Exciting news! It really is - whether you're just visiting or you're a habitual organic produce junkie, Aspen's Saturday Farmer's Market is a weekly highlight in the area.
The market grows bigger and more versatile every year, with live music, Colorado-made crafts, wines and beauty products, as well as clothes, jewelry, hats, goat cheese, Kettle Corn...you name it, and Colorado's vendors will bring it to the Market.
It's that time of year again and the weather is rejoicing...culinary coups, libations extraordinaire and a host of parties throughout Aspen to celebrate FOOD and WINE Magazine's 30th Annual Food and Wine Classic in Aspen.
From cooking demonstrations to scotch tastings to galleries, restaurants and plein air parties, downtown Aspen comes alive - and revels - throughout the weekend.
