Main Street Market 

 If you are craving all the great produce from Colorado at this time of year – good news! This summer the Wellington Main Street Program will again sponsor the Main Street Market. This year’s vendor spaces are completely sold out so shoppers will find many options to stock up on fresh produce, baked goods, jewelry, clothing, and more. Palisade Peaches, Rocky Ford Cantaloupe, Sweet Corn from Olathe; and a variety of freshly baked treats all will be available at the Market along with fresh flowers and hand-crafted items for your home and garden.  The Market begins July 28 and runs through September 22 from 4:30 – 7:30 PM every Thursday. Round up the family and spend Thursday evenings in downtown Wellington. Stop by restaurants for a meal or treat from restaurants, coffee shops, and brew pubs and shop the Main Street Market!
