Where will the Market take place?
Beginning July 9, the Market on Main will take place in the parking lot at the Grand Junction Convention Center located at 1st Street and Colorado Avenue to best accommodate the guidelines from MCPH. As COVID-19 guidelines continue to loosen, Downtown GJ will work with MCPH to determine when we will be allowed to move the Market on Main back to Main Street. We are hoping to have the Market moved back to Main Street by August 6, 2020.

As of June 18, 2020 there are no restrictions from MCPH regarding what types of vendors are allowed to sell products at the Market. Customers can expect to see produce, other agriculture products, artisan items, food and snack vendors, etc. Please review the 2020 Market on Main Rules and Regulations for descriptions of vendors that are accepted into the Market.
