Use the Locally Grown Directory to find fantastic Colorado grown and prepared foods. Each producers listing will tell you where and what time of year their product is available.  In addition to looking in our directory, here are some tips for finding and enjoying the best foods in your area!

  • Does you town have a farmers market? I bet they do, at least seasonally.  You can get the freshest produce this way.  No long voyages for those veggies, just farm to market!
  • Ask you grocer to stock your favorite locally produced items such as jellies, sauces and cereals.  Then spread the word to friends and family to ensure those local products move!
  • Build a relationship.  Build a relationship with a local farmer or rancher.  Getting to know your food and its source.  In today's society we are very removed from our food production.   Lets make a move to change this!


The Produced Directory below is loaded with Colorado businesses that are making, producing or creating items/products that range from everyday goods such as natural beauty products, Colorado shoes and clothing to home building kits and ski equiptment. Some other reasons to think "shop local first" that we came up were:

  • Increase Domestic Production.  Wouldn't we all like to see a little less Made In China, Indonesia, Korea, etc and a little more Made in USA?  
  • Quality through Accountability.  You know Colorado made products are well made because it was your neighbor who made them, and the care, thoughtfulness and time that was invested in each product shows.


Invest in a local art.  Yes, famous art is a good monetary investment.  But local art is a community investment.  Browse Created In Colorado's Handcrafted Directory to find amazing creative works that span from Original Paintings and Handcrafted Furniture to Home Decor and Outdoor Garden Art.

  • Good Craftmanship. Good craftmanship shows. It just does.  Paying more upfront for quality built furniture, home decor, etc will  pay off in the long run
  • One of Kind.  Because handmade greeting cards, stained glass art and handcrafted jewelry are just better when they are not mass produced.
