A Sense of Place

After returning home from a trip out West, I thought I would share some images of the Longmont Farmer's Market, in Boulder County, Colorado. I do believe there is no better way to experience the true substance of a place than by walking through it's local markets. Among my purchases: locally roasted coffee and handmade ravioli, filled with local "haystack mountain" chevre. Indescribably flavorful.
Grass fed chicken and beef, squashes and fruits, bread, cheese, the most beautiful broccoli you've ever seen, honey, handmade tamales, live music, brick oven pizza, and yes, even organic donuts, fried to order.
A delight for the senses!

  1. I'd recognize Styria's loaves anywhere. My husband and I run the Crested Butte Farmers Market, and they sell up here too. We don't have haystack cheese, but we do have wonderful artisan-style goat cheese.
