| Thank you for your support !
All of you who came out to shop in the rain last Saturday, you deserve a special pat on the back. Thank you !
There have been a lot of inquiries about how Food Stamps ( EBT ) are matched at farmers' markets. This is only OFFICIAL at farmers' markets who have obtained funds... from organizations who have obtained grants from the USDA, or who have generous donors. The only farmers' market in Colorado who has this capacity is the Greeley Farmers' Market. Greeley received their support from Wholesome Wave. These "matches" are only to be used for fresh fruits and vegetables ( also plants & seeds that will produce fruits and vegetables.)
Although I do not have funding, I do support the SPIRIT of the law that was passed in the latest Farm Bill ( to get people eating more fruits and vegetables ). So, starting Saturday, May 9, the Drake Road Farmers' Market will match ( up to $ 5.00 ) EBT tokens to be used ONLY for fresh produce.
New vendor on 5/23 is Bedouin Coffee.
Returning vendors are Forever By Faith, Matt O'ChainSaw, Loco Bueno
Missing this week are Calico Kids, SoilScape Solutions, Meadow Maid
Drake Road Farmers' Market is now listed on YELP. I hope we get lots of kind reviews !
Daybreak Criations will be bringing Alpaca Poo . This can be used directly on your garden ! No composting needed !
Sweet European Treats will be bringing fresh Rhubarb Kuchen, also a low-sugar Rhubarb Sauce.
Some of the people listed below will not be able to attend this first market. Please do not expect C & R Fruits, Fossil Creek , or Croft Family Farm until a bit later in season.
Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman
Colorado's Best Tamales is well named ! Laura makes her Tamales from an authentic family recipe, then brings a wide variety of perfectly steamed Tamales to the market .
Laura's Tamales have generous fillings that range from mild to hot, meaty to vegetarian. There are usually samples out to taste.
Come early for the spicy hot chicken and pork ones. They sell out fast, because they are so good ! And are reasonably priced $ 11.00 per half dozen.
Colorado's Best Tamales also sells freshly made Corn Chips and a fresh ( spicy hot ! ) Salsa.
