What started as a sociology project has grown into a staple of the Durango community. Early Saturday mornings, locals turn out en masse for homegrown produce, foods and art from throughout the region. Farmers’ Market founder
Carol Clark says that the drought has slowed down local farming, but that business
at the market is booming. The Durango Farmers’ Market runs from 8 a.m. to 12
noon every Saturday through October. Remember to show up early before the good stuff sells out.
