Abundance! That’s the best description for the Cheyenne Farmers’ Markets!
I love the feeling of going from booth to booth checking out what each one offers. The smells of fresh produce, roasting peppers and dirt fill the air! It makes me happy just to be there. Thankfully there are regional farmers who work tirelessly to nurture and grow beautiful vegetables and fruit for our enjoyment and nourishment.
Every week now through the beginning of October, Cheyenne offers farmer’s markets on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays in different locations in the city. You’ll find the Tuesday Farmers Market in the Frontier Mall parking lot near Sears from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Look for it until October 1. You’ll find fresh produce grown in the region, homemade jams, local honey, farm fresh eggs, cheese, fresh breads, baked goods, pastas, smoked salmon, BBQ, local meats and non-food items like handmade crafts, alpaca and bison fibers, hand-crafted body care products and wood working creations.
Farmers Market at the Depot Plaza each Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through October 5 hosted by Community Action of Laramie County. Take in the sights as you walk through displays of fresh peaches, berries, cantaloupe, sweet corn, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, roasted peppers, locally produced honey, candy, fresh baked breads, organic produce, trees, plants and flowers. All this while you help to generate income to be used for programs that assist low-income individuals and families. No cash, no problem, EBT, debit and credit are accepted, just stop by the Community Action booth to swipe your card and receive tokens to spend at the market.
Don’t forget to visit the South Cheyenne Sunday Farmers Market held in the Outlaw Saloon parking lot at 312 South Greeley Highway from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Buy some Palisade peaches, pears, apples, tomatoes, Olathe corn, melons, beans, pickling cucumbers, cabbage, zucchini, peppers, baked goods and ristra. You can have your peppers roasted on site.
Have fun, get outdoors, try new veggies, savor the fresh fruit and support regional farmers, bakers, workers and Cheyenne all with a quick trip to one of the three Farmer’s Market!
