If you can’t go to the farmers market, the farmer’s market will come to you!
Welcome to (NOCOVFM), Northern Colorado Virtual Farmers Market!
Alexa Vasquez, founder/owner & CEO started NOCOVFM on Facebook in March of 2020, to bring community members the opportunity to buy locally grown farmers food, handmade products and professional business services during the COVID-19 Pandemic. NOCOVFM, our vendors, and committed team, continue to provide this valuable service year round to all our members and to communities near and far.
Live, Love, Shop Local
The Store is Permanently Closed.
We would like to thank all our customers who supported the virtual market.
Due to buying changes in our customer’s shopping habits and changes in how vendors conduct their businesses, we found we were no longer able to continue with the virtual marketplace service.
We are proud of the platform we built and that we were able to provide this wonderful marketplace to the community during a very different and difficult time.
Through the process, we supported many local businesses, which allowed them to become noticed and today they are growing and thriving.
We believe that is a good thing!
Should you want to patronize the vendors who were on this platform please visit our Facebook group, where we will be posting updates, news and information about them.
This way you may purchase directly with them as almost all are providing their own delivery and pick-up services.
We thank you for the opportunity to have served our loyal customers and our dedicated vendors.
For All Your Bear Necessities
Locally grown food and artisan products keep communities healthy, and now more than ever, residents want to support artisans, farmers and small businesses. For this reason, we created this site, as well as our Facebook page, NOCO Virtual Farmers Market, as a way to allow communities to buy fresh farm products, artisan handmade goods, and get small business services from vendors, while we in turn, deliver those orders directly to your home. Our vendors range from farmers, to crafters, to artisans, to small businesses and professional services all supplying you with the highest quality in food, the most unique products in the art world and the highest standards of small business services.
