New Windsor Farmers Market Opens Today

Vegetables, dairy products, baked goods, coffee and organic beef just to name a few of the items that will be available at the new farmers market that opens today (June 30th) in Windsor. Merchants and shoppers alike are invited to attend the market that will continue to open on Saturdays from 10am-1pm through Sept. 22nd.

The market will be setup in downtown Windsor, at 5th and Main streets. Carrie Knight, Windsor’s Art & Heritage manager mentioned that Windsor, in the past, had attempted farmers markets at a local recreations center and in parks with some success — said the city wanted to restart a farmers market where it would be more visible to the community, and where local businesses would get more traffic.

Beginning July 7, Knight added, there will be live music some Saturdays.

The other big news for sellers especially is the Windsor Farmers Market will not require its vendors to carry a minimum of $600,000 in general liability and product liability insurance, which the Greeley Farmers Market started doing this year. That action was a “risk-management move” — made by Greeley Farmers Market organizers less than a year after cantaloupe grown in southeastern Colorado was discovered to be the source of a listeria outbreak that killed dozens of people in several states.  Greeley’s move leaves some concerned that the cost of the insurance will price out small-scale gardeners and others who don’t sell enough to warrant paying the premium for such insurance.
