Colorado Master Gardeners in Larimer County

About Us

Join us each Saturday from May through October in Old Town Fort Collins.

The Larimer County Farmers’ Market is managed by Colorado State University Extension staff and Colorado Master Gardeners in Larimer County oversee market operations during each market. Our market has served our community since 1975 when a group of backyard gardeners decided to share their excess produce with their community. Today, the market continues to be a vibrant place in the community for growers and producers to connect with the community. Read more about our history in this article by the NoCo Food Cluster: Member Spotlight: Larimer County Farmers’ Market

Also, thanks to our connection to CSU, we provide a variety of expertise at the market. This includes information about gardening and preserving food safely.

The market is a growers-only market, which means that all products offered must be grown, produced, or made by our local vendors. We are proud to include around 100 vendors per market season. Vendors offer a wide variety of items including fruits, vegetables, coffee, flowers, baked goods, art, and crafts.

When you shop at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market, you support our mission to cultivate local food producers, connect the community to fresh food, and provide a welcoming environment for everyone.

Thank you for shopping local!

Currency accepted at the market

All of our vendors accept cash and Market Bucks, and some may accept checks and credit cards. If you need to purchase Market Bucks, then stop by the green CSU Extension tents in front of the Courthouse Entrance. Market Bucks come in $5 increments and can be used all season.

We also accept SNAP benefits and Double Up Food Bucks. Thanks to the Double Up Food Bucks program, we can match up to $20 in SNAP with Double Up Food Bucks. Simply bring your EBT card to the green CSU Extension tents to use your benefits. Learn more about the program on the Double Up Food Bucks website.

SNAP benefits accepted at LCFM
