We're ready, are you? Market season 2018 is almost here!

Even if it was a relatively mild Colorado winter the (official) start of spring today means only one thing to us: Market Season is almost here. We made some changes for 2018 that we are really excited about!

First, let's talk about the classics. We are excited to be returning in 2018 to the first market we attended as a full-time member, the Larimer County Farmer's Market. This producers-only market features a variety of great vendors and a rich tradition in Fort Collins.  The market starts on May 19th and runs on Saturday mornings from 8-12.

The Estes Valley Farmer's Market is a local favorite centered in beautiful downtown Estes Park. We will once again be returning to Bond Park for the 2018 season on Thursdays from 8-1 starting June 7th. Adding local flavors and vendors to the beautiful scenery makes this a wonderful destination market. 

Vail, Colorado is a beautiful place and while most of the attention is on the winter skiing, the real beauty also shines in the summer! The Vail Farmer's Market and Art Show features amazing produce, great ready to eat food, handcrafted art and an array of prepared foods.  Centered in downtown Vail Village it features more than 100 vendors Sundays from 10-3:30 starting Father's Day. We are ready to join Vail for our fourth season.

Mainstreet Steamboat produces the Steamboat Farmer's Market on Saturday's from 9-2 next to the Yampa River on the edge of downtown. Featuring both artisans and food producers, we are excited to be in our third year with the Steamboat market.They pair the market with a variety of events including the Mustang Roundup, Baloon Festival, and the Chili Cookoff1

The team at William's Family markets welcomed us as a full-time vendor in 2017 at the Parker Farmer's Market. They are perennially named the Best of Denver farmer's market and features several different farms, coffee, jams, perogies and more! The opening market is Mother's Day and it runs from 8-1 through October. 

We are excited to be joining the Boulder County Farmer's Market family this season as a guest vendor. The Boulder County Farmer's market is a producer-only market that focuses on encouraging the development of local foods while providing a fun atmosphere in their markets. They feature five markets: Boulder Saturday, Boulder Wednesday, Lafayette Thursday, Union Station Saturday and Longmont Saturday. We are looking forward to being at the Longmont Farmer's market at the Boulder County Fairgrounds from 8-1 for six weeks starting April 7th.  We will also be doing a six-week stint at the Lafayette Thursday market starting June 7th.

We hope to have news about a couple of additional markets, we will make announcements here and on our social media channels.
