Summertime is officially here! It’s time to unwind, refresh, and have adventures in beautiful Northern Colorado! At the Fort Collins Marketplace, we have products from local Fort Collins businesses that are exactly what you need this summer.


Unwind & Refresh

Begin your relaxing, summer morning with a warm cup of Ku Cha House of Tea’s Rocky Mountain Breakfast Blend. Ku Cha House of Tea has been a Colorado staple for 15 years. Their Rocky Mountain Breakfast Blend is a premium blend of Assam black tea from Northern India and Keemun black tea from the mountains of Anhui province in China with a smooth, strong, malty taste and a piney and subtle aftertaste. 


As you prep for your NoCo adventures, pack some local Kombucha, because what is summertime without your favorite cold beverages to keep you chill? One of our favorite ways to relax is by enjoying some delicious beverages offered by two local Fort Collins businesses, Life’s a Buch Kombucha and CopperMuse Distillery

Life’s a Buch Kombucha has awesome, locally made kombucha with organic ingredients that will put an extra pep in your summer-time step. Cool down with their light and crisp summer flavor, Cucumber Basil. If you’re more into fruity flavors, perk up with their Berry Lemonade blend, which is an easy drinker that’s a special twist on a childhood favorite. Prefer something else? Their refreshing Pineapple Mint will hit the spot! If you can’t choose between one of these delicious kombuchas, mix and match your own pack to try ‘em all.

Perhaps you crave something stronger. CopperMuse Distillery is also getting into the summer spirits! Try a unique twist, with a bottle of hibiscus-infused gin or one of their seven vodka infusions. The tastes range from sweet, to crisp, to savory. Choose between jalapeno, bacon, cucumber, horseradish, honey and dill, lavender, and strawberry.


Represent your FoCo Pride Wherever you Go

Whether you’re traveling near or far, take your FoCo Pride with you on your adventure! Both Around FoCo and Under the Fig Tree have great options for gear from local Fort Collins businesses.

Wear an Around FoCo Horsetooth Home hat, shirt, tank, or long-sleeve. They also offer a Horsetooth Home sticker, great for dressing up your water bottle.

Under the Fig Tree also has both a hat and a shirt representing Fort Collins in just three words: mountains, bikes, and beer. If you believe that “Life is Better in FoCo” (who wouldn’t?), check out their hat, tank, and shirt options showing your pride for Fort Collins!


When you’re packing, remember to take your go bag from Cedar & Sage Mercantile with you! With a bottle of hand sanitizer spray, lip balm, surf and snow balm, and a lotion bar all within a netted bag, you’ll have all your easy-to-forget essentials with you on your adventure.

And how about a little (temporary) ink to spice up your adventures? Emma Manino has temporary tattoos that are a great way to show off a local Fort Collins artist. There are mountain ranges and floral temporary tattoo options like carnations and daisies
