The Town of Gypsum is a true community partner.

Posted on February 22, 2018

The town of Gypsum supports many organizations. Its support proved invaluable for ERYC's Valley Tastings.

You’ll always find lots to do in the Town of Gypsum for all ages. In 2018 we have a new event to highlight. This event was a direct result of an event that we partnered with ERYC in 2017.

New to our 2018 event calendar will be our Down Valley Farmers Market. In 2017 when our community hosted ERYC’s Valley Tastings Event, the town of Gypsum developed it as a farm-to-table event. Gypsum has always been known as a ranching and farming community, we still have active ranchers today. For this event, we collaborated on bringing in the ranching community and showcased a valuable industry of Eagle County. The town of Gypsum’s role was to help make those connections and to help market and provide in-kind services for the event.

The farm-to-table concept has helped to jump-start a movement to bring healthy food to our community. And now in 2018, the dream of a Farmers Market has now come to life. We will host the market every Friday, June 15th through September 14th in the evenings. On the fourth Friday of each month, in honor of our partnership, we plan to partner with various nonprofits including ERYC, to highlight their contribution to the community as well as provide fun activities for kids, educational opportunities and live music.

In 2018 we plan to partner once again with ERYC and Valley Tastings September 15. We plan to highlight the organization's wonderful work with our youth at the September Fourth Friday events.
