Heirloom tomatoes, Beatles tribute band highlight Downtown Market
Ryan Summerlin June 17, 2014
Ahhhh! Can you believe it is already time to savor the acid and sweet combinations of our first heirloom tomatoes of the season? Tomato lovers will be excited to see some of the season’s first heirloom tomatoes offered by Z’s Orchard along with their fresh crop of spring lettuces and greens, fresh herbs, spring onions and edible flowers.
Roan Creek Ranch will be there to help complete your menu with local beef, lamb, pork and a variety of sausages. Their beef and lamb have been born and raised on the Roan Creek Ranch and fed only on grass and hay raised on their ranch, never having been fed grain, given antibiotics or growth hormones. If it’s not possible to visit them at the market, visit them at www.roancreekranch.com.
At 6 p.m. in the cooking demonstration tent, Sharill and Jim Hawkins of the Four Mile Creek Bed and Breakfast will be demonstrating how to prepare “Forbidden Fruit: Ice Creams and Liqueurs.” Join them in this journey for new ideas with using our seasonal fruit.
Doctor Robert marks a new generation of tribute bands, bringing a modern sound and feel to the “Fab Four’s” classics in this Beatles tribute band. At 5:30 p.m., help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first visit to the United States. Be sure to thank the Stifel Nicolaus and Co. team for sponsoring this week’s musicians.
The Glenwood Springs Garden Club members will be in attendance featuring their annual plant sale (yes, really this time). The Garden Club will also be selling tickets for their “Welcome to Our Gardens Tour” that will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 12. The tour will include 10 Glenwood Springs area gardens. Take a moment to browse their locally grown plants and select a few and accept my apologies for the erroneous report of their appearance last week.
We’d like to thank our sponsors, the city of Glenwood Springs, Valley View Hospital, and The Hot Springs Pool and Spa for helping make the 2014 Glenwood’s Downtown Market a reality. Come join your friends, neighbors and visitors in the heart of Glenwood Springs at the Glenwood’s Downtown Market. Find the freshest early summer produce while enjoying local art, music and food, from 4-8 p.m. in Centennial Park at Ninth and Grand Avenue.
