The Summer Market is our primary market. It runs every Friday, 8:00am - 1:00pm, from the beginning of June until the end of September at Memorial Park in beautiful Woodland Park, Colorado.
We welcome a variety of agricultural, prepared food, food trucks, and a few specialty art vendors from Colorado. While we attempt to stay as local as possible, due to Teller County's high altitude and harsh environment, our agricultural vendors travel from places as far as Pueblo, Palisade and other areas on the Western Slope. You will find a wide variety of produce as well as wonderful baked goods, pickles, jams and jellies, sweet treats, and specialty wellness products at the market.
We welcome representatives from our many local non-profits to set up booths and share information about their services. Some of our main non-profit vendors include the CSU-Extension Office, Teller Public Health, and TCRAS.
You will also find out amazing sponsors at the market. And, we allow local merchant business to set up one time per summer.
Enjoy Live Music from local artists and every market!
Enjoy special programs such as visiting dance troops, performances by local theater troops, wildlife demonstrations, and other educational programs.
The Woodland Park Arts and Crafts Fair also sets up with us every Friday showcasing a variety of talented artists and crafters.
Applications open late winter and are open throughout the entire summer season.
Our Vendors come from all over Colorado and provide a variety of products to choose from. Including, Colorado fruits and vegetables, fresh baked bread, honey, coffee, food trucks, and more. We have space for 100 vendors, providing a large variety of products.

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.
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.
