Grand Junction's Market on Main is officially underway. In addition to farm-direct produce, live music, and fabulous arts and crafts, here are five reasons why you'll definitely want to attend.

Fresh on the heels of the "whatever that was" year we called 2020, the Market on Main is back, and looks to be better than ever. It's all there, the produce, music, vendors, even the Sunset Terrace. Here are five great reasons to attend.

Good Start To The Season

It appears as though the universe is going to cut us some slack. After a week of blistering 100+ degree temperatures, it seems we'll get to enjoy drastically cooler surroundings, and maybe a little rain.

What a great opportunity to visit downtown. While you're at it, visit the Sunset Terrace on top of the historic Avalon Theatre and enjoy live music, drink specials, and incredible views.

Local, Local, Local

I love the Market On Main because it is, in a word, local. Produce from right here in the valley, combined with confections, arts, crafts, and more.

Music, Music, Music

You'll find great live entertainment at both 4th and Main and at 5th and Main. When the band at 4th and Main goes to intermission, you'll enjoy a special show. There's music and dance all evening.

That's a start. In no particular order, here are five rock-solid reasons why you'll want to catch the final Market on Main for 2019.

  • A large number of new musical acts will appear in 2021
  • It might be a while before we get to enjoy the cooler temperatures like we're experiencing today
  • You'll run into friends and neighbors you haven't seen in a while
  • Spend some quality time downtown and support all of these awesome local vendors
  • There is literally something for everyone. If you didn't make it down in 2020, here's your chance to get back in the groove.

This is an awesome event. Please make the most of it. To be honest, I didn't realize how much I enjoyed the Market on Main until 2020 rolled around. Yes, the market continued in a modified form, but it wasn't quite the same. The Market on Main is back, and I hope you'll make plans to attend each week.
