The Larimer County Farmers’ Market (LCFM) is a well-recognized, long-established market. Each week, the market hosts an average of 60+ vendors. We strive to have a diverse array of fresh, local products available for our customers.

Vendors apply to the market, pay an application fee, and provide the necessary licenses and certifications to the market managers. Each market, vendors track their sales and check-out with market staff. Vendors pay a weekly sales fee and sales tax.

Musicians at the Market

Nothing starts off a morning of shopping better than upbeat, family-friendly music! We feature volunteer musicians at the market each Saturday during the season. It’s a wonderful opportunity for you to play and be appreciated. You’ll also get a few more fans in the process! 

We provide a tent and access to electricity, and you provide the talent. Musicians receive an honorarium for their time.

2024 Applications:

Feature Your Non-Profit Organization at the Market

As part of our commitment to the community, we offer non-profit organizations a space once or twice per season. There is no cost for a non-profit to be featured at our market, but the organization must receive approval from market management and supply their own equipment.

Due to the large volume of requests, we ask that non-profit organizations fill out an application. Priority is given to those who have been featured at the market before, or those that have a focus on promoting local agriculture or bringing awareness to hunger issues in our community. Because market space is limited, we schedule one non-profit per Saturday throughout the season and we cannot guarantee a space for every non-profit that applies.
