Farmers Market News
Wheat Ridge has a beautiful array of fresh fruits and vegetables available at the Farmers Market every Thursday from 11am-3pm.
The market is located in the parking lot in front of Big Lots, 4260 Wadsworth Blvd, in Wheat Ridge.
This season the Farmers Market will accept Food Stamp (EBT) benefits at all eligible vendors. These vendors sell Colorado grown fruit, vegetables, milk, meat, salsas, beverages, pickled and canned veggies, rice, oils, sweets, pastries and more. This is great news for consumers shopping for healthy food choices.
Your choice to support Colorado farmers by eating more fresh fruits and vegetables will also benefit your families’ health.
