Quick dinners and produce for canning at Farmers Market

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado - Summer continues to march its way through the calendar and children are headed back to school. I find that my time to cook seems to shrink, so I fall back to Farmer Dave's lean grass-fed hamburger and steaks to keep our dinners on track.

Pappardelle's frozen ravioli and wide assortment of pastas and orzo allow a quick side dish.

The quality organic fruits and vegetables at Kuhns' Peach Valley CSA include purple carrots, green beans and tasty cucumbers. Fresh cut flowers and garlic cloves can also be located here.

Mesa Forge and Farm brings a wide variety of winter squash fresh from the patch, along with the incredible taste of Green River melons and award winning Plum Daisy jams.

The varieties and flavors of peaches and plums at Forte Farms and Banjo Joe are hard to find anywhere else. Check out the week's new varieties.

The green canopies of DeVries farm cover canned vegetables for those who do not can and quantities and varieties of fresh produce for those who do, including freshly roasted chilies, eggplant and Olathe Sweet sweet corn.

Salmon wraps are the market menu, this week as well as the opportunity to stock up on wild caught frozen salmon and halibut at Kaleb's Katch.

The produce that is offered to our customers each week is just a part of our dedication to continuing sustainable food production.

The Glenwood Springs Farmers Market is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday in the Rite-Aid parking lot, 1400 block of Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs, through Oct. 27.
