Selling local food? Pull up a booth.

We are dedicated to strengthening our food system by supporting, promoting, and expanding access to locally grown and made products for all members of our community. We do this by operating producer-only seasonal farmers markets and a year-round online marketplace that connect and build relationships between local farmers, producers, and enthusiastic eaters.

What ‘producer-only’ means to us

Every farmer in our market grows their own produce and raises their own animals. Each of our producers and prepared food vendors craft their food in Colorado and source ingredients locally when possible.

How we vet our vendors

Vendors are selected to sell in the market based on the following values:

Producer-Only

As a vendor, you grow your own produce, raise your own animals, or prepare and package your own food locally. We do not permit reselling or co-packing.

Locally Sourced

You support local agriculture in the Front Range and Colorado by growing, producing, and sourcing as much as possible in Boulder County.

Quality

You offer high-quality products and ingredients that are delicious, minimally processed, and are free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients and preservatives.

Community Conduct

You practice high standards of customer service and treat vendors, customers, partners, visitors, and market staff with respect and appreciation.

Commitment

You're no fair-weather farmer—you show up for our customers, participate in market-wide programs, and help build a thriving market no matter what.
