After an extensive review of many qualified candidates the Woodland Park Farmers Market decided on a single candidate to replace Judy Crummett after 30 years of service with the Farmers Market. Lara Maas (Shadwick) is joining the Woodland Park Farmers Market as the marketing manager starting 1 March 2021. She has already started the process of learning the job from Judy Crummett. She draws from extensive experience in healthcare, marketing, and community building. She has a passion for local, healthy food and the community that comes together through a regular open market. Lara has the experience of working with a large Farmers Market in Missoula Montana where one market became three markets.
Lara lived in Colorado for 20 years then moved to Montana for 10 years. She currently lives in Colorado Springs with her two children ages 10 and 17. Lara is in the process of fixing up her dad’s house in Woodland Park and plans to make Woodland Park her permanent home. Lara has a BS in Biology and Psychology and an MBA in Marketing and International Business. She also has her own website, www.healingheartsart.com. Healing Hearts Art is an artist committed to improving the health and wellbeing of people interacting with their art.
While health and bringing nutritious food to people in our community is her passion she is also an accomplished athlete. She played basketball at UCCS and was an amateur triathlete qualifying and competing in national and world championship triathlons.
We all feel lucky that Lara decided to take over the Market Manager job. During the summer market (starting 4 June) please come to the pavilion and say hello to Lara.

For Immediate Release
May 27, 2020
Woodland Park CO: The Woodland Park Summer Farmers Market will open, as scheduled, on Friday, June 5, at 8:00 a.m. Unless something causes a change, it will be held each Friday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm through Sept. 25, 2020.
Due to the COVID19 public health crisis, and various city, county and state mandates in connection with public gatherings, and in order to maintain the safety of vendors, volunteers and customers as best as possible, this Summer Market will be very different than we all anticipated, expected, and desired.
The Summer Market will be scaled down to about half the usual number of vendors each week. Participating vendors will be limited to food and produce. The scaled-down market will be a “back to our past” Street Market, on Henrietta and Center Streets, next to Memorial Park. Memorial Park itself, as well as its bathroom facilities, will remain closed, according to the City of Woodland Park. One disabled-access porta-potty and one hand-wash station will be provided at the Market by TCFMA. Market Bucks will be available, as will SNAP and Double Up.
There will be no entertainment, no on-site food consumption, no “hanging out.” You may see unfamiliar barricades: please honor them. There will be an increased law enforcement presence to help with traffic and crowd control if needed for any reason. Social Distancing of six feet by all present is required, particularly while waiting at Market booths; empty spaces will be left between booths to accommodate this. Vendors, volunteers and staff will wear masks and gloves at all times; customers are strongly urged to do the same. We believe the Farmers Market, as an “essential business,” is not subject to limited numbers requirements, and open-air gatherings are thought to be safer than those in enclosed spaces, but we are still required to adhere to social distancing, masks and gloves, and we need to be sensible about precautions.
To our customers, as in May, vendors’ contact info will be prominent on our website. Customers are urged to pre-order. Vendors will pre-bag your items to hand off to you at the Market. If restrictions are relaxed and Public Health Orders are changed for July – September, we will let the community know. Meanwhile these guidelines will apply to June Markets. Our vendors are looking forward to serving you as they have done for 30 years. We and they welcome all in our community and thank you in advance for keeping it an open, safe, peaceful, apolitical venue for all.
The TCFMA Board appreciates the support of the City and our community and thanks you all for your compliance and your patronage. Thank you all, too, for including us once again in the Best of Teller!
