South Wedge Farmer's Market is a small weekly summer/fall farmers market in the South Wedge. They embrace the grow local, eat local doctrine in sustainability, sourcing vendors and foods only from within 100 miles. Many vendors also sell organic produce, meats, wine and foods. It has space for just over two dozen vendors. EBT welcome.

The South Wedge Farmers' Market was founded by Chris and Vicki Hartman. After a lengthy campaign, it finally kicked off when Boulder Coffee Co. owner Lyjha Wilton won a zoning variance to pave the yard behind the Boulder flagship location at 100 Alexander Street. The market was held here until 2015, when it moved to its current location.

The market is now run by the South Wedge Planning Committee with manager Sue Gardner Smith.

It's not the kind of place that you could buy all your produce at unless you have a pretty hefty budget. But please don't let that deter you from going; it's certainly worth going to and picking up an item or two just to hang out. —DaveMilitello
