To help increase access to healthy food, the Healthy Farmer’s Market will return to Anythink this summer. Hosted in conjunction with the City of Thornton Community Connections, Tri-County Health Department, the American Heart Association and Lulu’s Farm, these weekly outdoor markets provide opportunities for all community members to purchase fresh produce from local farmers and cottage food vendors.
The markets will operate every Tuesday from July 28 to September 29 at Anythink Huron Street and every Thursday starting July 30 through October 1 at Anythink Wright Farms.
Operating hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at both locations. These markets are an opportunity for all community members to gather for and shop the wide variety of farm-fresh produce available.
For the third year in a row, the Healthy Farmer’s Markets will provide assistance services like SNAP and WIC coupons, as well as RTD vouchers.
These coupons are available at all markets while supplies last, and can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables and other available food items. For more information on these benefits, please call the City of Thornton Community Connections at 720-977-5800.
Extra precautions will be in place for this year’s farmer’s markets. This includes directional signage, social distancing, and limited handling of produce and materials.
This series of markets creates an opportunity to make healthy, fresh produce options accessible and affordable to all in the community.
