The Parker Farmers market will remain open for the winter due to increased interest. If you have never been to the Parker Farmers Market on Main street in Parker Colorado, you’ve been missing out. It’s a lot of fun and it was rated the best farmer’s market in the Denver area for 2014 by The Denver A-List.
There are about 100 local vendors selling a wide variety of products, such as fresh locally grown vegetables, meats from local ranchers including buffalo, Elk, and chicken. There are also:
- coffee vendors
- arts & crafts
- pasta vendors
- specialty soaps
- seasoned olive oils
and let’s not forget the Denver Broncos Jersey’s! The list goes on.
More Farmers Market Market Information
The market is located on Main Street just east of Parker Road and continues for a few blocks. As this year progressed, attendance and interest kept going up. So now, for the first time the market will remain open during the winter months. Since it’s outside and, yes, we occasionally get snow in Douglas County, the market always closed down for the winter. The outdoor operation closed October 26.
Since interest has been so high this year, the market will remain open indoors beginning November 16 with about 60 vendors. It will run through April 19, 2015. 10am-2pm Sundays only. Closed December 28, January 4, April 5 for Holidays. It will be located indoors at the Sierra Middle School, 6651 E Pine Lane, Parker, CO 80138. The school is located near South Parker Road and Pine Lane. The indoor venue also helps The Douglas County School District with additional revenue from leasing out the space. That sounds like a win-win situation.
Bring the family, grab a snack, get some fresh local food, early Christmas gifts, and enjoy Parker Colorado in Douglas County.
