All About the Aspen Farmers’ Market
Since 1998, locals and visitors have looked forward to the weekly farmers’ market during Aspen’s summer season. Learn more about what makes this tradition so special!
From mid-June to early October, the farmers’ market is open on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event, also known as the Aspen Saturday Market, is the perfect place to enjoy a casual breakfast, lunch, or snack.
The market starts at the corner of Galena Street and Hopkins Avenue and stretches down to Hunter Street. It’s within walking distance of many local attractions, such as Aspen Brewing Company and the Gucci storefront.
When you visit the Aspen Saturday Market, you can expect to get your hands on lots of high-quality goods. Look forward to perusing Colorado-grown produce and Colorado-produced artisan products, including fruit, vegetables, bread, meat, jam, and more. There’s even a food court where you can sit down and enjoy some of the food you purchased.

A Guest Testimonial:
“One of the pleasures of summer in Aspen is the farmers’ market. I still dream about those only-grown-in-Colorado specialty tomatoes. Local vendors show up in force in early June and line the streets for this event. Being a city girl, I didn’t realize Colorado had so many farms. I learned lots talking with the local farmers and ranchers. Do not leave without purchasing some of the Colorado Mountain honey. It is the tastiest treat! Something about the mountain clover that gives it its distinct taste. I also love the artisanal kombucha.”
