This year’s directory lists more than 200 farms, roadside stands, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, u-picks, restaurants, and features more than 100 farmers’ markets across Colorado. Inside you will find information about county fairs, agricultural festivals, and extension offices as well as a crop calendar. The directory also features agritourism information on attractions such as corn mazes, wineries, and farm/ranch vacations. Our goal is to encourage residents and visitors to experience Colorado agriculture. We hope you find this directory helpful and use it throughout the year.

Texas is one of the largest producers of fresh fruits and vegetables, so your choices are always endless. More than 60 commercial fruit and vegetable crops are grown in the Lone Star State — from apples to zucchini and everything in between. Experience fresh fruits and vegetables in the produce aisle of your neighborhood grocery store, farmers market, community supported agriculture farm (CSA) or pick-your-own farm. You’ll be amazed at the freshness and satisfaction of meals you prepare with produce fresh from a Texas farm near you. This handy guide will let you know when Texas produce is available. Look for the GO TEXAN mark to ensure you are getting locally grown Texas produce. For an online version of this chart and more information on Texas farmers markets, visit gotexan.org.
The Bilingual Market Toolkit was developed with the support of a USDA Farmers’ Market Promotion Program grant, GROW Windham and the Willimantic Farmers’ Market.
The toolkit provides examples of our materials that promote the farmers’ market in both English and Spanish.
The Washington State Farmers Market Management Toolkit provides timely information, tips, and templates to help market managers navigate the increasing demands they face. We hope to cut your learning curve, share best practices, and adapt the excellent existing resources to your market.
Each chapter includes downloadable tools in Word or Excel that you can tailor to your market needs. The Toolkit is designed to be added to and updated in real time. Please send us your recommendations and suggested improvements. The Toolkit is available both online and as a binder from the WSFMA thanks to support from the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program.
This Toolkit is dedicated to Washington State’s indefatigable farmers market staff, boards, volunteers, sponsors, and farmers and other vendors who are working hard to support local farms, grow good food for families, and make our communities brighter.

To help promote farmers markets across the state, the Washington State University Farmers Market Action Team and Washington State Farmers Market Association (WSFMA) have teamed up to create a series of new farmers market graphics.

Feel free to use these beautiful materials however you like—post them online or add to your print promotions, newsletters, event materials, and more. Unleash your creativity!
The graphics are available in print quality PDFs and JPGs and are available in English and Spanish.
