Mountain Village: Market On The Plaza

Nothing says summertime in Colorado like an open air market, especially amid the sun-soaked scenery of Mountain Village Center. So beginning June 18, the paver-laden Heritage Plaza will once again be teeming with white tents and Colorado-proud vendors as the Market on the Plaza returns to Mountain Village.

“Market on the Plaza is about promoting sustainability and supporting our regional economy,” said Community Relations Manager Nichole Zangara Riley.

In its fourth year, the Market runs every Wednesday through August 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and offers patrons some unconventional variety. Of course the usual, and much desired, products will be available: produce, dairy, meats and prepared snacks. But Heritage Plaza also will be dotted with less traditional vendors selling hand-painted glassware, jewelry, textiles, specialty soaps and lotions and hair pieces, among other items. In addition, the town is partnering with Wilkinson Public Library to bring more entertainment and programming to Mountain Village Center.

“The library’s programming helps round out the market and gives patrons a fun dose of the unconventional,” explained Zangara Riley. “The market’s day-time entertainment will begin July 2 and include youth activities like making Oobleck, and for the July 9, July 23, August 6 market dates there will be live music performed by local artists. In addition to the entertainment, the library will have a booth setup where they will sell used books and offer library assistance such as applying for or renewing a library card and learning about other library services.

To become a Market vendor, applications and the $75 fee must be received two weeks prior to the Market date; the town will accept vendor applications all summer long.
