INDOOR FARMERS MARKET

Selling organic or other high-quality foods

from local farmers and food producers

We take Mastercard, Visa, SNAP/EBT (food stamps)

 Do you know where your food comes from?  We know where ours comes from and we know the people who grow it.  One of the goals of our urban agricultural center is to provide that information to our customers and help strengthen the bonds between the farmer and the consumer, to make transparent the route from the farm to the table.  In order to this, it is our goal to visit all the farms selling at our market, to understand their food production processes and to feel confident that the food is grown or prepared with agricultural, nutritional and environmental integrity.  (Note that "local" varies depending on the product.  Most of our foods come from a 100 mile radius, but some come from greater distances because they are not produced nearby.)

FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL ART

Calling for Agricultural Art!

Denver Urban Homestead is exhibiting art with an agricultural theme at the Farmerís Market. We would love to connect with artists that work  (loosely) with agricultural themes.

We believe that real food goes best with real art! So, please email us if you are interested!
