Today I visited the Boulder Farmers Market and the only thing that was disappointing was that I didn’t have a bigger bag and a cart with wheels. It was, in my friends words, “better than Whole foods” and that is saying a lot.

Natural Honey

If the bee disappeared from the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.
–Albert Einstein
There were so many yummy vegetables. From beans to cinnamon rolls they had everything… All fresh, all organic and all good.

We met a young woman selling infused honey to help with nervous system issues and other ailments. They had their own bee farm, Highland Honey Bees. Their honey is as close to raw as you can get. They do not heat the honey, instead it is creamed so that it will never crystalize.

Honey, like wine, coffee, chocolate, and cheese, is part of America’s epicurean food awakening. Once you have eaten an exquisite honey, you will always know the difference between a generic honey and that of a raw product with unique local tastes and floral aromas.HighlandBees.com

 

This video features Tim Brod, owner of Boulder-based Highland Honey Bees. He discusses the effect pesticides have on bees and why it is so important to work toward a pesticide free world.

One of the best things you can do to support bees today is to plant high nectar producing plants.Tom Brod

The Market

The Market spanned an entire block in Downtown Boulder with a food section with a band playing and nice places to sit and listen or watch. There were wines, vegetables, plants & bakery items. I wanted to try everything.

If you’re ever in Boulder you need to visit the Farmers Market. And if you’re not in Boulder you should look up a Farmers Market in your area. What better way to get your food than fresh and local?
