After a three year hiatus, the Monticello Farmers Market has come back to this small town. Bayley Hedglin, Executive Director of the San Juan Chamber of Commerce, organized the event which took place in the rear parking area of the Monticello Welcome Center. Featured vendors did not consist of only farmers, but craftspeople and food trucks; fruits, vegetables, canned goods, handmade jewelry, crafts and Green River melons. From the hours of 5pm to 8pm, locals and curious visitors were able to stock up on “Buy Fresh, Buy Local”; and get a free cookbook from San Juan Health.
The Farmers Market will occur twice more before the end of the fall season.
