See you in 2015 !
Thanks to all the farmers and customers who have made this a great year ! Even with the cold spring and the early mini-frost in September, we had a nice growing season.
Lots of fall fruits and vegetables will be available for several weeks at other markets. Please continue to support locally grown produce and foods !
Fort Collins Winter Farmers' Market is open this Saturday, February 28.
FOR NEW AND RETURNING VENDORS: Please read the rules for 2015 ( above and to the left ). Note that Larimer County sales tax rates have increased .05 for non-grocery items.
If you have leftover $ 5.00 tokens, they can be used at Pasta Pazza stand at the Winter Farmers' Markets in the Opera Galleria.
Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman

Hours and Location for 2015
In Larimer County there are now at least five separate Farmers' Markets. The Colorado Agricultural Marketing Cooperative offers markets in Fort Collins and Loveland to local growers and consumers. (Emphasis on local here, as produce is restricted to Larimer, Morgan, Boulder or Weld Counties, with the exception of Western Slope fruit). The County of Larimer offers its own market which is run by its Master Gardener volunteers on Saturday mornings starting in mid May. Please note their return to their "original" location in the Courthouse parking lot. There is also a market on Thursday mornings in Estes Park, and Thursday afternoons in Berthoud The Colorado Department of Agriculture maintains a listing of all the registered farmers' markets in Colorado in its 2014 Colorado Farm Fresh Directory.
