Denver/Boulder Couriers to Provide Bike Delivery Service to Boulder Farmer's Market

From the Daily Camera

You're riding your bike through Central Park and decide to stop at the Boulder Farmers' Market to buy some fresh veggies. While there, you decide you'd also like a box of peaches and some bread.

Before you know it, you have bags of food and no convenient way to get it home.

It's with this kind of situation in mind that the Boulder Farmers' Market this year has partnered with Denver/Boulder Couriers to provide a bike delivery service for customers, market manager Jenn Ross said.

"This is a service so people can complete their shopping in one stop," Ross said while making her rounds at the market Wednesday. "You don't have to take a car down here. You can buy three cases of peaches and have them delivered to your house. It's cheap, it's efficient and it's pollution-free."

Using a 5-foot-long by 2.5-foot-wide aluminum trailer, a pair of coolers and a gently used 18-speed bike, DBC offers $6 deliveries to locations north to Iris Avenue, south to Table Mesa Drive and east to Foothills Parkway. A delivery to areas outside that perimeter but still in the city of Boulder is $9. He offers the service from 5 p.m. until the market closes on Wednesdays, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
