The TCFMA board of directors wants to thank the community for its support over the past 30 years. But all good things must at least change, so as we enter the 31st season we will need to do so with some new board members and officers, a new market manager and more volunteers and hopefully a few new vendors to join our awesome Vendor List from past years.
We are currently seeking a market manager. See the ad in the Classified section of the Courier and Gazette soon. We are also seeking new board members and volunteers as several have moved or retired. Contact Joe Davis if you are interested in pursuing the possibility. If you have an organization that would be interested in helping run the Farmers Market, please contact us to discuss possibilities.
We will be opening the website to take Vendor Applications for Summer 2021 in early March. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and this page.
The Woodland Park Farmers Market has been in operation since 1990, and an award-winning market for the past two decades, both statewide and nationally. The TCFMA board would love to hear from you all about how much the market gives to the community, and how you’d like to see it continuing and adapting during a time of uncertainty and change.
Market Manager position: Open until Filled. Part time year-round. On-site Fridays June-October. (Pay negotiable. Contact Joe Davis at _832-483-6958 or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email resume to email@example.com)
The Summer Market is in Memorial Park and on Henrietta Avenue and Center Street.
Summer season starts first Friday in June, and goes all through September.
Fridays, 8am - 1pm

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!
