The Larimer County Farmers’ Market is managed by Colorado State University Extension staff and Colorado Master Gardeners in Larimer County oversee market operations during each market. Our market has served our community since 1975 when a group of backyard gardeners decided to share their excess produce with their community. Today, the market continues to be a vibrant place in the community for growers and producers to connect with the community. 

Also, thanks to our connection to CSU, we provide a variety of expertise at the market. This includes information about gardening and preserving food safely.

The market is a growers-only market, which means that all products offered must be grown, produced, or made by our local vendors. We are proud to include around 100 vendors per market season. Vendors offer a wide variety of items including fruits, vegetables, coffee, flowers, baked goods, art, and crafts.

When you shop at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market, you support our mission to cultivate local food producers, connect the community to fresh food, and provide a welcoming environment for everyone.

Thank you for shopping local!
