The Golden Farmers’ Market is a non-profit organization which was started by Lee Bedford (Canyon Creek Pottery) and Patty Nickisch (Patty’s Greenhouse) in 2007. The Market has become a regular summer fixture for both locals and tourists. The Saturday Spirit Square Market was added to the schedule in June 2012 and, although smaller in scale than the Wednesday market, it became a popular Saturday stop for locals and tourists.
There are also winter markets during the off season. The December Christmas market is a very busy and successful market. Additional monthly markets run from the months of February through April, with only a short hiatus before the start of the summer markets in June.
