Have you been to the Ridgway Farmers Market yet? If you haven’t checked out this great opportunity to support farmers, local agriculture, and small businesses, the market is returning this Friday, September 6. Why not take the opportunity to spruce up your next meal with some fresh ingredients.
For those unfamiliar with Ridgway Farmers Market, let’s delve a little deeper into what it’s all about. The Ridgway Farmers Market started about nineteen years ago thanks to efforts of a woman going by the name of Jane Bennett. Its original purpose was to promote and boost Colorado agriculture, largely in the Western Slope. The market would focus on being a convenient venue with competitive, affordable prices. The initial market made its debut on Sunday, July 9, 2000 at the Ouray County Fairgrounds in Ridgway. A couple of years later in 2012, the market moved its operations over to Ridgway’s Hartwell Park.
Being that it’s a farmers market, expect to come across just about anything you might need to make a delectable meal at the Ridgway Farmers Market. The fresh goods at Roots of Yore, seasonal veggies courtesy of Yurstead Farms, Grand Mesa Creamery’s dairy selection, and baked goods are all sold here. There are also choices beyond food, including jewelry, pottery, toys made by hand, and much more.
Ridgway Farmers Market is open on Friday but its last day for 2019 is October 11.
