Aspen winter market starts Saturday
December 11, 2009
ASPEN – The Aspen Saturday Market makes it winter debut Dec. 12.
Today and next Saturday, Dec. 19, the market will have 14 food and artisan vendors in the Rio Grande Plaza (above the Rio Grande parking garage) from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Only Colorado-grown and -produced items will be sold at what’s being called the Saturday Market Winterfest.
The town’s summertime market takes place outdoors, on a block of Hopkins Avenue and a block of Hunter Street. But the city’s special events committee was opposed to using the streets during the winter.
