Denver's oldest farmers market returns to Wheat Ridge

Posted

Summer is fast approaching, and for people looking for fresh food that can only mean one thing — farmers markets.

For the past 37 years Metro Denver Farmers' Market has brought fresh food and local goods to cities all over the Denver area, and they will be continuing that tradition this year with six locations — including one in Wheat Ridge.

The market will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Thursday starting on June 11, at 4260 Wadsworth Blvd.

"It's a very popular event that doesn't just do food, but a lot of different vendors," said market manager John Herian. "The vendors we have vary by market — some do the same markets and some move. It really depends on them."

According to information provided by Toni Starner with the organization, items on sale include gardening and fresh flowers and plants, beef, honey, rice, fresh European breads and pastries, herbs, spices and condiments and ready-to-eat foods.

Market partners like Domenico Farms, Forté Farms, Rocky Mountain Rice Company and Styria Bakery II will be selling their wares.

Some of the vendors who will be part of this year's market include Ant D's Fine Foods which offers jams, jellies, pastries, barbecue and catering, Philpott Goat Dairy which is one of the last traditional goat cheese dairy farms in Colorado using age-old methods for making ricotta and goat cheese and Taspen Organics which sells natural, organic wellness products: herbs, oils, and pure essential oils.

Herian added that there will be other wellness groups and sometimes chiropractors to give advice and demonstrations to shoppers.

One of the focuses of these markets is providing not only healthy food but items from local farmers. The peak season for fruits and vegetables is June and items will start appearing in the markets as soon as the farmers pick them.
