Farmers Markets have been declared essential businesses in Colorado because they form a crucial link in our food supply chain. This year, perhaps more than ever, our local producers will be critical in providing our Valley with access to fresh, wholesome food! Shopping at farmers markets can be an effective way to safely be part of a community and keep you and your loved ones healthy!
The CBFM will open as scheduled on Sunday, May 30th 2021. We have worked closely with our State and County officials to once again ensure an environment that will be as welcoming and safe as possible. Gunnison County has moved into the “green” designation on the Corona-Meter, which means we will no longer be requiring masks on vendors or customers, and we will not be limiting the number of shoppers in the market area this year. We will continue to provide hand washing and sanitizing stations for customers, we will keep some space between vendor booths to avoid crowding and customers are discouraged from eating or drinking within the market area.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, we found it necessary to cancel both our Sprouts Booth and our Community Outreach Booths in 2020. We feel confident that after a couple of weeks of smooth operation in 2021, we will be allowed to welcome these booth spaces back into the market.
We look forward to serving the community this summer!
