Farmer's Markets are a big thing in Colorado that have a lot of great benefits for local communities. Farmer's markets help maintain important social ties and create unique bonds between rural and urban areas. They also reduce the amount of transport, storage, and refrigeration that comes with moving fresh produce from the fields into cities. Here are some of the most popular farmer's markets in Colorado that will be operating in your area before you know it.
