Woodland Park Farmers Market is run by volunteers. As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on volunteers from the community to help our market be a fun and inviting place. It’s a great way to get to know our vendors and other members of the community.
Open from 8am–1pm in the summer and 9am-1pm in the winter, we need weekly volunteers before, during and after market. Volunteers may work the number of hours and market days they wish.
Contact us if you wish to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
Partnered with Ogallala Commons the market usually employs two interns in summer to help run the market. Each of the interns also has a personal side project to work on, to help the market and community in any way they see fit.
Please contact Market Manager and Intern Supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the Contact Form for information on intern opportunities.
The Woodland Park Farmers' Market has been an annual event since 1990. It has received several awards and has 100+ vendors annually at the outdoor summer market.

The Market is not a place to bring pets that exhibit signs of fear, aggression or over-excited behavior. Please make sure everyone remains safe at our market by following these rules.
Q: Why is the summer Woodland Park Farmers Market open on Fridays instead of the weekend?
A: When the market started many of our farmers/growers/vendors were already committed to markets in other cities on Saturdays and Sundays. By having our market on Friday, we greatly increase the number of outstanding vendors for you to find. It also gives our volunteers the weekend free!
Q: Why does the summer Woodland Park Farmers Market close at 1pm?
A: Many of our farmers/growers/vendors requested the 1pm closing time. They need to get back to the farms/gardens to pick produce in the cooler afternoon/evening hours for the following days markets. Weather is also a factor - we who live in the mountains know that when summer rain showers come, it is usually after 1pm.

Q: Can I purchase arts and crafts at the Woodland Park Farmers Market?
A: We have a small number of arts and crafts. We strictly stick to a minimum 60% agriculture/garden/food connection…but we do have some craft vendors who hand-make their product. There is a separate Woodland Park Arts & Crafts Fair, privately owned, and operating at the same day & time as the farmers' market, in an adjacent site on Henrietta Avenue. Visit their Facebook page for more info. *Note, Market Bucks and SNAP vouchers can only be spent in the farmers' market.
Q: Does the city of Woodland Park run the Woodland Park Farmers Market?
A: No, the WPFM is governed by the Teller County Farmers Market Association, an independent non-profit entity with 501(c)3 status supported by merchant fees, donations, sponsors & grants. The market operates on a small budget that must support a large array of operating expenses that includes insurance, permits, licenses, signage, utilities, disposal, improvements, marketing, some part-time staff and more.
Q: Why do we believe the Market place is temporarily a private place?
A: While city parks, streets, sidewalks, are public fora, and the City does not impose content-based restrictions as long as it is peaceful, reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions on speech are permissible. Restrictions must be content neutral, serve a significant government interest, be narrowly tailored, and leave open adequate alternatives for expression. Time, place, and manner restrictions upheld by SCOTUS include restrictions on picketing on sidewalks adjacent to schools, restrictions on distributing literature or soliciting funds at a state fair, creation of a buffer zone around an abortion clinic, restrictions on a sidewalk leading to a post office, and restrictions on placing campaign signs on public utility poles. An argument can be made that we are not discriminating on content since it covers all political speech; a better argument is that while we occupy the space, it is not a public forum. Not even the sidewalks.
This argument, the one I will make to people who ask, is that while we are renting/occupying City space, that space becomes what in legal terms is called a “leasehold interest,” a type of private property right – as though we rented the UPCC in its entirety and locked the doors -- thus making it our space while we occupy it and thus not subject to Government’s public forum rules.
