Loveland Farmers’ Market at Fairgrounds Park
Hurry! The season for fresh produce is almost over! Grab your baskets and bags and head over to the Farmers’ Market at Fairgrounds Park in Loveland, Colorado, for the final month of the event.
Held every Sunday since June 30, the Farmers’ Market has provided Loveland with a great weekend event for the past few months. Make sure you take advantage of all the market has to offer before it’s too late! Sept. 29 is the final day to enjoy all the fresh produce, meat, preserves, crafts, and more—all locally grown and produced.
The event takes place weekly at 700 S. Railroad Avenue, encompassing all of Pavilion 1 and half of Pavilion 2 at the far north end of Fairgrounds Park.
Fresh produce at the event comes from Loveland vendors such as Duck Duck Farms, Grateful Gardener, Haven Rock House Farms, Inc., Jeffrey Family Fruit, Leffler Family Farms, Miller Farms, Sunflower Lane, and Tigges Farm.
Fresh food isn’t all that’s available at the Loveland Farmers’ Market, I should add. In September, you can find live entertainment from The Seers (acoustic soul and Electric Blues) and Noah Peterson (saxophonist and composer).
On a philanthropic note, Foraged Feast, a Colorado-based non-profit that recovers locally grown food from public spaces, private homes, and farmers for local food shelters will be in attendance. The organization spends each Sunday at the Loveland Farmers’ Market to recover any produce that would otherwise go unused or wasted, delivering it to a local food pantry.
I highly encourage you to support Loveland food and craft producers by attending this great weekly event in September. Again, this is the final month before the cold begins to settle in over Colorado, so get out to Fairgrounds Park while you can!
