Guide to the Littleton Farmers Market

Each year, Colorado’s farmers markets bring fresh produce and handcrafted goods to our Front Range cities. Littleton residents love stocking up on locally grown fruits and veggies while supporting area agriculture. The Littleton Farmers’ Market by Aspen Grove is back with even more vendors, activities, and eats. Here’s what you should know about this Saturday shopping extravaganza.

When & Where

From June 16 to September 29, 2021, the Littleton Farmers Market takes over the parking lot of Aspen Grove – downtown Littleton’s open air retail center. Aspen Grove’s cozy alleyways, charming shops, and meandering pedestrian pathways make this town square a great place to spend the day. Each Wednesday throughout the summer, pick up produce from 10 am to 2 pm.

Meet the Vendors

The Littleton Farmers Market is one offshoot of the greater Metro Denver Farmers Market, which is the oldest in the area. This local Colorado group has brought fresh farm goods to hungry patrons for the past 40 years and now runs five locations during its summer season. Visitors to the Littleton Farmers Market will find a number of vendors selling everything from fresh-made sausages to earrings and everything in between.

Looking for fresh, Colorado-grown produce? Look no further than Forte Farms or Ant D’s Fine Foods. These two vendors stock their booths with in-season, ripe produce that reflects the diverse nature of Colorado’s growing season. Look for fresh greens, arugula, and radishes early in the summer, then snag squash, tomatoes, and melons later on.

For those interested in supporting Colorado’s ranching and livestock community, buying meat directly from the source is the best way to do it. Additionally, you’ll be minimizing packaging waste, shipping costs, and eating healthy, consciously-raised meat. Rockin’ 4D Meats is a fifth generation ranching operation that puts its cows’ needs before anything else.

Auma Gosh Recipes

The Metro Denver Farmers Market stands apart from other markets in so many ways, but there’s one person who patrons can’t wait to see each year. Auma Gosh has worked at the market for over 30 years. She has become the go-to lady for what’s in season. Gosh has a book of recipes that utilize Colorado’s seasonal produce in appetizers, lunches, dinners, and desserts.
