Early Morning Orchard, Okagawa, Z’s Orchard and Roan Creek Ranch will be offering a bountiful array of fresh fruits and veggies including sweet corn, heirloom tomatoes, melons, peppers of all colors, green beans, Palisade peaches and fresh herbs.

Delicious Greek gyros, Greek salads, and vegetarian falafel are offered by Windy City Eats. The business started at the Basalt winter market and continued to expand to the Glenwood and Aspen farmers markets. Windy City currently works festivals throughout the state and enjoys sharing Chicago-style Greek food with others.

This week in the music tent you will find the Smuggler Mountain Boys. The Smuggler Mountain Boys have been playing bluegrass, traditional and contemporary acoustic music in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2005. Music begins at 5:30 and is sponsored this week by Noone Law Firm.

The weekly cooking demonstration features Chris Randall, sous chef of The Pullman restaurant. Randall is dedicated to the use of fresh local seasonal food in creating The Pullman’s ever-changing menu. He’ll be demonstrating this creativity with this week’s fresh Market fare beginning at 5:30 in the cooking tent. The cooking demonstration is sponsored by The Pullman and Town restaurants each week.

Handcrafted By Little Hands is a family operation, mostly run by the children, Zechariah, Sarah and Adam. Rob Matthews and Jennifer Matthews helped their children get going with this enterprising operation and are in their third year at the market. Zechariah does most of the woodworking for the business, and Sarah is a budding young rancher. Rob’s philosophy is “the more I teach them, the less I have to do!”

You’ll find all of this and more at the Glenwood Downtown Market from 4-8 p.m. Tuesdays in Centennial Park at the corner of Ninth and Grand. Credit and debit cards and EBTs are accepted, and you can double the value of SNAP benefits. For more information call 970-618-3650. Thank you to our many local sponsors including Glenwood Springs Tourism Board, Alpine Bank, Community Broadband Network, and the city of Glenwood Springs.
