For almost 30 years, the Greeley Farmers' Market serves as an all-year-round, authentic, farm-to-table experience for Greeley residents. Visitors have the opportunity to support local farmers, ranchers, and artisans. Here, residents can find plenty of meat, fresh produce, fresh baked goods, and much more. "We're excited to have more vendors than we had in previous years," said Andrea Haring, special events coordinator for the city. "In our peak in mid-July, we are on track to have about 50 vendors at the market, which is double of what we had last year." Every weekend, local artisans and crafters also offer great gifts and other sundries.
The live entertainment provided by local musicians each week helps uphold the mission of the market: "Real Food. Real Farmers. Real Fun!" Along with finding fresh, locally-sourced food, enjoying live music, supporting local artists, Greeley residents also have the opportunity to learn about yard maintenance and landscaping tips from the Weld County Master Gardeners. The Farmers' Market summer season runs from mid-May through October and is open 8 a.m.-noon on Saturdays.
