    PERLMUTTER of colorado in the house of representatives Wednesday, January 15, 2014 Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud the Golden Farmers Market for receiving the Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce Civic Award.

    This award is given each year to an organization or individual who contributed greatly to the quality of life in Golden.

    The Golden Farmers Market completed its 12th year in 2013 and is known as a model Farmers Market in the State of Colorado. It is a place where one can purchase fresh produce, vegetables and many other goods, and it is a place to get to know your neighbors. Sales turned in by the vendors totaled $613,000 in 2013 and nearly $4 million throughout its 12 year history. This generated more than $120,000 in city tax revenue.

    I extend my deepest congratulations to the Golden Farmers Market, and all the volunteers which make the Golden Farmers Market so successful, for this well deserved recognition from the Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce.
