Durango, Colorado is a community that is tightly woven and significantly strives to better one another and grow as a whole. That is the overall goal of the Durango Farmers Market! The farmers market will be open for business once again starting Saturday, May 9th and will continue until October. The vendors from this market are not only just from Durango, but also the entire region! La Plata, Montezuma, Archuleta, San Juan CO and San Juan NM counties participate in this awesome event. Come out and see for yourself all the amazing produce, meats, flowers and other services that the farmers market offers!
SOCIAL DISTANCE GUIDELINES AND RESTRICTIONS
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE DURANGO FARMERS MARKET FACEBOOK PAGE:
ALL MARKET VENDORS AND STAFF WILL BE WEARING FACE COVERINGS for the entire month of May – longer than current recommendations. Customers are not currently required to wear face coverings to attend the market, but are advised to do so. This is consistent with all current local and state guidelines.
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FARMERS
The unbeatable beauty about this market is you’re not only getting the best of the best when it comes to healthy products, but you’re also supporting the local economy! Not only do all the hard-working growers come from the region, but also all the ready-to-eat vendors make everything using freshly curated products.
Come out and join the fun! There is always live music playing from a local band that rocks out while you shop. Freshly brewed coffee and other fun beverages are available as well as ready to eat pastries, pizza, tacos and more!
“We believe that by featuring locally produced foods and goods, we provide a healthier, more enjoyable quality of life in the Durango region.”
SNAP AND MARKET BUCKS
This is the way that Durango Farmers Market takes an extra step in giving back to the community! SNAP is a program that provides equal access to those with an Electronic Benefits Transfer card. You can access these benefits at the Durango Farmers Market information booth and they will provide you with SNAP coupons to use as you shop. The Double Up Food Bucks Program can also be accessed for any EBT members. This allows up to $20 in double the spending power and can be used at any participating market or farm in Colorado.
“Market Bucks” is the Durango Farmers Market form of currency in case you forgot to bring cash! You can use your card or check to redeem market bucks at no extra ATM cost to you! Just head on over to the information booth to get some bucks for spending. Happy shopping!
