The Wyoming Business Council is encouraging owners of companies that sell Wyoming-made products to begin planning now for summer retail opportunities. The message is being passed on by the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce.
According to the chamber, the council manages the mercantiles that feature Wyoming-made products at Old Frontier Town during Cheyenne Frontier Days, at the Wyoming State Fair and the State Fair Farmers Market. According to organizers, all three venues see a lot of traffic and are a great way for Wyoming companies to market and sell their products.
Frontier Days in Cheyenne runs from July 18-27, and is limited to 40 companies, and the state fair is Aug. 9-16, and the farmer's market will be held on Aug. 16, from 11-2, both in Douglas. The market is free for vendors.Contact information is listed below.
