Peaches and Tomatoes and Corn, Oh My !


Sweet corn is finally here ! What I have been tasting from the market is crisp and sweet and just right for throwing on the grill ! Try the "Miller Method"- put corn on the grill with husks on. Take off after husks are charred a bit. So simple !

t=Corn Grilled

C & R Farms will be bringing Peaches from Palisade this Saturday ! ( Sweet Cherries from Montana ) Croft Family Farms will be bringing organic fruits from Dave Morton's Orchards. Croft also has organic mushrooms from Hazel Dell.

Peaches

The 2015 Farm Fresh Directory is available now. Access it online, or pick up free copies at almost any farmers' market !

I support the SPIRIT of the law that was passed in the latest Farm Bill ( to get people eating more fruits and vegetables ). Drake Road Farmers' Market will match ( up to $ 5.00 ) EBT tokens to be used ONLY for fresh produce.

New vendor will be Gunter's Bavarian Grill. Gunter & Nicolette will be serving Krautburgers and German Potato Salad ! Look for them at the north end of the market.

Beautiful pink, golden & white oyster mushrooms from The Mushroom Haus. Get there early, as Mark & Julie sell out fast.

Oyster Mushrooms

ABSENT on 7/25/15 are: Soilscape Solutions , Pain Wizard , Earth Elements, Cheyenne Honey, Daybreak Criations , Rocco Chiropractic, Calico Kids, Task Force BBQ and Meadow Maid.

Visiting this week is Dr Chad Mcmahan of Revelation Chiropractic, Elizabeth of Heidi's Healing Hands, and Jean Meldrum of WEP-USA ( helping Exhange Students in the Fort Collins area ).

Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman

Turtle Mountain Tea

Natalie of Turtle Mountain Tea has an amazing variety of Kombuchas. I drink these instead of sodas when I want something fizzy ( that is also good for body & soul ). I am also eager to try some of her new sauerkrauts, one of which has Purslane from MY garden !
