One of the most successful programs run by the market, Young Entrepreneurs encourages kids aged 8-18 to test and sell their product ideas at the Farmers Market.
The program allows these young people to get creative with their ideas and then put them out for consumption at the market.
*The Farmers Market charges a reduced daily rate when they set up a booth at the market. They also cover the insurance costs with an umbrella policy for all Young Entrepreneurs. If available, the market will supply a tent thus making participating in the market very affordable for the kids*
Where else could you get a booth with the potential of 3,000 to 5,000 people to check out your stuff?
Come on out and support the entrepreneurial spirit of these kids. This year there will be up to 6 Young Entrepreneurs per week at the Summer Market.
The market employs youth interns during the summer to help run the market. The interns take part in almost all aspects of running the physical market including helping with set-up and take-down, interacting with vendors, running our Shop the Market and Information booth and taking on special projects of interest.
Through the internship, interns learn valuable skills such as time management, team work, and valuable interpersonal skills.
Please contact the Market Managers at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the Contact Form for information on intern opportunities.
The Longer Table is a program in which the Woodland Park Farmers Market is happy to participate. At the end of every market food is collected from participating vendors, and picked up for distribution at the Aspen Mine Center. Customers are invited to buy an extra item for the Longer Table basket when shopping for themselves.
We’re partnering with The Aspen Mine Center, located in southern Teller County where food insecurity and access to nutritious food present challenges. This organization serves families in need through a variety of resources. By working with us they can add fresh, healthy produce to their outreach. Your generous contributions will make a difference for this community.
Where: our market team will come to you! If you have your items set aside we’ll simply pick them up.
When: Collections will be accepted every week beginning at 12:pm and continuing until 1:00pm.
What: we’ll consider anything you would like to donate.
Please bring any market food items you would like to donate to the market information booth.
Woodland Park Farmers Market supports Vendors aged 70+ through our Seriously Senior Program. The Market offers a reduced booth rate to seniors and for some seniors, is able to provide insurance coverage for a small fee.
SNAP stands for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It has replaced the federal food stamp program, but it retains the same function: giving lower-income families more funds for foods. To use SNAP at our market, come to the Market Manager’s booth and swipe your EBT card (electronic benefit transfer) to withdraw SNAP funds. We'll give you those funds in the form of paper SNAP bucks you can use to shop with our market vendors for fresh, healthy, take-home foods. The State of Colorado will match SNAP dollars with up to $20 of Double Up coupons per day to be used strictly on Colorado-grown produce. Not sure if you qualify for SNAP benefits?
