Visiting families of students frequent Boulder's two outdoor walking malls which boast all the typical chains as well as some unique local businesses. Academics browse the shelves of a few independent bookstores, some of which have roots in America's beat movement of the 1950's. Yuppies fund boutique clothing and jewelry stores along with workshops producing designer home goods and fashion from recycled materials. Hippies and health freaks worship the biweekly seasonal farmer's market, while epicureans enjoy well-stocked liquor stores, an exceptional European style cheese, bread, wine, beer, meat shop and a super-sized Whole Foods grocery. Outdoor enthusiasts are equally well served by one of the nation's highest grossing REI's and plenty of smaller suppliers of bicycle, rock climbing, mountaineering, running and angling accoutrements. If none of these suit your needs, try McGuckin Hardware, perhaps the single most diverse store on the planet.
