Visit the market this Friday when the artful and creative Paul Guzman, with his band, Lucid Frequency will perform between 4:00 and 6:00 PM at the park at La Jara Town Hall. Paul blends his guitar with his own original and unique electronics to create a memorable time while you shop from vendors who bring the freshest local produce almost to your doorstep.
Several grant programs encourage healthful eating and produce purchases at the La Jara Farmers Market. Each week the Healthy Habits Group continues their colorful and free cooking demonstrations at their mobile kitchen with inspiring recipes and samples made from local produce. This educational program is funded by Colorado State University Cooperative Extension. The Healthy Habits booth welcomes and redeems produce vouchers for 267 WIC families and 134 senior citizens. Vouchers may be redeemed at all produce vendors.

With just two markets remaining after this Friday you’ll enjoy meeting good friends and neighbors who appreciate the fun and fine food the La Jara Farmers Market brings each summer.
