Farmers' markets in Colorado are a wonderful asset to both local communities and the overall state economy. They provide a platform for small farmers and artisans to sell their fresh, organic produce and handmade goods directly to consumers, fostering a sense of community and supporting local agriculture. Shoppers at these markets can enjoy a diverse array of seasonal fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and baked goods, often grown and produced with sustainable practices. Beyond the high-quality food, these markets also offer a vibrant social atmosphere where people can connect, enjoy live music, and learn about where their food comes from. By shopping at farmers' markets, Colorado residents contribute to the local economy, reduce their carbon footprint, and promote healthier eating habits.

Colorado Farmers Markets

June is the time of the year that Colorado sees a lot of farmers markets, like the Boulder County Farmers market. Since 1987, the Boulder County Farmers Market has been a cornerstone of the community, offering fresh, local food. Originally described on its website as "a few tables of produce loaded off the backs of pickup trucks," this nonprofit has grown significantly, now hosting multiple markets with over 150 vendors. Among these vendors are newcomers like Grama Grass & Livestock, Rising Tiger, and Colorado Farmhouse Cheese Company. With market dates extending from April to November, it proudly boasts the longest market season in the state. Another popular place for farmers markets in Colorado is the Metro Denver farmers market.

Over four decades ago, the Metro Denver Farmers' Market started in downtown Denver, initially hosted only on Saturdays in an Auraria campus parking lot. Our mission is simple: to provide you with the freshest, locally sourced produce available. All our locations are proudly part of the SNAP Program and accept EBT cards for payment. In Littleton, local suppliers offer a bounty of fresh peaches, plums, apricots, and cherries during the mid-season. Additionally, you'll discover a wide array of offerings, from fresh produce and baked goods to honey, spirits, sausage, handmade pierogi, salsa, cheese curds, popcorn, and much more!
