Congratulations, Denver! We’ve officially made it to farmers’ market season, so get ready to fill up on fresh fruits and vegetables and Colorado-made specialty items.
Denver’s robust farmers markets are so popular that there’s one in nearly every neighborhood and suburb. And if you’re heading out to explore outside the city this weekend, not to worry—there’s an app for that! Colorado Farm Fresh is a free app from the Colorado Department of Agriculture, available for both Apple and Android, and it’ll point you to every farmers’ market, roadside stand, and corn maze in the state.
Whether you’re heading just around the corner or making a day of exploring what the city—or state—has to offer, it’s guaranteed to be worth the trip.
