Farm Fresh Directory available

Danielle Trotta

The latest version of an annual publication is now available to offer information about farmers’ markets, wineries and other agricultural attractions in Colorado.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture publishes the Colorado Farm Fresh Directory. The 2022 edition is also available in Spanish. 

“The Farm Fresh Directory gives Colorado locals and visitors a guide to the state’s impressive farmers markets culture, agritourism and other fun food, beverage and agriculture events,” said Danielle Trotta, manager of the Colorado Proud Program.

“Farm stands and markets keep Coloradans directly connected to the agricultural industry; help shorten the supply chain; and bring fresh, locally grown produce straight to our homes,” Trotta said.

The 2022 Colorado Farm Fresh Directory features a variety of businesses selling directly to the public, including more than 200 farms and ranches as well as Community Supported Agriculture programs, farmers markets, roadside stands and u-pick operations. 

The Colorado Farm Fresh Directory also includes listings of wineries as well as restaurants using local ingredients. The director lists corn mazes, pumpkin patches and other seasonal activities. In addition, the free directory includes a crop calendar, tips for picking Colorado produce and other resources.
