We know you don't need a reason to visit the Downtown Farmer's Market in Grand Junction, but this week (Aug. 21) they're introducing a beer garden.

This week the Downtown Farmers’ Market is introducing the new Elks Club Beer Garden.

The beer garden will be located at the intersection of 5th and Main, and will feature beer from Palisade Brewing Company as well as other national brands.

The Downtown Farmer's Market is adding the beer garden in response to suggestions made by the public.

Patrons 21 and over can sit back, relax, jam out to some great live music and watch all the great people of Grand Junction while enjoying an ice-cold beer.

Head downtown, pick up some great local produce and enjoy a cold brew every Thursday night through the end of the Market season on September 25.

All proceeds from the beer garden will benefit the Elks Lodge #575.
