Educated produce: the Colorado College Farm Stand

Posted By on Tue, Jul 22, 2014 at 3:04 PM

We certainly aren't complaining about even more options for locally grown produce — just one element of reforming our increasingly effed-up food system. 

But despite our best efforts each spring, we don't always locate or hear from all of the organizations planning to host area farmers markets. So this list we compiled back in April isn't complete — though it features the vast majority of our markets. 

Recently, we became aware of an added Sunday Market in Acacia Park, downtown, and just yesterday we were clued into one more downtown-area market: the Colorado College Farm Stand

Food grown via organic standards on a student-run, 1.5-acre farm just off of Wood Avenue, will be sold Saturdays (through the end of growing season) from 9 a.m. to noon in the Slocum Hall parking lot, where Tejon Street intersects with the south edge of campus, on Cache La Poudre Street. 

Shoppers are encouraged to pay in cash and bring their own reusable grocery bags.
