By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) -- It may feel like the harvest season has just begun, but some of the valley's Farmer's Markets is coming to a close.

Farmers are walking away from summer with a smile, no hard spring freezes meant a bumper crop this year.

The Fruita Farmer’s Market coordinator said their vendors are seeing 30 to 60 percent more profits.

The Farm and Ranch Market coordinators in Grand Junction said more than a 1,000 visitors have come to the new Cross Orchards location each weekend.

"For us, it’s been one of the best crops we've had in 20 years. we had a full cherry crop, nectarines, peaches,” said Amanda Talley, co-owner of Mosher-Talley Orchard. "Everything has just been phenomenal, so we are very pleased, so we can pass that along to our consumers. We passed along the cheaper prices because we have such abundance of fruit."
