It’s no secret that the people of Denver are some of the healthiest in the country, and they have the great outdoors of Colorado to thank for most of that. However, all that time spent in nature can really cause you to work up an appetite, and that always leads to a craving for some food fresh off the farm. Fortunately, Denver doesn’t have a shortage of farmers’ markets, so maybe your next adventure should be checking out as many of these as you can!
Date: Saturdays (May 5 – October 27) from 8 AM – 1 PM, and Wednesdays (June 13 – September 26) from 9 AM to 1 PM
Location: Cherry Creek Shopping Center There’s a whole series of Fresh Markets around Denver, but the one in Cherry Creek is the largest. It has plenty of food from Colorado, gardening events, musical performances, and more.
Date: Sundays (June 3 – October 28) from 9 AM – 1PM
Location: Sullivan Fountain, East Colfax Ave. and Columbine St., Denver, CO 80218
This is another member of the Fresh Market family, but this one takes place in the City Park. It’s a great opportunity to check a few things off the to-do list – do some healthy shopping and spend some time in the park.
Date: Wednesdays (July 6 – August 31) from 4 PM – 8 PM Location: 7600 Landmark Way, Greenwood Village, CO 80111 This Fresh Market is a new one! It has a great mixture of goods on offer, and it gives you the flexibility to get some fresh foods in the middle of the week.
Date: Thursdays (August 11 – September 1) from 5 PM – 8 PM
Location: 4954 Valentia St, Denver, CO 80216
Colorado Fresh Markets has had a market here on Sunday mornings for quite a while, but they just decided the area would benefit from having one on a weekday evening as well! Who doesn’t like to have some extra time on the weekends?
Date: Saturdays from 9 AM – 3 PM, and Sundays from 10 AM – 2 PM
Location: 7043 West 38th Avenue, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033 This one has an outdoor market during the summer months, but that’s not all. It’s actually an indoor farmers’ market year round, and it’s a great place to buy food and art from local sellers during the colder times of the year.
Date: Wednesdays (June 15 – October 12) from 10 AM – 2 PM Location: 7301 S Santa Fe Dr, Littleton, CO 80120 This market in Littleton has all the usual offerings of a normal market, but it allows you to go on a little journey. You can ride the light rail to get there, and then there’s a tourist tent which will help you explore this historical area.
Date: Sundays (May 15 – November 15) from 9 AM – 1 PM
Location: South Pearl Street, Denver, Colorado 80210
This is another market that’s been around for quite a while, and they have all the local foods that you can handle. Plus, they regularly schedule other events during the market times, so you can have a different experience each week.
Date: Sundays (June 19 – October 16) from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Location: E 29th Ave & Roslyn St, Denver, CO 80238
This is the older sibling of the new pop-up market that’s held during the week, but this one takes place on Sundays. If adding a second day doesn’t convince you that it’s worth visiting, maybe nothing will.
