About Huerta Urbana Farmers Market – What is a Pay-What-You-Can Farmers Market?

Now in its third year, the Huerta Urbana Farmers Market (formerly Globeville Community 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. 

The market’s 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. 

There are three ways to pay for goods at the market:

  1. Customers may pay full price for their items
  2. Customers may pay what they can, whether this is a few dollars or nothing at all.
  3. Customers may ‘pay it forward’ by paying more than full price to support a family facing food insecurity.

Dollars raised through the market will go back into a fund to continue reimbursing farmers and producers while covering the cost of additional groceries for community members in need. Additionally, grant funding and donations will allow organizers to reimburse vendors so that equity for famers is included and no stakeholder forgoes their needs.
