Now that fall is officially here the farmers market season is coming to an end.
We’ve finished at the Laramie market for the season and we are so grateful to everyone who came out to see us. And we will be at our last Cheyenne market on October 1 (today)! We will continue going to both Fort Collins markets through October! Here are those dates:
Saturdays: Larimer Farmers Market from 8am-12pm in Old Town Fort Collins.
Sundays: CAMC Farmers Market in Fort Collins from 11am-3pm on Harmony and Lemay in front of Ace Hardware.
Markets are hard. We have to get up early and it’s a lot of work. But there’s a reason why we do it, and there’s a reason why Jackie has always loved farmers markets.
First, Jackie started at a farmers market. She sold her first bags of coffee at a farmers market in Fort Collins and got her first wholesale client from a farmers market sale.
Jackie continues to do markets because she (and all of us) love meeting you, the customers! Markets are the best place to hear your feedback and opinions on what we are doing and how we can improve. We want to hear what you like, what you don’t like and any ideas you have.
A few years ago, Jackie had a customer approach her at a market who asked her if she gave tours of the roastery. Jackie told the customer they could come by anytime and take a look around, but the customer wanted a full tour like a brewery tour. So Jackie set up a full 2-hour tour of the roastery for the customer and their family, all because the customer asked about it at a farmers market.
So come say hi at a farmers market! Tell us what you like, what you think we should change, or any ideas you have. Do you think we should make a new flavor? Sell a new product? Change something on our website? Write about something in our blog? Tell us at a farmers market!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our tent at a market this season. We loved getting to meet you and hearing your feedback about Jackie’s Java!
Have anything you want to tell us? Come by the Fort Collins markets through the rest of October! We’ll see you there!
