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.
