You wake up, it’s Saturday, and you’re in Aspen. The air is clean and fresh…every flower seems brighter than the next…vivid colors, bright blue sky…you can’t help but feel amazing. So what do the locals do on Saturday morning? They hit the farmers market.
I know this isn’t a typical “boutique,” but it does involve shopping and this is a MUST do when you are here for the weekend. Local farmers from neighboring towns set up shop with produce offerings that are almost too beautiful to eat. Everything is Colorado made, grown and/or produced from as far as Grand Junction. In addition, there are art dealers, jewelry designers, the goat cheese booth (yes it’s amazing!), local wineries, and last but not least, the flowers – if I lived here, I would buy flowers from this lady every weekend.
Head over to East Hopkins between Hunter and Galena on any Saturday from 8am to 3pm between June and October. Within minutes, you will feel right at home and forget you are just visiting.
