Customer Appreciation is one of the tunes this week at the Glenwood Saturday Farmers Market.

As the seasons change, so do the supplies at your Glenwood Springs Saturday Farmers Market.

This week will showcase our thank you to you, our customers, with a sampling of goodies available as you shop. In addition, the Defiance String Band will play as we begin to wrap up our 30th season. Please feel free to stop by and check us out as well as the specials available at this last full market offering.

Healthy Baker starts us off with chili cheese bread, organic apple and peach fritters and double stuffed focciaca bread, as well as hot elk jerky and plain and hot buffalo jerky from House of Smoke. Stop by to stock up for the winter ahead.

Pear juice and a wide variety of homemade jams and jellies are available at Cyn Cyr’s Jams and Jellies.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

The large supply of beets, onions, potatoes, summer squash, dried beans, freshly roasting chilis, green beans and apples from Devries Farm stand are just the tip of the variety and volume of fresh food available as you choose the products that your family will need to get through this winter.

Kaleb from Kaleb’s Katch will be on-hand this weekend as we celebrate customer appreciation. He will be once again grilling those incredibly tasty salmon wraps, so be sure to bring your appetite for the supplies of individual and cases of sustainably caught wild Alaskan salmon, including King salmon portions.

The lean grass-fed beef is found at Farmer Dave’s stand in a variety of cuts, including hamburger, roasts and jalapeno-cheddar bratwursts. Farmer Dave is taking orders for your Thanksgiving and Christmas meat birds. What a great feeling to have that part of the menu covered in advance.

Don’t miss fresh New Mexico pecan halves, choice naturally grown pumpkins and a wide assortment of Silt Mesa grown winter squash. The fresh turnips, Flattops wildflower honey and honeycomb offer a touch of nostalgia with a tasty choice of food. Cinnamon raisin, apricot oatmeal and wheat/white bread are among the homemade breads available this week (the wheat is home grown and ground by Jim).

Kuhn’s Peach Valley CSA will have a selection of beyond organic and organic apples and produce including herbs, pesto and a variety of late season products.

To see which vendors will continue for a couple more weeks, ask us when you are making your selections and enjoying our treats to you. Thank you for this 30th season!

We look forward to seeing you at your Glenwood Saturday Farmers Market and are open from 7:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Rite-Aid parking lot across from the Glenwood Springs High School.
