Boulder: Great markets

Boulder Farmers’ Market (pictured) is so good that Denver chefs shop it. Every seller is a bona fide farmer or producer, including Boulder’s Black Cat chef and organic farmer, Eric Skokan, who mans his own stand and offers cooking tips. After losing our only cheese shop a few years back, we’re excited about recently opened Cured, on Pearl Street’s eastern end, for cheese, charcuterie, and wine—all obsessively sourced.

Score: 7
