Our third farmers market in three days was in the Highland area of Denver, Colorado. It is a neighborhood farmers market featuring farm goods, prepared foods and crafts. Our nephew, Matthew Erley, lives in the Highland neighborhood and was anxious to show us their market.
After our two week void of farmers markets we are making up for lost markets. Longmont Farmers Market is our second farmers market in three days. Since we are staying at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont and that is where the farmers market is, it was an easy and pleasant walk to the market on Saturday morning.
The Boulder Farmers Market is a community gathering place offering not only fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy and other items yet also offering prepared foods and a grassy lawn to enjoy those foods while visiting. There was even a Balloon Man forming balloons into various objects for the children to wear and enjoy. After two weeks of no farmers market we were in Farmer Market Heaven!

The July 2nd Red Stick Farmers Market began this morning with the National Anthem played by a single trumpeter, John Gray. He began at one end of the market and walked slowly playing the National Anthem to the other end of the market. Everyone was in awe!

Having to go to Zachary, LA on Saturday, the first thing we did was look for a Farmers Market in the area. Sure enough, Zachary has a Farmers Market downtown from 8-Noon on Saturdays. The market is two years old and recently moved downtown near City Hall.
The Saturday morning Crescent City Farmers Market in New Orleans was bursting with activity as well as color. The flowers and vegetables would fill an artist palate with a rainbow of colors. We always try to walk a market to see the offerings and then decide what to purchase.
