It's been a whopping 15 years since the first vendors at the Vail Farmer's Market and Art Show set up the first booths filled with organic peaches, veggies and other tasty treats. In that time the market has grown from what were admittedly humble beginnings to 16 fun filled Sundays with more than 135 vendors. Sure, you'll still find those luscious peaches, but there's a lot more, including art, food tents with every flavor, live music and great people watching. The offerings range from classic Vail restaurants like the Alpenrose to produce from the western slope breadbaskets of Palisade and Paonia.
In other words, there's something for everyone, and even if you show up planning not to purchase anything, you'll most likely find yourself walking home with a shopping bag over your shoulder laden with - at the very least - some of those amazing organic peaches.
