Colorado Farmers Market Association 2021 Recommendations for Farmers Markets – COVID-19

CFMA’s 2021 Recommendations have been revised with input and collaboration from Market Managers and Local Public Health Agencies around Colorado.  These are not regulations, rather they are recommendations/suggestions to support market managers and Local Public Health Agencies in ensuring that markets are both viable and safe.  Decisions on how to implement these recommendations are to be made at the local level. The recommendations are a living document and will be updated as needed during the season.



Thank you for supporting Colorado farmers markets, farmers, ranchers, and healthy communities across the state!
