I can think of at least five reasons to stop by Centennial Park at Ninth and Grand to see what this open air market offers.
Farm fresh produce: Early Morning Orchard was established in 2008 and provides fresh fruits and vegetables through farmers markets in Western Colorado.
Live music: This week, Let Them Roar (formally All the Pretty Horses) will be performing starting at 5:30 p.m. Winner of the 2013 Local’s Choice Band Award, Let Them Roar is considered an American music melting pot. The jazz trained rhythm section and the twangy voice of country, takes inspiration from Bob Dylan to Bach and is sure to lure you in with their combination of unique musical talents and interests. Please stop by and thank everyone at Early Morning Orchard for sponsoring this week’s music.
Cooking demonstrations: Teas will be the topic at this week’s cooking demonstration given to us by the Providence Apothecary. Have you ever wondered about the difference between oolong, herbal, green, black and all the others? What are the best steeping practices for each tea, the manufacturing process, and nutritional value? Bring your questions and try their samples beginning at 5:30. Stop in The Pullman or Town restaurants to thank them for making the cooking demonstrations possible.
Unique artisans: Thutop Yuthok, a native Tibetan, earned his living as a trekking guide and then learned the crafts & jewelry trade. He also served as an active social worker for many years in a refugee camp in Nepal. In 2001, he and his family moved to the United States and began to re-establish his jewelry business. Mr. Thutop’s ambition is not only to expand business, but also to develop a socially motivated environment to help needy people and communities.
Colorado wines and tastings: 5680 Vineyards is a small family-owned vineyard nestled at 5680 feet above sea level in Paonia. This area is the highest recognized growing elevation in the United States and the crisp mountain air, intense sunlight and the pure water of the Colorado high country combine to provide one of the most unique growing conditions in the world. Stop by and find out more about Rob Kimball’s pinot noir and chardonnay wines.
Join your friends, neighbors and visitors at the Glenwood Downtown Market this week to find some of the season’s freshest herbs and vegetables, pick up your fresh baked goods, tap your feet to some great rhythms, and see if you can find a few more reasons not to miss this unique weekly market.
