Flavors of fall starting to appear at the Saturday farmers market

Sam SilviusGlenwood Springs Farmers MarketGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

As the weather is cooler this week, I begin to wonder if fall is just around the corner. Looking at the produce coming in, one can see the first of the winter squash making its appearance next to the roasted chilis and Gala apples at the DeVries stand.Around the corner, the Pappardelle’s Pasta canopy has several different flavor choices of orzo pasta to try.Fort Farms brings us Alberta and Cresthaven peaches, both of which are freestone peaches that make canning much easier than the clings that were here earlier in the season.Peach Valley CSA is offering a fantastic choice of organic Honey Crisp apples as well as peaches, cucumbers and green beans.For the early shopper, Savory Hearth Bakery has apple cinnamon walnut raisin bread and enough organic double fudge brownies for all.Kaleb’s Katch is featuring grilled salmon wraps and a special on sockeye salmon fillets this week. Stock your freezer now for good eating in the months ahead.Farmer Dave returns this week with lean tasty steaks that we look forward to taking home.To choose the Green River melon that is right for you, follow your nose to the Mesa Forge & Farm stand and try a sample of the many tasty varieties. Mesa Forge also offers pecan halves and wildflower honey.The BBQ stand prepares mouth-watering pulled pork and brisket sandwiches to fill our stomachs as we shop our way through the choice offerings to be found at the Glenwood Springs Farmers Market.The market is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the Rite-Aid parking lot on Grand Avenue.
