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.”

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!”

Paul Kacsmar: Longmont Market Coordinator, 720.840.0533

Market favorites: “multi-colored carrots, peaches and obviously chips and salsa!”

I love the farmers market because…”it brings amazing people together who all want to know where their food comes from.”

Outside of the market, you will find me… “running and hiking through the mountains, drinking beer and cooking!”

Elyse Wood: Denver Market Coordinator & Community Outreach, 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.”

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.”
