Market at the Mural opens for the summer

The Clinton County Farmers Market at the Mural officially opened for the summer season on Saturday, despite a looming thunderstorm that poured on market shoppers later in the afternoon. Local farmers and vendors sold produce, herbs, baked goods, pastured meats and other products in the parking lot adjacent to the General Denver hotel.

Ten of the fifteen market vendors sold at the opening day and a steady stream of customers funneled in to shop and sample some of the local products. A local Boy Scout troop volunteered by pulling wagons for elderly and disabled shoppers who needed help getting their groceries to their cars. The General Denver offered its fabled Farmers Market breakfast for just five dollars, and GD head chef Jen Purkey stopped by to get her weekly supply of market fare.

The market is now open every Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Stop by and support your local farmers!
