June is that month that we become overwhelmed with gratitude for the thriving agriculture and local food scene we have here in Montrose. 

Every time we visit the local farmers' markets or stroll through the lush fields, we are reminded of how lucky we are. Our dedicated farmers, with their unwavering commitment and hard work, bring forth a cornucopia of fresh, wholesome produce that fills our plates with vibrant colors and flavors. The richness of our soil and the changing seasons work harmoniously to provide us with an abundance of nourishing options.

But it doesn't stop there. Our local food scene is a testament to the culinary creativity and passion that exists within our community. From farm-to-table restaurants to artisanal food producers, we have a delightful tapestry of flavors and cultural influences right at our doorstep.

Each bite tells a story, connecting us to the land and to the hands that have nurtured it.

From the headwaters of the Uncompahgre River to the North Fork Valley to the valley floor of Grand Junction, this thriving agriculture and local food scene not only nourishes our bodies but also strengthens the bonds within our communities. It brings us together, fosters conversations, and creates unforgettable shared experiences. We are privileged to call Montrose home, where nature's gifts and the dedication of our farmers combine to create something truly remarkable.

So when you arrive in Montrose on your dream vacation, I encourage you to join us in exploring and supporting our local farmers and the remarkable local food establishments that make Southwestern Colorado so special.

With that in mind, we updated the 2023 farmers market list with current times and locations for all the markets in the region.   

We are so lucky to have, within a short drive from Montrose, a farmers market almost every day of the week.
