Sundays • May 20th – November 18th • 9am to 1pm

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 sixteenth season – the market has grown to 27 weeks, with over 100 vendors and thousands of shoppers and aficionados. Managed by our friends at HobNob Events for the past eleven 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.

The South Pearl Street Farmers Market is one of several markets in the Denver area managed by HobNob events.

General Information

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.

Q: How do you choose your Farmers Market vendors?

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.

Q: Do you close during inclement weather?

Our market is open rain, snow or shine and all holidays. We will only cancel during EXTREME weather conditions. We ask that you check your email for weather updates.

Q: What is the Denver Tax Rate?

The Denver Tax Rate is 3.65%

Q: Can I come to your market and pass out flyers to promote my new business/non-profit organization/charity event?

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.

Q: I do not sell a product. Can I set up a booth at your market?

Our market focuses on food and food related items. Informational vendors are not accepted into any of the markets. Exceptions may be made (determined on a case by case basis) for members of the merchants association, surrounding businesses, or market sponsors.

Q: I’ve seen booths set up at your market for items that are not on your vendor list or you’ve said you don’t allow in the market. Can you explain?

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!
