Dear Customers, Support Group, Vendors, Musicians and Volunteers -


The Cortez Farmerís Market management team wants to take a moment to thank the many contributors that make our Market, well, some have said ďitís the best farmerís market theyíve ever been toĒ!! This was our 45th year! And some of our Amazing Vendors are of the original group!!


We want to thank all of you dedicated and gifted vendors for working so hard all week to bring us your delicious local grown fruits and vegetables, local grown pasture fed meats, amazing and one-of-a-kind works of art, scrumptious prepared food and drinks and our much needed massage therapist!


Our customers deserve a tremendous thanks! Many of them show up every week eager to see whatís available from our 38 vendors! We wouldnít be there without your continued support to shop local, practice good community and visit with us each Saturday morning throughout the season!


A grand thanks for all the fabulous musical performers we had gift our Market with danceable sounds to shop to each Saturday! Plus thanks to our storyteller Laura McHenry, of Cortez Public Library, for captivating the young ones!
