Parker Farmers Market brings food and fun to Mainstreet

Posted

Residents of Parker and beyond enjoyed some cloud cover as they explored the stalls of the town’s farmers market Aug. 15.

The weekly market has more than 100 vendors including four vegetable growers and three Western Slope fruit growers. Other things sold by vendors include bouquets, cutting boards, steaks, houseplants, kettle corn, burritos and pastries. Many of the booths are represented by local businesses from the Parker area.

The town government also has a stall at the farmers market where residents can learn more about the town’s various programs and talk with town council members about issues or news in their community. 

On Aug. 15, councilmembers John Diak, Joshua Rivero and Todd Hendreks manned the booth, handing out bags and talking with market-goers. That same day, the market was bustling as attendees brought their children and pets through the street. 

The Parker Farmers Market season opened on May 9 and will run until October. It’s open every Sunday on Mainstreet downtown from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
