Enjoy dinner at Glenwood Springs’ Downtown Market
Special to the Post Independent
Join family and friends for dinner at Tuesday’s Downtown Market. This market season we have five hot food vendors offering generous and delicious plates of food. Grab a drink and a place at the picnic tables or in the chairs and listen to music or watch the cooking demo. Enjoy.
Chef Chris Camp and Taco Chef Calder Morrison started Dam Good Tacos in the Phillips 66 gas station in Basalt one year ago. Their mission is to explore a variety of flavors and ingredients in a taco form. Chris says, “I ride a unicorn to work every day, and every taco we serve contains a dash of rainbow.”
Rachel Brown and Tim Burr from Sunlight Mountain Resort encourage you to try Rachel’s sesame chicken kabobs with peanut sauce or their Colorado Angus cheeseburger, hot and “melty” right off the grill. Rachel and Tim also invite you to visit the Sunlight Ski and Bike Shop, while you are at the market.
Jim Souza is at the market again this season with his wonderful crepes. Jim serves savory and sweet crepes. He uses fresh market fruits and this week hopes to have fresh peach crepes as well as his rhubarb strawberry crepes. Nutella with the fruit crepes is decadent but delicious.
Greek Gyros serves Greek salads, falafels, enormous gyros and baklava. Andy Grogger rounds out the food choices with nitrate-free, GMS-free and gluten-free beer brats, cheese-stuffed kielbasa, smoked barbecue pork and hot dogs. The assortment of dinner choices are located in front of the new parking garage on the South side of Ninth Street.
Chef Bob Fullerton of Desert Sky Creative Catering is our chef in the cooking demonstration tent at 5:30 p.m. Bob will be preparing a roasted peach soup with a sweet strawberry sauce. Bob has years of experience as a chef specializing in dishes with southwestern flavors. Cooking is his passion. Come armed with your cooking questions for Bob.
Local musicians Olivia Pevec, Mateo Sandate, Frank Martin, Aston Taufer and Aaron Taylor bring their group, All the Pretty Horses, to our music stage this week from 5:30-8 p.m. They are an American musical melting pot. Each of the “Horses” brings a unique history and interest in music to the group. Their original music and arrangements are created by working and exploring together. Request a favorite of their fans, “Once Around the Sun.” Our music sponsor this week is Early Morning Orchard. The Market wants to thank Skip from Early Morning Orchards for donating the chairs used for the music performances and cooking demonstrations.
Glenwood’s Downtown Market is held every Tuesday from 4-8 p.m. in the heart of Glenwood Springs. Booths fill Centennial Park and Ninth Street at Grand Avenue through September. Take a night off during your work week to relax and enjoy local food, local talent and pick up some local produce or fresh flowers to brighten the rest of the week.
