Glenwood Saturday Market

The Garfield County Fair is this week, and as all participants bring their best to the many shows, so too do we bring our best to you at the Glenwood Springs Farmers Market held on Saturdays in the Rite-Aid parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. This week has also been National Farmers Market week. If you are able to eat, thank a farmer! The weather has varied this week and seems to have held up some haying but has kept our pastures greener.

Just in are wild caught Bristol Bay sockeye fillets at Kaleb’s Katch this week, although the smoked salmon, cod and halibut are also available.

Healthy Baker Don offers an organic double stuffed hot chili and cheddar sourdough bread and his famous vegan, organic four-seed Dakota bread in addition to baked apple fritters, organic carrot cake, Elvis bars and chocolate brownies. A purchase here is a great way to fill the sweet cravings.

Mesa Forge and Farm offers Plum Daisy’s award-winning jams, including mission fig and vanilla pear. Wildflower honey, bee pollen, homemade cinnamon pecan bread and zucchini bread reside next to the pecans and freshly pulled turnips.

This week at the farmer’s market some of Cyn Cyr’s selections are organic peach and apricot jams. She also has made more bread and butter pickles — all locally handmade in small batches.

DeVries Farm brings the chili roaster and the incredible taste and aroma of freshly roasting chilies (hot, medium and mild).

Summer squash, fantastic tasting red and gold potatoes, field grown tomatoes, onions along with a wide selection of canned salsas, and pickled vegetables for those who don’t have the time to can are all available. The selection of cucumbers, peaches and tomatoes allow the home canners a great week. Olathe Sweet sweet corn, green beans and cabbage help us round out our menus.

Kuhns’ Peach Valley CSA continues to celebrate our 30-plus years spending summer Saturdays along Grand Avenue while at the Glenwood Springs Farmers Market. This week we bring Peach Valley/Garfield County field grown “beyond organic” summer squash, cucumbers, greens, kale, garlic; along with certified organic Palisade red haven peaches. Also, yellow transparent early summer cooking apples.

This week’s music, fresh picked through the day, will come our way courtesy of the Farm Hand String Band.
