The advent of farmers’ markets is a true indicator that spring has arrived. And this year, it has additional meaning as a sign that Denver’s economy is starting to open up as we slowly get back to "normal" following the pandemic.

Our farmers’ markets allow us to get outside, peruse locally grown vegetables and herbs, and purchase artisan goods made right here in the Centennial State.

What better way to celebrate spring than visiting a local farmers’ market? This is a great time to support Colorado’s small business owners and give back to our communities. Most of the markets will be selling fresh produce, hand-made goods, unique Colorado gifts and gourmet foods. Check each of the websites for more details.

This Saturday at Southwest Plaza, you’ll be able to peruse handcrafted goods and a variety of specialty food items. From honey to bread, salsa to kombucha, you’ll love the array of products, most of which are Colorado based.

Get rid of the COVID-19 doldrums by supporting the local economy. It will boost your spirits and help small businesses throughout the Denver metro area. Check out the current list of markets which is sure to increase as we approach summer.
