Care and Share Food Bank will host the first of two free Black Forest fire farmers markets on Saturday, July 20, at the Pikes Peak Community College.

The market offers fresh produce, meat, dairy and non-perishable family food boxes exclusively to first responders or residents who were evacuated, lost their homes or who were unemployed for some period during the Black Forest fire.

Residents are asked to bring proof of residence or employment; first responders should bring proof of employment. The market will open at 10 a.m. and will close at 2 p.m. It will be at the Rampart Range Campus, 11195 Highway 83. The second market will be held in the same location on July 27.
