The Aspen Saturday Market offers a feast for your eyes and treats for your sweet tooth. In a town where tourism thrives, the market has become a popular venue for the community to enjoy a homestyle brunch with a little hometown dish on the side. Regardless of the direction you’re facing, the market tantalizes your senses with cheerful colors and delicious aromas from mounds of freshly-baked pastries and bread; baskets of green beans and yellow squash; boxes of ripe peaches; and above, a cerulean sky to launch expressions of gratitude.

Originating from a single root system, aspens grow in colonies that can survive for thousands of years at high elevations.1 Sun-loving aspens flourish by sending out new stems as far as 100’ from the parent tree, and this unique root structure also makes them resistant to fire damage. 2 Because it's soft, but quite strong, aspen wood is used to make excelsior, paper, and matches.
Best-Dressed Farmers' Market...
The Aspen Saturday Market has branched out to include a variety of goods from farmers and artisans living in nearby towns. Glamorous jewelry, distinctive clothing brands, and fine artwork add a sophisticated flair to the market. While strolling through the most scenic market in Colorado, you can find ingredients to stock your pantry, or a designer dress to rock your closet.

Standing beneath a golden canopy of aspen trees is an enchanting experience. A childhood memory of reaching into a bag of Brach’s butterscotch candy intersects with the thrill of seeing Maroon Bells as an adult for a moment of pure contentment.

aspen leaves to ring in the new season.
