All of the vendors have busy schedules this time of the year doing the markets in our valley and the Western Slope. The produce vendors have stories to tell about their farms. The hot food vendors share a love a cooking. The artisans’ products are made from the heart. When shopping at the market, take a moment to get to know the hardworking folks who come every week, rain or shine, to bring our communities their local products.Mario Batali, in his cookbook “Molto Gusto,” writes, “There is nothing that inspires me more, no matter where I am in the world, than to visit a local farmers’ market. To see what the sweet earth is giving up to those who care enough to coax it into fruition is my main gauge of the greatness of a town or city in any society.”Glenwood’s Downtown Market wants to thank all the customers who support our market and other markets in our valley. Glenwood’s Downtown Market takes place from 4 p.m. to dusk Tuesdays, in Centennial Park at Ninth and Grand Avenue in downtown Glenwood Springs.
