It is hard to believe that we are already in September. The weather has again offered a unique set of challenges for our farmers in planting, irrigation and, of course, harvesting. Some crops are fantastic, and others have not fared so well.

The smoked salmon, halibut, king and coho salmon are available in portions and fillets. The best selection is found fairly early in the day, although one can often find a wonderful dinner option here later as well.

Cyn Cyr’s locally made jams and jellies are again awaiting your selection in addition to a tasty selection of homemade pickles and relishes that are hard to find elsewhere. Please enjoy a sample of these fresh products.

At Healthy Baker, getting there early this week is the key. The incredible apple and peach fritters have returned, becoming the perfect complement to your coffee. You will also find double-stuffed focaccia bread made with sun-dried tomatoes, Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, garlic, four herbs, cheddar and mozzarella, his famous vegan, organic four seeded Dakota bread and organic double-stuffed hot chilies and cheddar in sourdough bread. The opportunity to satisfy a chocolate craving can also be found here with a brownie.

High altitude wildflower honey, local alfalfa and rabbit brush honey, bee pollen and honey comb are at Mesa Forge and Farm’s stand next to the wide array of Plum Daisy’s award-winning organic jams. Potato bread and rolls along with cinnamon raisin, oatmeal and zucchini breads are also here. The first of the flowers and summer squash are showing themselves as well.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Stop by and enjoy the photos from the farm.

Kuhns’ Peach Valley CSA will bring to market its Garfield County field grown, “beyond organic” summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet peppers, greens, basil and garlic, along with certified organic Palisade Elberta and Angelus peaches. Also, find PV grown McIntosh apples and pears.

DeVries farm stand will be roasting chilies, allowing a chance to watch this interesting operation, as well as having a large variety of fresh vegetables, including red and gold potatoes, cabbage, summer squash, green beans, field tomatoes, Olathe Sweet sweet corn and the beginning of the winter squash.

While I am hoping that summer is a long way from over, the sounds, smells and produce of fall are beginning to be found at the Glenwood Farmers Market, located in the Rite-Aid parking lot on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
