It's a great place to support our local foodshed and economy. All of the vendors work extremely hard to provide their community with the freshest, healthiest of foods and I think they should be rewarded. Thank you Durango Farmers Market!

Besides that I love singing there & appreciate that Farmers Market supports music & musicians, the healthy food, special people, wares & services are exceptional. That it is outside & local to downtown makes it very pleasant & convenient to access & visit. And yes, I get to see people I don't normally see when singing or out at night.

good produce, well displayed, very friendly atmosphere and NO dogs allowed which has irritated a few but it's nice to walk among the folks present and not have to worry about dogs and inconsiderate owners. Great location and lots of support folks standing by.

Spending a Saturday morning at the Durango Farmers Market is such fun. You enjoy the outdoors and see lots of people you know... some you may not have seen for a while, so it's great to catch up. Buying locally grown, yummy produce is the topping on the cake. Everyone is friendly and smiling and enjoying the day!

Locally raised fruits, vegetables and meat have multiple benefits: tastier, healthier, and as for the animals, raised more humanely, not to mention supporting your neighbors. Plus it's a fun, community event.

They truly allow you to "eat local", having everything from veggies, fruit, lamb, chicken, beef, artisan cheese, excellent bread and honey. Most is organic, sustainably harvested, fair-trade and/or grown without pesticides. They also have food such as pastries, coffee and tamales to munch on while shopping or enjoying the live music. It is a local gathering place and includes crafts, plants and massage as well! What more could you ask for?
