The Highlands Ranch Farmers Market has been part of the Douglas County community for over 14 years. Located in the square of Highlands Ranch Town Center, the market brings more than 40 vendors to our area every Sunday.
Under the white vendor awnings of the market, you’ll find everything from fresh local produce to oreo churros made while you wait and handed to you warm from the fryer carefully wrapped in a paper bag.
Rich Freeman is the Manager for Denver Farmers’ Market, which operates four markets, including Highlands Ranch. He says, “The reason why farmers' markets are so popular is simple. People like to know where their food comes from, and they love the personal interaction with our farmers and family-owned businesses - like Styria Bakery. Colorado proud.”
Styria Bakery is a farmers’ market that regularly provide gourmet breads and pretzels. Their handmade gourmet breads use a natural starter, reducing the need for commercial yeast and any number of preservatives added by other bakeries.
Styria Bakery owner Shannon Campbell also mentions how important the personal interaction with customers is to her.
“All three of our children’s first summer job was working at a farmers’ market and our customers have watched them grow up. From our family to yours, thank you for continuing to support our business,” she says.
And from Mazotti Farms, one of the Denver Farmers’ Market’s original vendors: "Farmers' Markets are a wonderful opportunity to meet the people who produce the foods you eat. At the market children learn about the local sources of vegetables and meats, much of it grown organically. Many markets feature arts and crafts by local people, and many times there are fresh breads and other unique prepared foods.
Make a date with the whole family, get out to meet your neighbors at your local farmers' market. We will see you there!”
