Saturday Market Season
Join the GFM Saturdays through Nov. 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m..
The market is located on Main
and Virginia, conveniently located right in the heart
of Gunnison's historic Main Street, with excellent restaurants and
enticing shopping all around. The market moves indoors Oct. 12 to
Field Heritage Center
(county fairgrounds) located at 275
S. Spruce St (a few blocks south of Safeway).
There will be a wide variety of vendors selling fresh fruits and
vegetables, baked goods, beef, pork, eggs, cheese, honey, herbs,
flowers, wine, granola, crafts and more! The majority of the produce
is from the North Fork Valley, just on the other side of the West
Elks, but there will be a handful of local vendors offering some
of the finest, tastiest, Gunnison grown food.
Live enterainment will be featured each week along with kids activities
and cooking demos. For breakfast sample organic, sourdough bread
from Mt.Ovens or a fresh pastry from Fresh Breads and Pastries.
Lunch has plenty of options too -- Innerfire Mobile offers wood
fired pizza, Colorado Lucky Dog's has all natural brats and dog's
on a stick for the kiddos to drink BOOCH has plenty of herbal kombucha
flavors such as lavender or hibiscus.
Each week's Farmers Market is an exciting event! Perhaps you'd
like to join the crew of volunteers who put it on; if so, drop
us a line. Or maybe you'd like to sell your produce, food, or
wares at the market - in that case, check out our vendor
information page for a 2013 vendor
application. If you are a non-profit wanting to participate,
non-profit application. If you are interested in becoming a
Cottage Food Producer and you sell non-potentially hazardous
food (tea, spcies, dehydrated produce, seeds, nuts, honey, jam,
jelly, fruit butter, candy and certain types of baked goods), check
Farm to Market and the Cottage
Food Producer Check-List.
Whether you come as a customer, a vendor, a volunteer or all three(!),
we know that you'll enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and general
good times at the Gunnison Farmers Market. We're looking forward
to seeing old friends and making new ones.
