After the tour, join chefs Alex and Steven, along with Good Food 100 Restaurants (TM) co-founder Sara Brito, for coffee, pastries and conversation about their thoughts on topics like seasonality, root to leaf cooking, sourcing transparency and the importance of supporting our farmers.
The Denver Union Station Farmers Market is operated by Boulder County Farmers Markets, the brainchild of a group of local farmers who came together with their vision of a local market in the mid-1980s. What started as a few tables of produce loaded off the backs of pickup trucks has evolved into robust destination markets in Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Denver and Seeds Cafe in the Boulder Public Library. The handful of inspired farmers has expanded to include more than 150 local vendors, hosting the longest market season in the State of Colorado.
Good Food 100 Restaurants(TM) is an annual list and economic report published by the Good Food Media Network 501(c)(3) nonprofit, designed to educate eaters and celebrate restaurants and chefs for being transparent with their purchasing practices. The Good Food 100 Restaurants spotlights restaurants that are helping to build a better food system by using their purchasing power to support local, state, regional and national farmers, ranchers, fisherman and purveyors.
