More fresh fruits and veggies at Downtown Market
Ryan Summerlin July 15, 2014
The garden season is cranking up, and with the rising temperatures we should see more and different types of freshly picked fruits and vegetables. Stop by Glenwood ‘s Downtown Market between 4 and 8 p.m. Tuesday to see what is new this week.
This season’s peaches have started to come in, and there may be one or two weeks left of those seductive, shiny skinned cherries. We should be able to find heirloom tomatoes and potatoes along with some of the season’s first garlic. Look for Z’s Orchard’s raw honey and their delicious spring onions.
This week’s performer, singer/songwriter Caleb Dean, was raised in Glenwood Springs listening to his granddad playing banjo along with his uncles and cousins. He spent years playing from Colorado to Nashville and has played with The Eagle River Band, opening shows for Michael Martin Murphy. Caleb Dean brings every song to life the way only a true country troubadour can.
Stop by and visit the people at the Roundup River Ranch tent and see how this camp helps kids feel incredible no matter what illness they are battling. Round Up River Ranch is a medically supported camp for kids with chronic and life-threatening illnesses, totally funded through donations.
Cathryn Durrett, through her Divine Thyme Catering company, is bringing her holistic approach to life and food to the market. Growing up locally in a family rich in food traditions has helped to develop her holistic approach to creating some unique recipes. Cate finds it important to use local and organic ingredients whenever possible. Come try some of her unique salads, beet humus and cold summer spring vegetable rolls prepared with enthusiasm and love.
Our weekly cooking demonstration begins at 5:30 p.m. and is sponsored by The Pullman and Town restaurants each week.

We still double the value of SNAP benefits up to $20. This is made possible by Slow Food Roaring Fork. We honor Farmacy and WIC vouchers as well. The city of Glenwood Springs, Valley View Hospital, and the Hot Springs Pool and Spa are sponsoring the market this year. Thanks for helping to make this possible.
