Celebrate National Farmer’s Day on October 12

National Farmer’s Day is coming up on Thursday, October 12. It is a day to pay tribute to all the farmers throughout American history — which is a lot of farmers—as farming is one of the oldest jobs around!

 

The profession of farming began around 12,000 years ago with the domestication of livestock  as hunter/gatherers settled down to plan their own food. Out of agriculture, cities and civilizations grew, and because crops and animals could be farmed to meet demand, the global...

Herbs That Thrive Inside During Winter

Fall is nearly here and that means the vendors at the Fort Collins-Loveland Farmers market are busy harvesting the “fruits of their labor” from the spring and summer. That is why now is such a great time to visit the markets. However, it also means that winter is just around the corner and you won’t be able to visit us for fresh produce until next season.

Proud To Be a Double Up Food Bucks Colorado Participant

The Fort Collins-Loveland Farmers Market sponsored by CAMC recognizes that food insecurity is a significant issue in Colorado, with 11% of the population living in poverty. Many of these Coloradans rely on food assistance programs like SNAP (formerly food stamps), which serves more than 485,000 CO residents a month! However, because most SNAP recipients receive $1.41 per meal ($4.23/day), it can be challenging to have enough money to buy food for the whole month. That is why we are proud to ...

What The Heck Is a Patty Pan?

Perhaps you’ve seen these yellow, saucer-shaped veggies at the past few markets and wondered what they are. Well, Farmers Market Patron, please meet the patty pan squash!

Patty pans, sometimes called scallop squash, are a warm-season squash but are less moist than other summer squashes like zucchini. Patty pans grow more firm as they ripen, so they are best harvested and eaten when they’re young and tender.

 

Patty pan squash can be treated like any other summer squash— c...
