Buy fresh and local at farmers’ markets

The High Country’s farmers, growers, producers and artisans find a way each week to bring their fresh bounties to your table, with multiple farmers’ markets in the area.

Area growers and producers have plenty to offer this summer, including tomatoes, squashes, cucumbers, greens, apples, honey, peppers and much more. You’ll also find locally raised, grass-fed beef, chicken and pork; pastas, pastries and bread; jams, jellies and cheeses; and arts and crafts from local artisans.
