About Us

Our Market

Our Logo. Cut off version! LOL

Welcome to the 2019 season! 

Our 4th Season! Growing in many ways! Steady, determined and unwavered we aim to make this outdoor market a destination event for Creede. 

Our secondary goal is to foster trade, creativity and community by bringing individuals out of their shops, homes, sheds onto the downtown area scene for the world to see what they grow, make  or create! 

Why? Well, it's the right thing to do! Simple!

Our Community


Creede is a special place! A little raw, unfiltered and unadulterated! Not like any place else really. Too much to list. Not easily explained. Better to be experienced!

Nestled perfectly in one of the most beautiful places on the planet; the Creede caldera is here in all of its abundance. Unimaginable views are everywhere. Home to several surrounding, wild wilderness areas and one one of the best Repertory Theatre Companies in the USA hosted by a truly special bunch of folk. Have you heard about 96% public lands around us? Yup. 8852 feet above sea level? You heard it right! A little different. Refreshing.

Stop on by and say hello! 

Our Policies


Treat everyone kindly, respectfully until they prove they deserve otherwise!

This is our website and all of the stuff on it is ours. At this juncture we want to keep it that way! We made all of this ourselves. You want to use our stuff? Ask us first! Don't be a putz and just take it! We might say no to your request. Depends on how you ask frankly! 

Confused? Read the first line again!

Interested in becoming a vendor?

It's not hard to become a vendor at The Creede Farmer's and Local Artisan Market. 

  • We have a "vendor application packet" and we'll send one out for you to complete and return. There are some rules and regulations that we have grown to need over the years. Mostly for visiting pets and on-site food preparation. Don't be alarmed. 
  • Booth space is really reasonable priced at $10 per day for an approximately 10ft x 10ft booth space. Feel free to bring your canopy tent or umbrella, table and chairs. Parking is close nearby. Loading and unloading is usually a breeze. Be there early to get set up. Food trucks and food trailers are on a case by case basis and pricing is reasonable as well. Loud generators are discouraged. Lets chat about what you have for your operation.
  • Payment is due before the start of each day or you can buy a season pass for a discount. Inquire using the "Drop us an Email" button on this page. If you hit the "Find out more" button below it will take you there as well. The "Contact Us" button at the top of the website will take you to our Facebook Page. We welcome contact from there as well. 
  • Communication is key. We regularly highlight which vendors will be at the market for the upcoming week. We usually use text/cell as a means to determine if you will be there. This is very important to participate in. Especially if you are a farm or food purveyor. 

We hope you'll join us.
