The Carbondale Farmers' Market is poised to launch on June 10 as essential business with special guidelines. KDNK's Raleigh Burleigh spoke with market manager Jamie Wall for an update...

As in previous years, the Carbondale Farmers' Market will run from 10am to 3pm on Wednesdays, beginning June 10 and continuing through September 30. Unlike previous years, the market will include new norms for social distancing. These include required face coverings, one entry and one exit with one-way traffic flow, and the cancellation of music.

Confirmed vendors will provide fresh produce, hot food, and artisan goods. The market will once again feature double-up food bucks for SNAP recipients, allowing persons with food stamps to double that value when purchasing from local agricultors.

And for persons wishing to support our local producers but still unsure about the risk of venturing out, Carbondale Farmers' Market is also exploring online ordering and scheduled pick-up at the market.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Now Raleigh is happy to serve on the KDNK Board of Directors. Raleigh is now the Editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper the Sopris Sun.
