2021 Greeley Farmers’ Market
Greeley’s Farmers’ Market will open the outdoor season at the Depot, 902 7th Ave. on May 15, 2021, from 8 a.m. – noon and will be every week through October 30, 2021. This year we will have more vendors than in 2021. There will still be some safety measures in place. These include face masks highly encouraged and one-directional traffic flow through the market with a different look and feel this summer. Visitors should look for and follow signage indicating the main entrance and exit to create one-way traffic through the market.
We look forward to seeing some returning and new vendors. At the peak of the summer market, we anticipate having as many as 50 vendors. Entertainment will resume and our Master Gardeners will be present to give valuable gardening advice. Remember: MARKET DAY IS SATURDAY!
The new exhibition “War Comes Home: The Legacy” will close today, September 25, 2021 at the Greeley History Museum, 714 8th St.; however, the date could change due to COVID-19.
Combined with local artifacts from the City of Greeley Museums’ collection, “War Comes Home: The Legacy” highlights private correspondence from almost every major conflict in U.S. history. The traveling exhibition, rich with historical and contemporary letters, offers an intimate perspective into the thoughts and emotions of veterans and their families upon a soldier’s homecoming.
“War Comes Home: The Legacy” is a partnership between Cal Humanities, the California State Library and Exhibit Envoy. Visit https://greeleymuseums.com for details.
