OUR LOCAL PARTNERS
At Megan's Mushrooms, we believe that there is incredible value in eating and buying local. When we participate in a farmer's market we go home with enough healthy, locally sourced food to almost completely avoid the grocery stores and we feel so grateful for that opportunity. Eating and buying local means that a larger portion of your money goes to supporting other local businesses. There are priceless benefits to supporting small, local businesses that help take back our basic and unique commodities from multinational corporations. When our community thrives with unique local trades, it creates a community-minded and unique character that distinguishes our locale as a strong, thriving and self-supportive society.
Supporting a local economy means more locally supported jobs, less environmental impact as your food and goods have less distance to travel, and a healthier community as a whole.
We encourage you to explore your local community! To get started, see some of our local partner's sites, services and goods. Trust us, you won't be disappointed.

With the dedication of ensuring all of their vendors are 100% Colorado local, 100% of the time, they provide a truly unique market experience. While we may grow out of attending numerous markets a week, we will always try to be a frequent vendor with CFAM.
The Colorado Farm and Art Market is an authentic, locally run seasonal farmers market. The farmers and ranchers, artists and food vendors are all local and sell only what they have grown or produced, and they undergo a jury process to ensure the highest quality. You will only find the freshest, seasonally available produce!
