GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The calendar says fall is officially here, and with it the last of the out-of-season lambs have arrived. The selection of winter squash and pumpkins continues to grow in volume and variety.

The volume of products throughout the market has grown as the harvest season progresses. With the bounty we have, there are plenty of fruits and vegetables for folks to can and freeze for the coming winter, as well as the fresh produce to enjoy for coming the week.

Under the canopy of DeVries Farm, one can also find honey crisp and Jonathan apples, as well as the aroma and packages of the mild, medium and hot roasted chilis.

Kaleb’s Katch brings us his incredible wraps as well as a special on king salmon for this week. Kaleb also sells seafood in cases for those planning ahead for the holidays.

Farmer Dave has an offering of New York strip, tenderloin and rib-eye steaks, as well as lean, tasty hamburger. Keep the grill fired up, but now is also the time to stock the freezer for winter.

Banjo Joe and the Forte Farms stand brings us pears, juicy peaches and plums to fill the fruit needs of every diet.

Savory Hearth Bakery once again will have Blondie brownies, carrot cake and a selection of double-stuffed foccacia sourdough, medium Hatch chili sourdough and cheese organic sourdough breads. All of the products are made using Colorado-grown organic flour.

Kuhn’s Peach Valley CSA is bringing the last of the season’s organic peaches, local organic field-grown tomatoes and organic honey crisp apples, as well as fresh flowers to brighten the table.

The Pasta Girl offers multiple flavors of pasta and orzo for a selection that is hard to beat, from chocolate to garlic chive and many in between.

At Jim’s Mesa Forge and Farm, the winter squash is next to the fresh turnips and a new crop of beets.

Wild flower honey and pecans again make their appearance.

The brats and ribs that the barbecue stand provides will again be waiting for that perfect fall lunch or dinner.

These wonderful choices and others can be found at the Glenwood Springs Farmers Market, 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday in front of Rite-Aid on Grand Avenue.
