The South Pearl Street Farmers Market will open on Sunday, May 17th! We are so excited to see our loyal patrons and friends.
As we mentioned previously the Colorado Department of Agriculture has declared Farmers Markets critical business and we believe that the less hands touching food the safer it is. We also believe local food supports the local economy, supports our neighbors and nourishes our soul as much as our stomach.
Please check back before attending opening day as the market will look different than the market we know and love and we want to ensure you’re prepared with the all the pertinent details.
In the meantime market boxes will be available and we’ll continue planning for a market of over 100 vendors featuring food, agricultural products, culinary vendors and flowers.
Some things we are doing:
We are closely following guidelines from CDC, Colorado Farmers Market Association, the CSU extension and our local health department to ensure we are operating in a safe environment for our vendors, our patrons and our team.
Here are some things we will be doing to provide a safe environment for all:
We will be asking vendors to do the following:
What you can do as market goers:
The Good News: COVID-19 is not a foodborne illness. It is extremely unlikely that someone will catch it through eating. The virus is most likely to cause illness through respiratory transmission, not eating. The routes to be concerned about include being in very close proximity to many people or coming in contact with high touch surfaces.

On a picture perfect Sunday morning in September, 2001, the first South Pearl Street Farmers Market was launched. Wanting to create an event that would bring neighbors to the street regularly, the first market was a single day event with just ten vendors.
The day was a rousing success, and today– in its 18th season – the market has grown to 27 weeks, with over 120 vendors and thousands of shoppers and aficionados. Managed by our friends at HobNob Events for the past thirteen years, the market has seen many vendors and has been an incubator for vendor successes. We would like to specially acknowledge Ela Family Farms, known far and wide for their mouth-watering peaches and apples from the Western Slope, and Styria Bakery, legendary for their fresh baked bread, both of whom have been with us since that very first day in 2001.
In light of the current environment, we are adapting to a new normal. We want to support our vendors and our passionate market goers, so we are launching a Farmers Market Box! This is the perfect way to stay safe and eat and support local.
We will continue to add to the menu at rubysmarketdenver.com so please check back often for new vendors and updated offerings (especially produce).

HobNob Events manages the South Pearl Street Farmers Market. They strive to support and enhance the surrounding community by providing a Farmers Market experience where a great variety of fresh and wholesome products can be found. It is important to support our local community, therefore, all products must be grown, raised, produced or gathered by the vendor in the State of Colorado or in counties bordering the State of Colorado. In the case that a product is unavailable in the state of Colorado but we feel it would be a benefit to the market and the vendors we will evaluate the relationship between the vendor and the producer and make the best decision we can noting that sometimes there are exceptions to the rule.
A:1400 + 1500 blocks of South Pearl Street (between Iowa and Arkansas)
Sundays, May 17, 2020 – November 15, 2020
The selection process takes into consideration many factors including product quality, sourcing, growing practices, presentation, seniority, safety, compliance, grandfathered vendors, customer service and the right product mix to ensure a successful market for everyone.
Our market is open rain, snow or shine and all holidays. We will only cancel during EXTREME weather conditions. We ask that you check our Facebook Page and/or your email for weather updates.
The Denver Tax Rate is 3.65%
We wish to provide market customers with a relaxing and enjoyable experience where they can stroll through the market and interact with the market vendors. NO solicitors or distribution/marketing of non-approved products are allowed at our markets. This includes signature gathering for petitions and voter sign-up.
Our market focuses on food and food related items. Informational vendors are not accepted into any of the markets.
In order to support the community, the merchants on the street and the Merchant/Neighborhood Associations, we allow brick and mortar stores on the market streets to set up booths and sell their goods at the market. Therefore, you may see a few items that are not on our list. We also have a handful of wonderful “grandfathered” vendors that have been at the Market longer than HobNob has been managing it!
