How It Works

Shopping Made Simple

Yampa Valley Foods, formerly CAA Market, is proud to carry products predominantly sourced from the Yampa Valley and surrounding regional areas. We have a year round selection of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, eggs, honey, cheese, seasonal vegetables and additional offerings.

Community Ag Alliance is committed to economic impact for these producers, therefore 100% of proceeds from all sales at Yampa Valley Foods goes back to these businesses.
