Stock up on potatoes, squash for winter

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado - The feel of fall is in the air, and with winter fast approaching, now is the time to stock up on bulk bags of potatoes, onions, dried beans and winter squash.

The farmers at our market want shoppers to know that they are still bringing their finest crops, including several varieties of apples, pears and tomatoes.

The conversations with friends and growers, the music and selection of pastas, honey, award-winning jam, pumpkins, gourds and apple cider continue to add to the pleasure.

Sockeye, coho and king salmon can be combined with halibut to complete a special case of frozen portions for winter storage.

The days are getting chillier and a good way to ward off the cold is a lunch of Don's fantastic chili or pulled pork sandwiches.

Holiday gatherings are in the near future, and now is a great time to begin to select the color, texture and flavor of your gathering.

The Glenwood Springs Farmer's 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.
