The Arbol Farmers Market Committee & The Learning Council
Arbol Farmers Market in Paonia Town Park is a thriving and abundant market where our community has access to fresh, local, organic produce, prepared meals, and value added food items!
The Arbol Farmers Market debuted in 2020 at Arbol Farm on Lamborn Mesa in Paonia as a way to make more local food available to the community and bolster the prosperity of local farmers during the pandemic. The market was a success and we quickly outgrew the space.
In 2021 we moved to Paonia Town Park under the shade of the trees and we hosted a prosperous community market in the Park! Our market took place weekly May through October in 2021 and 2022. We featured local farmers, ranchers, chefs, artists, herbalists, orchardists, musicians, community nonprofits, and more!
In the fall of 2022 we hosted the market indoors at the Hearth in Paonia for the first season of the highly successful and abundant Arbol Winter Farmers Market. This winter market, which runs monthly until April, helps farmers during a usually slow time of year and brings the community together to eat local food all winter long!
This year we will continue to grow as a market and host our wonderful vendors and market attendees in Paonia Town Park every Tuesday evening from May 16th to October 17th. We also plan to continue the market indoors for a second season of the winter market in 2023/2024.
By supporting this blossoming market, you are helping to connect local food to local people, bring more folks into the area to support our region’s economy, and create a vibrant, public, weekly social event in Paonia Town Park.
