Two Farmer’s Markets in Town

If you’re interested in shopping for fresh produce and baked goods that were grown and prepared here in Laramie, you are in luck! Laramie is home to not one, but two Farmer’s Markets.

The Laramie Farmer’s Market is hosted by the Laramie Downtown Business Association and is located near Grand Avenue and 1st Street in downtown Laramie. The market is held every Friday in July, August and September from 3 – 7 p.m.

The Laramie Farmer’s Market offers a wide variety to choose from, including: baked goods, cheese, crafts, eggs, herbs, vegetables, honey, jams, meats, poultry, prepared foods and soap.

If shopping on Fridays does not fit into your schedule, you can try the Laramie Local Community Market (Laramie LOCO Market) which is held each Thursday in Undine Park near South 7th Street and East Park Avenue.

The Laramie LOCO Market offers cherries, apricots, salad greens, kale, tomatoes, and other produce. The market also has cheese, gluten free products, tortillas and baked goods for sale.

The Laramie LOCO Farmer’s Market opens at 3 p.m. on Thursday afternoons. Themes for the 2014 summer calendar include: July 17 – Water, July 24 – Baseball, July 31 – Bike Rodeo. In August the Farmer’s Market will feature: Aug. 7 – Dog Days, Aug. 14 – Bird Day, Aug. 21 – Conservation Day, and on Aug. 28 – Welcome Back.
