Huerta Urbana Farmers Market
August 19, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Friday, repeating until October 28, 2022
Huerta Urbana Farmers Market is a pay-what-you-can market dedicated to increasing food access in the Globeville Elyria-Swansea (GES) neighborhoods.
Presented by Kaiser Permanente, the Huerta Urbana Farmers Market serves as a fun, educational, equitable and thriving community gathering space that is affordable for all. The market operates in collaboration with vendors and community partners using a pay-what-you-can model supporting access to fresh, healthy produce as well as local economic development. Now in its third year, and formally known as Globeville Community Farmers Market, the market is moving to its permanent home at Focus Points Family Resource Center.
The market’s unique pay-what-you-can model provides affordable access to healthy, seasonal produce and other pantry essentials by giving customers the option to pay a reduced cost for the items they purchase. Customers can:
- pay full price for their items
- pay what they can (whether a few dollars or nothing at all)
- or “pay it forward” by paying more than full price to support a family facing food insecurity.
SNAP and WIC are accepted.
Dollars raised through the market go back into a fund to continue reimbursing farmers and producers while covering the cost of additional groceries for community members in need.
We hope to see you there!
