Farmers markets in Garfield County, Colorado, prepare to open for the season

Kelley Cox Post Independent

There’s nothing like eating a peach picked only days — or even hours — before you bite into it. With farmers markets spread throughout the valley, it’s easy to make that a reality. The first opens tonight in Glenwood Springs, and others throughout the area begin soon. Shop with the seasons at these area farmers markets.
