Grand Lake Farmers' Market

Saturdays, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
800-897-3276
Grand Lake Farmers' Market
Equal parts fresh-produce hub, outdoor food court, and neighborhood block party, the Grand Lake Farmers’ Market (Grand Ave. and Lake Park Ave.) really does have something for everyone: live music for the head-bobbing set, a bouncy house for the kids, and high-quality people-watching for the rest of us. Mostly, though, the market functions as one helluva one-stop shop, whether you’re putting together a romantic picnic or picking up groceries for the week. Depending on the season, highlights might include Flavor Queen pluots from Kashiwase Farms, colorful heirloom tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms, a small wheel of aged triple-cream cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, and whatever happens to be on special at the Prather Ranch butcher stand. While you’re at it, grab a falafel salad from the LIBA Falafel food truck and some pork knuckles from Roli Roti. Just like that, Saturday’s lunch is served. free
