Glenwood Saturday Market

We are celebrating our nation’s independence this weekend, and as I think back to the changes I have seen, I wonder what was it that we ate so many years ago and where it came from.

From the times of many having their own family milk cow, a few hens, large garden, raising our own beef or pork or hunting wild game. Our country has continues to expanded and now we feed far more people on less land. We have been able to transport goods farther and hold them longer offering many additional options and varieties of fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products and breads. This has led to changes in planting, growing and harvesting as well as volume and quality.

Locally we still find family gardens, community gardens, grocery stores and your Glenwood Springs farmer’s market.

Here you can find fresh cherries, apricots, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, red and golden new season potatoes as well as organically grown cherries and several options of fresh peas.

Foccachia bread, carrot cake, brownies, yummy baked apple crisps and cinnamon raisin, oatmeal and friendship breads are a beginning of the options in the breads that you would like to feed to your family.

Organic jams and jellies as well as zucchini relish and Plum Daisy’s award-winning jams are also available next to the Flat Tops wild flower honey.

The farmers producing all of these crops are not only outstanding in their fields, they are at the market to answer questions and share their years of knowledge growing produce in western Colorado.

The sustainably caught frozen Alaskan salmon rounds out your incredible shopping experience at the farmer’s market held in the Rite Aid parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays through November.
