Locally-Grown Colorado Foods to Look Out For 

With so many options for Denver Farmers Markets in 2021, you’ll never run out of fresh produce for both you and your family! 

Cool nights at altitude make growing certain crops especially fruitful in many areas across Colorado. Here are some notorious foods that locals look out for every year: 

Palisade Peaches 

Ah, that sweet alliterative phrase that we look forward to every year: Palisade peaches. Growing on Colorado’s western slope, you won’t find a riper peach anywhere in the country. 

14 varieties of these organic peaches are grown through the summer months. Watch for harvest to begin in late June, and don’t forget to pick some up at a Denver Farmers Market before they’re gone in September! 

Rocky Ford Melons 

Rocky Ford, Colorado in the southeast portion of the state is one of the nation’s premier melon-growing areas. Whether you’re looking for cantaloupe, honeydew, or watermelon, these summer favorites are available in Denver Farmers Markets everywhere. 

These melons are harvested in early July and picked until late September. Stay on the lookout! 

Pueblo Green Chiles 

New Mexico and Colorado have a longstanding rivalry surrounding who grows the best green chiles, and our best comes out of Pueblo. Whether you’re looking for hot, medium, or mild chiles, your taste buds are sure to be dancing. 

These spicy favorites usually show up on farm stands near the beginning of July. Try them out in jams, breads, stews, or your favorite stir fry! 

Why Shop at Denver Farmers Markets? 

When you shop at Denver Farmers Markets, you keep your dollars local. Not only will you taste the difference in fresh produce, but you’ll also be supporting a wide range of family-owned farms across the state of Colorado. 

Additionally, the farmers market model protects the environment. In the U.S, food travels an average of 1,500 miles before reaching your plate, expending energy resources. 

And more than anything else, you’ll make community connections and discover a variety of foods that you can’t find at a traditional supermarket! 


We hope that this guide to Denver Farmers Markets was helpful for you! 

As we move into 2021, let’s remember that supporting local business is more important than ever before.
