Every Saturday, June 2 – October 6, 2018 (excl. July 28 for Buffalo Bill Days)
8:00 AM – 1:00 PM | Parking Lot by Golden Library (10th & Illinois St.)
Founded in 2001, the Golden Farmers Market was designed by the Chamber as a means of bringing people to downtown Golden. The Market was originally held off Washington Avenue where the parking structure now resides. In 2006 the Chamber moved their Market to the parking lot next to the Golden Library where it has been presented for the past 11 years. The Golden Farmers Market is an assembly of vendors in an outdoor public market style, offering produce, food products, prepared cuisine, beverages, vendors, promotional opportunities, entertainment, and other related events as a means of supporting our members, community, city, and a healthy lifestyle.
In 2017 with the support of Centura Health, Jefferson County Public Health, LiveWell Colorado, and Colorado Fresh Markets, our Golden Farmers Market became certified to accept Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Many Coloradans rely on food assistance programs like SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), which serves more than 485,000 Coloradans a month. However, most SNAP recipients receive only $1.41 per meal or $4.23 per day in benefits, making it a challenge to have enough money to buy food for the whole month.
