The Crested Butte Farmers Market is proud to partner with Mountain Roots to bring wholesome, nutritious food to those in need!
At the end of each market day, the CB Farmers Market donates organic and naturally grown produce, pasture-raised and grass-fed meats and eggs, nutritious breads, as well as other whole foods, supplied by our amazing vendors. These foods are gathered every Sunday and delivered to our partners at Mountain Roots to be distributed via the Backyard Harvest program.
Mountain Roots Backyard Harvest is a food rescue and donation program which connects fresh produce from backyard gardens and farms to residents experiencing food insecurity. Households sign up to receive a free box of fresh food every week that is delivered right to their door. Fresh produce is sourced from backyard gardeners, community gardens, chicken coops, our farms, local farmers, and community donations. This program runs all year long.
