Saturday Farmers Market moves around the corner

Glenwood Saturday Farmers Market

Glenwood’s Saturday Farmers Market has shifted location this season and is now between Rite-Aid and the Executive Plaza, just south of Rite-Aid.

The farmers are enjoying the rain showers this week as some are short on water and the weeds sure pull better after a rain.

The vegetables that we are all looking for are starting to show up at the market after a chilly start in May.

The selection of homemade breads and treats are just getting started at the Healthy Baker’s: organic carrot cake, organic double fudge brownies, locally grown organic and vegan 4-seed Dakota bread, organic banana bread, gluten free Amish morning glory muffins, as well as regular Amish organic morning glory muffins, and hot hatch chili and cheddar bread.

Fresh greens, organic Paonia cherries and peas are the beginning at Kuhn’s Peach Valley CSA, while next to him Farmer Dave again has a fantastic selection of grass-fed beef and pork. Bacon, pork chops, German and breakfast sausage add a tasty start to any breakfast, while beef roasts (for the crock pot), steaks and hamburger provide the greatest family grilling opportunity.

The sweet corn is slowly ripening in Grand Junction, so the early DeVries Farm shopper can choose from rhubarb, frozen pie cherries, onions, freshly dug potatoes, summer squash and a large variety of canned salsas, relishes and pickled goods along with juicy sweet Texas watermelon and Arizona cantaloupe.

Cyn Cyr’s homemade jams and jellies add that unique flair that you want at your weekend gathering, from blueberry Tahitian vanilla to strawberry lemon.

Kaleb’s Katch offers a premier selection of freshly frozen, sustainably caught Alaskan salmon fillets, jerky and check out the new salmon bratwursts.

Shoppers can find Flat Tops wildflower honey, bee pollen, cinnamon-raisin, oatmeal and wheat blend bread made from wheat grown and freshly ground on Silt Mesa next to the Plum Daisy award-winning jams located at Mesa Forge and Farm.

These flavorful finds and many others can be found weekly from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays through the first part of November.
