The Larimer County Community Corrections Farmers’ Market is back this year and opens every Friday beginning August 4th from 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon, just south of Prospect and east of Timberline Rd at 2255 Midpoint Drive in Ft. Collins.

The Farmers’ Market is carried out by clients in the intensive residential drug and alcohol treatment program. Community Corrections clients grow, harvest, and sell garden-fresh vegetables, herbs, and berries at their stand. The farmer’s market program will be open every week until the produce runs out.

The produce is sold on a donation basis. At the end of the market season the majority of the proceeds will be donated to local charities that often serve their clients. The market takes cash and checks, but not credit cards.

Who Works the Farmers Market?
