There are Farmer's Markets spread throughout The Mile High City all Summer long!

And they aren't just about locally grown, farm-fresh produce, delicious baked goods and good-to-the-last bite prepared foods — though you'll find more than enough of those things. 

Each Denver farmers' market is a festive street fair, with live entertainment, family-friendly activities and a vibrant crowd of locals. Take some time this Summer to enjoy these great Denver farmers' markets:

We can't believe it's already Memorial Day weekend!

With the crazy Spring housing market keeping us busy, we haven't even had a chance to think about how we are going to celebrate Memorial Day...until now! We asked Live Urban agents for their go-to picnic, potluck, and BBQ recipes (or Denver area restaurants to pickup the best takeout) to share with you.

So, take a minute or two to think about those who have served and sacrificed to make our freedom possible, and celebrate the long weekend with some of these yummy ideas!

We are really feeling the housing crunch as the Spring market heats up!

Even with new inventory hitting the market every day, homes that are priced right and show well continue to sell very quickly. We are seeing a lot of buyers resort to buying new construction, and waiting for homes to be built, in order to be able to own a home anywhere in the Denver metro area, including the suburbs.

There are articles all over the media about how hot Denver's market is, too.

From the Denver Post:

Colorado’s population rose by almost 102,000 people last year, but the state added only 25,143 new homes, condos and apartments to accommodate those newcomers, according to updated estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The division of those two

It's FINALLY that time of year - and the first non-stormy weekend that we've had here in the Denver Metro area for as long as we can remember! Your green thumb is probably itching to plant your garden, fill in your flower beds, accessorize your yards and hang some overflowing flower baskets from your balcony or front porch.

There are a lot of fabulous garden centers in the Denver area...we asked Live Urban agents to spill their favorite spots so that you can get out there and start planting!

Mark said: We can't get enough greenbucks at Echter's. Really helpful plant Docs, and a great selection of Colorado water smart plants.  Don't go unless you're got a truck big enough to haul it all home...your eyes will always be bigger than your trunk.
