Annual publication promotes farms, farmers' markets


Colorado growers can market their products to consumers statewide through the Colorado Farm Fresh Directory. Listings are being accepted for the 2009 edition of the directory. Published annually by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, Farm Fresh promotes Colorado farmers' markets, roadside stands, u-picks, CSAs, agritourism activities and farms that sell direct to the public.

"Buying local is a growing trend, and the Farm Fresh Directory provides a way for Colorado growers to direct market their products to consumers," said Wendy White, marketing specialist with the Colorado Department of Agriculture. "Farm Fresh is our most popular publication and consumers look forward to the new edition every year."

The fee to be included in the directory is $25 and the deadline is Feb. 1. Listing forms are available at the Colorado State University Cooperative Extension offices by calling the Colorado Department of Agriculture at 303-239-4115 or by visiting www.coloradoagriculture.com.

The directory will be available in June and is free to consumers. Nearly 90,000 copies of the publication will be distributed through libraries, Extension offices, bookstores, farmers' markets, welcome centers, chambers of commerce and other businesses. In addition to the printed directory, the 2009 Farm Fresh will also be available on the Colorado Department of Agriculture's website.

This is the 25th anniversary edition of the directory. For more information contact Loretta Lopez at 303-239-4115 or visit www.coloradoagriculture.com.
