"It is the mission of the Durango Farmers Market to strengthen community ties to agriculture: by providing a venue for regional agricultural producers to sell their products; by preserving open space; by promoting healthy farming practices; and by providing educational benefits through hands-on experience. The Durango Farmers Market seeks to improve the quality of life for all community members." adopted June 9, 1997
The Durango Farmers Market is proud to make daily contributions to the well being of our customers, vendors, and community. We believe that by featuring locally produced foods and goods, we provide a healthier more enjoyable quality of life in the Durango area region.
We are very proud to participate in the SNAP program, providing equal access to quality local food. For those with an EBT card, just stop by the DFM Info Booth to receive your SNAP coupons good for any grocery items.
We are also proud to participate in the Double Up Food Bucks Program, essentially doubling the spending power of anyone using their EBT card at the market. Double Up Food Bucks are free to the customer, care of a collaboritive program administered by Live Well Colorado. Double Up Bucks are good for fruits and vegetables only and can be spent at the Durango, Pagosa, and Cortez Farmers Markets, as well as any other participating market or farm in Colorado.
Also, we offer our own currency, Market Bucks, good at any vendor. For those who forgot to bring cash to the market, this is a simple way to use your debit card or a check to receive equal value in Bucks. These can also make great gifts, complete with a complimentary greeting card and envelope! Just stop by the Info Booth for a quick transaction (with no ATM fee!).
