Founded in 2001, the Golden Farmers Market was designed by the Chamber as a means of bringing people to downtown Golden. The Market was originally held off Washington Avenue where the parking structure now resides. In 2006 the Chamber moved their Market to the parking lot next to the Golden Library where it has been presented for the past 11 years. The Golden Farmers Market is an assembly of vendors in an outdoor public market style, offering produce, food products, prepared cuisine, beverages, vendors, promotional opportunities, entertainment, and other related events as a means of supporting our members, community, city, and a healthy life style.
In 2017 with the support of Centura Health, Jeff co SNAP Program, Live Well Colorado, and Colorado Fresh Markets, our Golden Farmers Market became SNAP Certifi ed. Many Coloradans rely on food assistance programs like SNAP, Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (formerly known as food stamps), which serves more than 485,000 Coloradans a month. However, most SNAP recipients receive $1.41 per meal or $4.23 per day in benefi ts, making it a challenge to have enough money to buy food for the whole month.
To address this issue, and to help build food security in Golden, the Golden Farmers Market accepts SNAP benefi ts and Double Up Food Bucks. Double Up Food Bucks allows SNAP shoppers to bring home more fresh fruits and vegetables. When customers spend a $1 on any SNAP eligible item (meat, bread, eggs, milk, etc.), they receive $1 for Colorado grown, fresh fruits and vegetables. It is a $1:$1 match so if you spend $5, you get $5. If you spend $10, you get $10, up to $20 every week at our market.
Community “Show Case” Booths
The Chamber provides two free booth spaces, each Saturday, for downtown Golden merchants and non-profit entities to “Show Case” their business. These “Show Case” booths are in direct support of the Chamber’s Mission, “…supporting our chamber members, collaborating with businesses, city, county, state and community resources…”.
