Hide Featured Image

As Coloradans look forward to returning to typical summer activities, farmers’ markets and fresh produce stands are once again becoming the top destinations for outdoor excursions. The Colorado Department of Agriculture’s 37th annual Colorado Farm Fresh Directory helps consumers find farmers’ markets, roadside stands, u-picks, and more.

“This directory gives Coloradans and visitors a guide to the state’s impressive farmers’ markets culture, agritourism, and other fun food, beverage, and agriculture events,” said Colorado proud Program Manager  Danielle Trotta. “Farm stands and markets keep Coloradans directly connected to the agricultural industry, help shorten the supply chain, and bring fresh, locally grown produce straight to our homes.”

The 2021 Colorado Farm Fresh Directory features businesses selling directly to the public, including more than 200 farms, ranches, roadside stands, u-picks, and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, 100 farmers’ markets across the state, as well as 25 new listings. Farm Fresh also includes listings of restaurants that use local ingredients, such as wineries, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and other seasonal activities. In addition, the free directory includes a crop calendar, tips for picking Colorado produce, and other helpful resources.

Longmont Dairy Farm and Royal Crest Dairy customers receive a copy of the publication through the home milk delivery services, reaching approximately 90,0000 customers. The directory is also available for free through various businesses and online here
