Granby Farmers Market begins this Friday, June 6
Sky-Hi Daily News
For the third year in a row, the Granby Farmer’s Market will make available farm fresh produce on Friday nights through the summer.
Each year, the market grows, with this summer’s number of artisans doubling over last year.
Booth organizers Sharon Brenner of the Granby Chamber of Commerce and Carol Morales of Morales Farms say 10 vendors will be joining the regular market scene; some coming back from last year, others making their booth debut.
Salmon, brats, produce, baked goods, cheeses, handmade soaps, flowers and gardening tips will all be featured this summer.
The majority of vendors are local residents, Morales said.
“Over half of the market is supported by local vendors. We’re very fortunate to have such gifted people. One of our goals is to continue reaching out to Grand County artisans to keep this market going and to show people what we have to offer in Grand County.”
Granby’s Farmer’s Market takes place in Granby’s town parking area, downtown between Ian’s Mountain Bakery and Country Home Outfitters.
Vendors display their wares from 3 to 7 p.m. each Friday, June through October.
On the first Friday of each month, including this Friday, “Friday Frenzy” takes place with extended hours (4 to 8 p.m.), with entertainment and a beer tent. (The July Frenzy will be moved to the second Friday because of the Fourth of July holiday.)
Morales, one of the founding vendors, said the event “brings activity into the old hometown of Main Street Granby and brings back the family, small-town atmosphere. Granby didn’t have that for awhile and now we do. It was missing ” that community feel, and now it’s coming back and coming back strong.”
