The Ultimate Guide to Northern Colorado Farmers Markets [Updated 2018]

This post was updated April 11, 2018 to include current information and recommendations.

The Northern Colorado region hosts two extremes; on one side we have towering mountains and on the other, we have flat farmland which provides a unique combination of rocky areas to explore and fertile land to grow. This means we get to peruse plenty of farms and markets after long days of recreation. And what better way to appreciate the fruits (and vegetables!) of your local farmers’ labor? 

Use our interactive map to find the market nearest you and check out the descriptions below to explore markets in your town and find out when you can stop by.

Whatever you do, make it a point to shop local this summer. Whether you’ve lived in Northern Colorado your whole life or just moved to the area, the local farmers’ market is the best place to get in tune with the heartbeat of our community.
