Supporting local farms has become more important than ever. More people are conscious of the benefits of eating a healthy diet and ensuring that they support their local small businesses (and farms) rather than large corporations. One great way to support local farms and your local community while eating a healthier diet is to frequent your local Denver farmers markets.
When you are visiting a farmers market, you are purchasing produce directly from local farmers. This supports the farmers’ businesses rather than spending money at large corporations. The following are some great local farmers markets in your local Denver neighborhood:
Cherry Creek Fresh Farm Market:
The Cherry Creek Fresh Farm Market is the largest farmers market in the Denver area. It’s often referred to as the “Cadillac” of all farmers markets in the area. It’s there where you can find some of the best local farmers and other growers from throughout the Denver area. Local gourmet restaurants and food trucks from throughout the area attend our farmers market at Cherry Creek as well. Farmers Markets in 2021 will run from May 1st to October 30th on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm and on Wednesdays from 9am to 1pm.
Denver Union Station Farmers Market:
The Denver Union Station Farmers Market travels to different areas throughout Denver to sell their products. Popular destinations that they visit regularly include Boulder, Longmont, or Lafayette. Currently, they are selling locally sourced fresh produce such as beets, radishes, potatoes, mushrooms, red onions, and other leafy greens. They represent local farmers and their locally sourced foods. This market is open in various locations on Saturdays from 8am to 2pm as well as in Boulder on Wednesdays from 4pm to 8pm and Lafayette on Thursdays with times to be determined.

The Littleton Farmers Market will run markets in several locations throughout 2021. Dates will vary running from April to September and take place on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) as well as on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Current locations include Southwest Plaza, Lakewood, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, and Clement Park to name a few. You will find a variety of products for sale at their local markets including fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and meats from small, local businesses and growers.
Stanley Farmers Market:
The Stanleys Farmers Market is located right outside the entrance of the Stanley Marketplace. It serves the neighborhoods of Aurora and Stapleton. Other markets pop up throughout the growing season at locations such as Festival Park, Southlands, and Parker’s Farm. Our local farmers markets are proud to source only locally produced goods at our markets. Whether you are looking for fresh fruits/vegetables, cheeses, meats, or other handmade and locally produced household goods such as candles or soaps, the Stanley Farmers Market has something to offer for everyone.
