a list of farmer’s markets in the Denver metro area you and your family can check out this season!
