GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The summer just seems to be flying by, and as I speak to others, the return to school of our children seems to be our foremost thought.

It is important to most of us to spend time with our families, and we often find that time as we are cooking. One of our family’s favorite dinners is lean beef steaks, Yukon Gold potatoes and Olathe Sweet sweet corn.

These and other fresh foods are available at the Glenwood Springs Farmer’s Market on Saturday.

The chili roaster at DeVries farm stand adds an incredible aroma, making our mouths water.

The peaches at Forte Farms are so juicy and flavorful that I have seen people who didn’t care for peaches become entranced.

The beautiful fresh cut flowers and organically grown herbs, beans and peaches at Kuhns’ Peach Valley CSA are just a start of the weekly shopping.

Pappardelle’s fine pastas have a selection that appeals to all, as well as frozen ravioli.

The Green River melons and wildflower honey are just the right taste to finish your meal.

Farmer Dave’s offers frozen steaks, roasts and hamburger as well as thick-sliced bacon and sausage that helps with choices for breakfast and dinner.

Don’s BBQ is donating money from each sandwich sold this Saturday to the Relay for Life effort. He also has tasty brats and ribs each week for those who would like someone else to do their cooking.

This week’s trivia question is “How many generations of customers do we have?”

The Glenwood Springs Farmer’s Market is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday in the Rite-Aid parking lot, 1400 block of Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs, through Oct. 27.
