COVID-safe shopping and Thanksgiving Charity

Since March, the Homestead Market has been keeping our customers, volunteers and staff safe and healthy by requiring proper mask wearing, providing sanitizer and gloves for all patrons, keeping the doors and windows open as much as possible, sanitizing frequently touched surfaces, and limiting occupancy to five at a time. 

We stock the staples for our community! Shop local first!

With the recent uptick in cases, we need your help to keep us all healthy and safe! Did you know we have a volunteer powered delivery service? We also offer curbside pick-upCall 303.582.3001 or email to take advantage of our services, support your favorite nonprofit, and minimize exposure all in one go. 😉 

Thanksgiving Charity

Thank you to those of you who noticed the Tipi Raisers Food Drive bin in the Market! It’s already 75% full, and we’re hoping to send it overflowing to the deeply impoverished Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota before Thanksgiving. Gilpin High School Junior Esmee Halstead visits the Pine Ridge Reservation regularly, and is a passionate volunteer with the Gen7 Youth Leadership CouncilWe are looking for donations of shelf stable foods that do not require cooking, cleaning supplies, and personal hygiene items by Sunday, November 22.
