About the Market
2024 marks the 27th anniversary of the Minturn market, hosted by the Town of Minturn. The original Eagle County market, and the local’s favorite, Minturn Market is a true family-friendly artisan market showcasing a variety of local products – food trucks, fresh produce, baked goods, art & pottery, clothing & jewelry, pet products and much more! You’ll enjoy live music, live glass blowing, whisky and wine tastings, a Kids Zone, and more! The Minturn market regular season takes place Saturdays, June 22nd through September 7th from 9am – 2pm rain or shine, in historic downtown Minturn. The KIDS ZONE will feature a climbing wall, bounce house, mechanical bull, face painting, a build-your-own stuffed animal station, and more.
The Market is dog-friendly, but please keep your furry friends leashed. Thank you!
The Minturn Market would like to thank our generous sponsors, without whom the market would not be possible. The 2023 Minturn Market was brought to you by Steammaster, located in Minturn. Alpine Bank is our Zero Waste sponsor. Additional sponsors include: Bravo! Vail, Mangiare Italian Market, The Bunkhouse, Brand-On, Inter-Mountain Engineering, Select Surfaces, Vail Honeywagon, and Karp.Neu.Hanlon.
Market Parking is available in the Municipal Lot (A-C) public parking, as well as street parking throughout town (see below). The Municipal Parking Lot is located at the end of North Main St., just past the Minturn Saloon and the Eagle River Inn. (If you are driving into Minturn via southbound Hwy 24, you will turn left at Minturn Anglers and go over the bridge. From there, you'll see the parking lot).
Please DO NOT park in any area that is denoted Minturn Mountain Motel (or Turntable) Resident Parking.
Overflow market parking can be found throughout town via on-street parking, as well as by Eagle River Park (basketball court), and at Town Hall (302 Pine St / 301 Boulder St). Additionally, parking may be available at St. Patrick's Church (476 Pine St.) and the overflow lot across the street from the church. However, please keep in mind that parking may be limited or not available if the church has a special / private event that day.
Entering its 27th season and the original outdoor market to the Vail Valley, the Minturn Market’s mission is to encourage, support, and promote the entrepreneurial efforts of local, independent, and small-scale business owners seeking to sell products directly to the consumer. Inherent in this mission is the enhancement and enrichment of the community and culture in Minturn.
The Summer Market is open every Saturday, June 22nd through September 7th, 2024. Located in charming Downtown Minturn, Colorado, the Market features a variety of vendors each week including food trucks, fresh produce, baked goods, local art, clothing and jewelry, pottery and home decor, pet products and much more.
We'd like to extend a hearty "Welcome!" to all of our new and returning Vendors. Every market day visitors come to purchase the best that this region has to offer in farm fresh produce, artisan foods and hand-made goods. The Minturn Market prides itself on offering a wide variety of vendor products, in the midst of our downtown commercial core. Our full-season market booth fees are the least expensive in the Vail Valley, making the Minturn Market the most cost effective market for Vendor participation.
