Good food never goes out of season

The welcome rain and cooler weather have left us appreciating the change of seasons. But at Glenwood’s Saturday Farmers Market, good food is never out of season.

Kaleb’s freshest Sock-eye Katch of the year is in. Sustainably wild-caught Alaskan sockeye fillets and portions, smoked sockeye, sockeye lox and new this year candied sockeye are just the beginning.

Devries Farm is filling the air with the aroma of freshly roasting chilis.

Organic Paonia peaches are to be found among the fine selection at Peach Valley CSA.

The prime choice with Farmer Dave are roasts, this being a great time to get the crockpot going.

Bratwursts, brisket and pulled pork are available at the barbecue stand (ready to eat lunch or an easy dinner).

Home-made bread, including zucchini, cinnamon-raisin and focaccia made with a 28-year-old starter, allow for many options this week.

Wildflower honey, award-winning Plum Daisy jam and pecans offer a unique start to your shopping at Mesa Forge and Farm.

Good friends, conversation, green beans, apples, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, beets, greens, onions and turnips are found though out the market allow several options in quantity and selection. The beginning signs of winter squash are slowly finding their way to our market.

Weather permitting, a local author will be having a book signing this week at our Saturday market, which is located in the Rite-Aid parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
