Boulder County Farmers Markets: At the Market: Try New Cuisine
Boulder County Farmers Markets
We get it – we all have our favorite habits and routines. And that can be especially true at the farmer’s market.
Maybe you arrive at 8am sharp every Saturday, line up at Morton’s Organic Orchards for your fruit, visit Aspen Moon Farm for your greens, grab some eggs from Wisdom Poultry, and end the morning with a pupusa with a fried egg for breakfast.
Or maybe you’re more of an afternoon shopper. You start by refueling with a cold brew from Silver Canyon Coffee and a bowl of noodles from Savory Saigon, grab your bread for the week from Breadworks, and fill your reusable mesh produce bag with treats from Monroe Organic Farm.
To be honest, these routines sound amazing, and we won’t ask you to change any of your market staples. But we encourage you to add new stops to your routine. And as for the food court, there are so many delicious and varied dishes prepared by amazing chefs.
Read on to find out what delicious breakfast or lunch awaits you at the market. If you never try, you’ll never know!
Savor the South Sudanese flavor
Susan Loriho is our new market vendor, starting last week at the Boulder Wednesday Market. Her company, aptly named Susan’s Samosas, brings South Sudanese pastries to our market. These samosas are filled with organic vegetables, different locally raised meats, and even fruit and chocolate for a dessert option.
Loriho uses her business as a way to give back. Growing up in an orphanage, she uses a percentage of profits to help orphans and foster children receive an education. When it comes to her own son, Loriho says her samosas are the best way to get him to eat his vegetables! Visit Susan’s Samosas in Boulder on Wednesday and try these wonderful triangular pastry pouches.
Our weekly pizza night
Lenin Ramirez has been a pizza maker for 10 years. And when you bite into a slice of his wood-fired, thin-crust pizza, you can tell. Ramirez started his own business in 2020 when he converted a disabled bus into a mobile wood-fired pizza oven. Now he also has a trailer with a pizza oven so he can be in two places at once, and you can have gourmet pizzas in Boulder and Longmont.
Try pizzas with red sauce, pesto or white sauce bases and creative combinations of local meats and vegetables. With a new breakfast pizza on his menu, Ramirez has given us all the excuses we need to have pizza for every meal.
In 2019, Laruen Tregoning started following a plant-based diet. The meals she started to prepare brought her energy, joy and new creativity and passion in the kitchen. However, even in Boulder, Tregoning found a lack of available vegan options that were delicious, convenient and healthy, so she set out to fill that gap.
This market season, Tregoning started at the Longmont Saturday Market. She cooks up plant-based delights, including zucchini punnets filled with quinoa or chickpea salad, peanut butter power bites and crisps with vegan queso dip. Vegan or not, we’re sure you can get behind some fries and a dip.
A taste of Texas
Born in Dallas and now residing in Boulder, JB Hall Sr is the “Rev” behind Rev’s Ribs. Hall learned the art of barbecue at a young age from his uncle Cornelius Davis.
Now Hall has been barbecuing for over 20 years and continues his family tradition of infusing love into every plate. Over the years, Hall has perfected their dry sauce, barbecue sauce, and cooking process that uses real wood smoke. Visit Rev’s Ribs at our Longmont Saturday Market for a hearty helping of Southern hospitality and a plate of the tastiest barbecue outside of Texas.
They say life begins at the end of your comfort zone. When stepping out of your comfort zone tastes so good, there’s nothing to worry about. Visit our markets in Boulder and Longmont to try dishes from other regions, plant-based options and new twists on old classics.
