The relaxing Wednesday evening Boulder Farmers Market opens for the season May 1 on 13th Street between Canyon and Arapahoe with fresh produce, live music, food carts and adult beverages. 

The team behind Gemini restaurant has opened High Country next door at 1117 Pearl St., longtime home of Hapa Sushi before it moved to 1048 Pearl Street. Executive Chef Brian Pierce’s lunch and dinner menu features burgers, salads and super-crispy hand-cut fries. 

Whistling Boar, Longmont’s farm-to-table caterer, has opened Whistling Boar Provisions at 6315 Lookout Road in Gunbarrel. The restaurant and even space with a huge rooftop patio is serving dinner and will offer a Mother’s Day brunch buffet. 

We lift a well-earned toast to the late Linda White. She and her husband, Lymon White, launched Boulder County’s first cheese importing company, Willow River, in 1976. The family continues the fromage tradition at Longmont’s Cheese Importers Warehouse

Somehow, we’re not that surprised to find that home customers of Longmont’s Royal Crest Dairy can now have Teahouse Chai delivered along with fresh local milk in glass bottles. That’s the same spiced chai brewed and served at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse

Coming soon: Cafe Fritz, 7502 Hygiene Road, Hygiene 

Words to Chew On: R U a Foodie? 

“Whenever I was called a ‘gourmet,’ I suspected I was being accused of something at least slightly unpleasant. But that was before I heard the term ‘foodie.’ I am still not sure that a ‘gourmet’ is a good thing to be, but it must be better than a ‘foodie.’” – Food writer Mark Kurlansky
