The 2021 Cheyenne Farmer's Market will get underway on Saturday, August 14 from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Once again this year it will be held in the B lot parking area at Frontier Park in Cheyenne. Cheyenne Frontier Days has donated the space for the market.

It was first held at Frontier Park in 2020, after being moved from downtown Cheyenne because of concerns about social distancing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The market, which is a fundraiser for Community Action of Laramie County, is an annual event that typically offers fruits and vegetables, honey, pastries, baked goods, meat products, gourmet coffee, and a host of other products to shoppers.

SNAP, EBT, and debit/credit cards are accepted at the Farmer's Market, which will continue through October 9. Community Action of Laramie County is involved in a number of community programs, according to a news release:

''The Crossroads Healthcare Clinic, providing health care to our homeless and low-income neighbors and is the only federally qualified health care center in the state administering the COVID-19 vaccine. Community Action also administers the only intensive case management program in the state dedicated to putting our homeless and low-income neighbors on the path to self-sufficiency. The Kinship Support Services program provides support, respite, and assistance to families of grandparents raising their grandchildren. Finally, the Jonn J. Edmunds Veterans Home and the VA Bridge Housing program provide transitional housing and case management to homeless veterans in Cheyenne and Laramie County. This is the only program in Wyoming to have designated housing for female and LGBTQ veterans. The funds raised at the Cheyenne Farmers Market go right back into helping Community Action serve our most vulnerable neighbors through these programs.''

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
