If you aren't coming to the Market On Main that happens every Thursday, you're missing out on one of the best summer traditions in Grand Junction.

Farmers markets are always popular during the summer months and we are blessed to have some outstanding ones to choose from between Grand Junction, Fruita, and Palisade. Of course, getting fresh fruits and vegetables is a huge draw, but there's a lot more to it.

What Is Special About Grand Junction's Market On Main

I always say this but, Grand Junction is blessed to have a beautiful downtown area. The developments and improvements in recent years have really made downtown an attractive and comfortable place to be. So, for starters, just being in downtown Grand Junction is never a bad thing.

Grand Junction's Market on Main extends from 7th Street all the way down to 3rd, which means there is a lot going on. You find plenty of fresh produce along with a variety of vendors, artisans, food trucks, and musicians. If you haven't been going down there this summer you have been missing out.
