Farmers Market continues this weekend

Sam Silvius
Glenwood Saturday Market

As many of our area markets are closing for the season, your Glenwood Springs Saturday Farmers Market is open with a widening supply of fresh produce through the end of October.

The summer squash, freshly dug potatoes, roasting chili peppers, Gala apples, beets and bags of winter onions are among the many items in canning quantities found at DeVries farm stand.

Kuhn’s Peach Valley CSA brings us better-than-organic snap beans, field ripened tomatoes, organic Palisade and Paonia peaches, Mac apples, Bartlett pears, onions, leeks, pesto fresh greens and herbs. Palisade nectarines are a tempting treat also found at this stand.

Cyn Cyr’s homemade organic gingered Paonia peach preserves and raspberry serrano pepper jelly are the top choices this week.

Kaleb’s Katch again offers fillets and portions of their sustainably caught fresh frozen Alaskan salmon and cod for your dining pleasure.

Healthy Baker offers the perfect coffee snack, be it an apple and peach fritter, organic carrot cake or double fudge brownie. Their chili cheese bread and organic banana bread allow us to enjoy their baking all week long.

Flat tops wildflower honey, silt alfalfa honey, bee pollen and beeswax are buzzing at the market.

Silt Mesa delicata and hubbard squash along with the acorn squash are beginning to make their way to the market. Next to them, one can find freshly pulled beets, onions and turnips. Homemade cinnamon raisin bread, wheat/white bread as well as apple oatmeal breads are a flavorful addition to any breakfast.

The Saturday Farmers Market is open from 7:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. across Grand Avenue from the high school in front of Rite-Aid.
