Brian Coppom: Executive Director, 303.910.2236

Market favorites: “over-wintered carrots and spinach—it’s vegetable candy!”

I love the farmers market because… “I feel connected and happy when I’m at the market—chatting with the farmers, buying the best produce available, and saying hello to my neighbors and friends.”

Outside of the market, you will find me… “Outside of the markets? I’m not sure I understand the question.”

Erika Moats: Finance Manager, 303.910.2236

Market favorites: “everything! But if I have to decide it would be between snap peas and spare ribs!”

I love the farmers market because… “I love fresh local foods. I’ve been shopping at farmers markets for many years and love how you can really see difference in quality and freshness of BCFM produce versus the grocery store. Also, trying new items and getting cooking tips from the farmers has really helped expand my cooking horizon!”

Outside of the market, you will find me… “hiking around Colorado, cooking, camping, live music from Red Rocks to local Bluegrass, and wearing Tutu skirts in the rain.”

Elyse Wood: Operations & Community Manager, 720.507.3663

Market favorites: “I can never get enough of juice-dribbling peaches!”

I love the farmers market because… “I can connect with my farmers. Not only do they grow the food that nourishes my body but they are amazing people with so much else they’re involved in. I’m always in awe to find out how much they impact our community with activities outside farming.”

Outside the market, you will find me…”live music, hikes and all around adventuring.”

Elizabeth Woessner: Director of Marketing & Communication, 303.927.8186

Market favorites: “Tomatoes. Beautiful juicy tomatoes, ripened by the sun, that are so delicious they need nothing but a little salt and maybe some olive oil to create my perfect summer plate.”

I love farmers markets because… “There is a beautiful sense of community. The market brings together farmers and the people who love fresh ingredients. They mix and mingle, share tips, and recipes, and connect with each other in a meaningful way. Oh, and the market smells so good!”

Outside the market, you will find me… drinking wine, eating cheese, skiing, hiking, and taking in all the wonders of Colorado”

Maya Yakobi: Boulder Market Coordinator, 720.840.0529

Market favorites: “The taste of the first peach of the season! And flowers; they bring the market to life!”

I love farmers markets because… “it’s a combination of sensory bliss and the intellect and intelligence that goes into creating a more sustainable food system!”

Outside the market, you will find me…”Exploring Colorado; its’ breweries, farms, prairies and mountains!”

Genevieve Gross: Longmont Market Coordinator, 720.840.0533

Market favorites: “Cheese. I just love cheese.”

I love the farmers market because…”of the community and the constant learning.”

Outside of the market, you will find me… “hanging out with my cats – Cricket and Muffin.”

Hannah Keitel: Denver Market Coordinator, 720.837.1361

Market favorites: The first plums of the season! Their tart peel and sweet,  juicy fruit are the perfect combination. And carrots – I can never get enough carrots.

I love farmers markets because… “I can connect with food producers and the community working to create a more sustainable and just food system.”

Outside of the market, you will find me… “practicing and teaching yoga, hiking, reading and exploring CO outdoors”

Carly Collier: Finance & Office Assistant, 303-910-2236

Market favorites: “Arugula & mixed lettuces & more arugula!  The Arugula that the farms bring are tasty, and have a peppery bite that you just can’t find in the grocery store. The lettuces are so vibrant with life that it’s the base of all my meals through out the week until the next farmers market.”

I love the farmers market because…”it’s not just the place where I take my family to get our nutritious vegetables and meats for the week but it has become a place where I find my sense of community and also where i see nothing but friendly faces as many of the farmers and staff have become near and dear to me and my family.”

Outside of the market, you will find me… “hiking or riding bikes with my kids, chilling at Seeds Library Cafe and the wonderful Boulder Public Library, going to harvesting days at a local farm, trying to gain experience at building my green thumb or just enjoying the beauty that Boulder offers.”
