“We are very excited to be able to host the Honey Festival again this year. Everyone loves honey and there are so many varieties, it’s great to be able to taste and learn about them all. Additionally, it is such a fun family event that highlights many local beekeepers and supports local small businesses.” said Kerry Helke, Market Manager and Senior Recreation Coordinator for the City of Loveland’s Parks & Recreation Department.
The City of Loveland Farmers Market is a weekly event.
The City of Loveland’s Farmer’s Market at Fairgrounds Park runs every Sunday, June through September and is open from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. This market has grown into one of the top markets in Colorado.
Each week, more than 30 vendors participate with several varieties of produce, microgreens, baked goods, lavender, honey, salsa and more. In addition, there is live music, food trucks and a monthly Artist Market the last Sunday of each month.
The Farmer’s Market accepts EBT Debit cards and offers a match up to $20 in Double Up Food Bucks to purchase fresh Colorado grown produce. Please visit the Market Manager Tent on the north end of the pavilions for more information on this program.
