News & Events


The Castle Rock Farmers Market
Will run on Saturday Mornings from July 11th
through Oct 3rd
from 8:00 am to 12:00 (noon)
The Castle Rock Farmers Market is located in the parking lot on the corner of 3rd and Elbert St.
The Castle Rock FarmersMarket provides Douglas County residents with a local market where they can purchase fresh fruits, vegetables and other horticultural products. The Castle Rock Farmers Market is unique in that it was started by a Master Gardener as a community service project and the board continues to embrace that idealogy by requiring that 80% of vendor produce be Colorado grown and specialty vendors should be connected to the Horticulture/Agriculture Industry.
