Glenwood Saturday Market

The days are beginning to feel different as the hours of daylight dwindle and the nip in the air is more noticeable. One might think that the gardens are all done, but much produce remains for those who are still stocking their larder and who enjoy the freshest local vegetables and fruits.

Kuhns’ Peach Valley CSA Farm will feature Garfield County field-grown, last-of-the-summer tomatoes, sweet peppers, greens, brassicas, garlic, potatoes and carrots, as well as PV-grown heirloom apples and pears and fresh pressed cider.

At Healthy Baker the incredible apple and peach fritters have returned, becoming the perfect complement to your coffee.

Market-goers will also find double-stuffed focaccia bread made with sun dried tomatoes, Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, garlic, four herbs, cheddar and mozzarella, and 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 something sweet, a piece of scrumptious carrot cake should fit the bill.

This week Cyn brings a fantastic new jam: plum-raspberry. Also, find corn relish and her fabulously famous raspberry jam. 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 ounces) for a 50-cent discount on your next purchase.

The selection of fall apples allows for a wide variety of tastes and textures for a multitude of uses; applesauce, drying, pies and fresh eating. Stop by DeVries farm stand. The freshly roasting chilies offer a tantalizing peak at the many fall flavors found at this market. The winter squash, pumpkins and tomatoes are also still available. Winter squash are an easy way to carry good quality produce into the winter, as much of it will easily keep.

Mesa Forge and Farm brings Flat Tops wildflower 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 are great for breakfast toast all week, while the pumpkin bread and Amish friendship bread offer a sweet treat.

The long-awaited wild, all-natural, chem-free gulf shrimp is here. Stop by the Glenwood Saturday Market and grab some shrimp from the Kalebs Katch booth for the weekend. We will have Wild (White) Gulf Shrimp in 21- to 25-count shell-on 1-pound bags as well as wild (brown) gulf shrimp in 15- to 20-count P&D tail-on 1-pound bags. All natural and no preservatives — yummy! In addition, wild caught Alaskan salmon are available in portions or fillets. Smoked or fresh are also available.

These products listed and many more are found in the Rite-Aid parking lot from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
