This past Sunday, Colorado Farm & Art Market had a Season Kickoff Party at the Margarita at Pine Creek. It was fantastic to see a lot of people celebrating the upcoming market season even though it was overcast and chilly.
Tickets were $25 for adults, $20 for uniformed service and students, and kids 12 and under were free. There was plenty of delicious food and drinks along with live music, and an art activity table for the kids.
There were so many amazing items donated to the silent auction, here are just a few shots of some of those items!
The Colorado Farm & Art Market is the only cooperative farmers’ market in Colorado Springs. Colorado Farm & Art Market is proud to feature farmers, ranchers, artists, and food vendors that are all local and sell only what they have produced. Each vendor undergoes a jury process to ensure the highest quality and only the freshest, Colorado only grown, and seasonally available produce will be offered at the markets.
The Margarita at Pine Creek’s Chef Eric Viedt and his staff prepared a delicious meal with donated food items from Colorado Farm & Art Market farmers and food vendors. A nice selection of beer was donated by local brewery Bristol Brewing Company as well. The Mitguards provided the live music.
If you weren’t able to make it to the Kickoff Party, please be sure to check out Colorado Farm and Art Market on Wednesdays 3-7PM at The Fine Arts Center Sculpture Garden and on Saturdays 9AM-1PM at the Margarita at Pine Creek. There will be live music and other activities on each market day. There’s no better way to support community and Southern Colorado farmers, ranchers, artists, and food vendors! June 15th until October 15th!
