Huerfano County – The Spanish Peaks Chamber of Commerce and Spanish Peaks Business Alliance are pleased to announce a ribbon-cutting celebration for the La Veta Farmers Market, which is celebrating their 10th season this year. The market is located next to the La Veta Public Library. The market starts at 3pm this Thursday, May 27th with the ribbon cutting starting at 3:15. All necessary COVID precautions will be taken.
Market director John Costea wrote the following when asked about the growth of the market in ten years. “The La Veta farmers market was started 10 years ago by a group of people from La Veta & Gardner. It’s had its ups & downs but has always come through. The market would not be here without the support of our customers, the town of La Veta, the La Veta library, the Francisco Fort and of course the vendors. The market is free to vendors, a rarity, has its own low income 2 for 1 programs that are funded solely by donations and strives to give its friends and neighbors quality local products at reasonable prices. A big shout out to Shii Koeii Farm and Red House Pies, two vendors who have been there since day one. When you buy locally you’re helping a neighbor stay in business and most of that money goes right back into the community. Thanks for your continued support over these ten years.”
The La Veta Farmers Market is open each Thursday from 3-5pm next to the La Veta Public Library. Favorite vendors Shii Koeii Farm, Red House Pies, Dannys, Landon, and Karen Shaw will be back with some new vendors too! There will be free fudge while supplies last!
