Prepare Your Palate and Palette for the Colorado Farm and Art Market!

Calling all local food palates and palettes! The Colorado Farm and Art Market made a successful debut June 15 at the FAC Sculpture Garden from 3-7 p.m. The Fine Arts Center is happy to host this weekly event throughout the summer and into the fall. The folks at Colorado Farm and Art Market tell us that they’ve lined up over 35 growers, artisans and foodies for the event.

June 15 - Oct. 12 | 3-7 p.m.
Free and open to the public
Colorado Farm and Art Market features Colorado vendors selling only locally grown or produced items. Join us each Wednesday in the FAC’s outdoor sculpture garden at Dale and Cascade for a selection of farmers and ranchers from the Front Range and the Arkansas River Valley bringing items including grass-fed beef, pastured pork and lamb, free range chickens, better than organic eggs, chemical free vegetables and fruits, and local honey.

The market also has a stunning showcase of local artisans and craftspeople and feature gifts and goodies including handmade lotions and soaps and jewelry, paintings and pottery, handmade cards and clothing.

Gourmet food producers regularly bring tamales, burgers and brats, fresh baked breads and pastries, kettle corn, chips, dips and spreads, and much more.

Come to the market on Wednesdays for food, fun, art, and entertainment for the whole family, and a wonderful sense of community that you can’t find at any grocery store!

SNAP/EBT and debit cards are welcome.

If you need to find the Sculpture Garden, please see the map below; we'll be at the corner of Dale St and Cache La Poudre.

To get us all ready for the artful offerings of local growers, producers, and artisans, here's a slideshow of captivating images provided by market organizers. We won't stop you if you get the itch to paint the plein air scene!
