As Denver and Front Range farmer’s markets open this weekend or soon after, Streetsblog Denver Twitter followers shared the bike setups they use to get to markets and back, even with a week’s worth fresh veggies in tow. And several readers added that it’s not all about the gear: A backpack or shoulder bag will do.

Below are photos from our readers with lists of area farmer’s markets and their opening dates.
