Take Your Front Row Seat at the Gerald Ford Amphitheater
The Vail Farmers’ Market & Art Show takes place every Sunday, mid-June to early October, from 10am-3:30pm. It started in 2001 with just a few tents, and has grown to over 135 vendors. Today it is one of the largest in Colorado.
At the Market, you will find everything from farm fresh produce to artisan crafts, specialty foods, clothing, and accessories. When we go, we love getting fresh Colorado Palisade peaches and lunch. With over 40 food vendors, your hardest decision will be deciding which delicious dish to eat. Should you have a fresh made-to-order salad, a lobster roll, sweet or savory crepe, paella, or BBQ? Leslie highly recommends the fish tacos at the Agave tent and is partial to a Batter Cupcake for dessert!
While perusing the tents, you can also enjoy entertainment each week including free Vail Jazz @ the Market performances and smaller duos/trios/quartets. Of course, people watching provides plenty of entertainment, too.
From Lodge at Lionshead, the Market is a quick, easy walk. You can also borrow one of our free cruiser bikes.
Farm-to-Table Dinner Series
Approximately three to four times a summer, the Vail Farmers’ Market hosts this unique dinner series. Local chefs partner with the Taste of Vail to provide Colorado wines and beer for each dinner. Each beverage perfectly complements the chef-crafted meal, which celebrates the best of Colorado cuisine with local ingredients.
You can purchase tickets online at www.vailfarmersmarket.com/farm-to-table. The tented dinners are held rain or shine on East Meadow Drive, so please dress accordingly (warm jacket just in case) and bring your sense of outdoor culinary adventure! The ticket prices includes wine and beer.
