June 1 – October 5, 2013
Local produce, Colorado wines, hand-spun cheeses, and freshly baked breads are just some of the many products you will find at Golden’s Farmer’s Market. Conveniently located in historic downtown Golden next to Clear Creek, the Farmer’s Market provides the perfect place to find Colorado’s finest foods while also providing an opportunity to enjoy Golden’s natural beauty.
The Farmer’s Market includes live music, free horse-drawn carriage rides and activities for kids. Garden décor, specialty treats, flowers and plants, and hard to find items fill up many of the booths. Enjoy and purchase fresh fruits and veggies, frozen fish and meats, fresh breads, canned condiments and sweets, locally-made wines, plus wonderful pasta and unique cooking ingredients.
Cash, credit cards and checks are accepted. Golden is able to participate in the SNAP – Federal EBT/Food Stamp program on eligible items – namely, non-prepared foods intended to be eaten at home and seeds and plants with which to grow food.
In addition, the wireless machine at the market can also accept debit cards. Market managers will offer $5.00 increments of Market Bucks that can be spent at the market like cash (there is a $1.00 fee for Market Bucks transactions).
Enjoy weekly demos from Jefferson County Master Gardeners, who will cover topics such as container vegetables, kids’ terrarium making, hanging baskets, rock gardening, bulbs, and more. And Jester’s Entertainment, sponsored by Adio Chiropractic, will be on hand with clowns, face painting, magicians and more.
Free parking is available in Golden’s free parking garages just a few blocks from the market. The event also includes a free puppet show for kids.
The Market will run every Saturday, June 1 through October 5, except for Buffalo Bill Days weekend, July 27-28. Times are 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. On Fine Arts Festival weekend (Saturday, August 17th only), the Market will remain open until 4:00 pm. The Market is located in the parking lot just west of the Library on 10th Street.
