Glenwood Saturday Market
The last few weeks have seen the colors in the area changing, and this includes the colors and flavors at your Glenwood Springs Saturday Farmers Market. I am hearing that snow is in the forecast for higher elevations, and this makes me feel as though I need to scurry to finish filling the pantry for winter.
The crisp, clean scent of several varieties of apples, bags of freshly combined pinto beans, red and gold potatoes, onions and beets are among the incredible array of produce available at the DeVries farm stand. As you make your selections here don’t forget the freshly roasted chilies.
Kuhns’ Peach Valley CSA Farm will feature Garfield County field grown, last of the summer tomatoes, sweet peppers, greens, brassicas, garlic, potatoes and carrots. Also, PV grown heirloom apples and pears, as well as fresh pressed cider and homemade pesto.
At Healthy Baker the incredible apple and peach fritters have returned, becoming the perfect complement to your coffee.
In other selections here, find double-stuffed focaccia bread made with sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, garlic, four herbs, cheddar and mozzarella, his famous vegan, organic four seeded Dakota bread and an organic double stuffed hot chilies and cheddar in sourdough bread. Those with a chocolate craving will enjoy a brownie or elvis bar. For those just needing a sweet, a piece of scrumptious carrot cake should fit the bill.
The selection of jams at Cyn’s stand is always a wonder to behold; be sure to stop in for this week’s special. Get a free sample taste because Mama said, “Don’t buy the shoes until you try them on!” Remember to bring a viable jar (8, 12 or 16 ounce) for a 50-cent discount on your next purchase.
Mesa Forge and Farm brings Flat Tops wild flower honey, rabbit brush and alfalfa mix honeys, pollen, Plum Daisy’s award-winning organic jams and a selection of freshly picked, pulled or dug produce from the delicatas, to turnips and red Pontiac potatoes. Jim’s pumpkin selection is also here from the warty to the best for pies.
The cinnamon raisin and potato breads offer a choice for breakfast toast all week while the pumpkin bread and Amish friendship bread offer a sweet treat. Stop in to see what special bread is available this week.
The long-awaited wild, all-natural, chem-free gulf shrimp is here! Stop by the Glenwood Saturday Market and grab some shrimp from the Kaleb’s Katch booth for the weekend. We will have wild (white) gulf shrimp in 21-25-count shell-on 1-pound bags as well as wild (brown) gulf shrimp in 15-20-count P&D tail-on 1-pound bags. All natural and no preservatives — these are incredible!
In addition, wild caught Alaskan salmon in portions or fillets, smoked or fresh, are also available.
The products listed and many more are found in the Rite-Aid parking lot from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Another sign that things are returning to normal goes up on the grassy lawn at Two Rivers Park in Glenwood Springs Wednesday evening — with an eye toward a full return next summer.
