Youth Farmers’ Market

The Denver Youth Farmers’ Market Coalition, a joint project between Slow Food Denver and Denver Urban Gardens, supports metro area schools in hosting their own youth farmers’ market. Schools receive market training and supplies. The coalition also provides distribution for supplementary produce from local Colorado farms to each farmers’ market. For more information about the coalition, read the YFM Manual and contact mikhaela@dug.org to get started.
