GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The cooler weather that many have been waiting for seems to have returned again, making our time at the Farmers Market feel more like fall.

The apples are in full swing with many varieties available at the various stands. Banjo Joe at Forte Farms also has fresh roasted peanuts to complement the apple and Bartlett pear selection.

The barbecue stand will have chili for the first time this fall, as well as those superb brisket and pulled pork sandwiches.

Under the green canopies of the DeVries stand, the freshly roasted chilis await you along with Rocking W cheese, made in Olathe.

The Pasta Girl brings us a wonderful selection of ready to use Pappardelle’s pastas and sauces to help keep our meals on time.

Farmer Dave has a choice selection of New York strip steaks and hamburger for stocking your freezer for the winter months to come.

The fritters and bread from Savory Hearth Bakery keep us coming back and wondering how we will survive without them for the winter.

The fantastic salmon, halibut and fishing tales that are found at Kaleb’s Katch are a pleasure not to be missed.

The Peach Valley CSA canopy brings us the sounds of the Farmhand String Band and a variety of apples, tomatoes and potatoes, as well as the fresh cut sunflowers to chase away the grey of a rainy day.

At Mesa Forge and Farm, Photos from the Farm are nestled in with a stunning array of knucklehead, Cinderella and pie pumpkins.

While browsing through the stands, one has the opportunity to visit with the farmers who bring their best harvest products to the market each week. I wonder, as I watch, who enjoys the conversations more, our friends and customers or the farmers?

All of this wonderful produce and much more can be found at the Glenwood Springs Farmers Market, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday in front of Rite-Aid on Grand Avenue.
