| Apologies and Hopes for the Future
Morning Fresh Dairy will not be bringing their milk truck to the market any more. They are wanting to concentrate on their new store front in Bellvue, the The Howling Cow Cafe. We wish them well and thank them for attending the market for so many years !
Colorado's Best Tamales and Gunter's Bavarian Grill both apologize for missing last Saturday's market. Unforeseen problems prevented their attendance. Also, Cliff of Wagon Wheel Jerky needs to rehab his house before winter.
We do have new vendors signing up ! Beehive Chocolates has incredible chocolate bars. From their website, ... only three ingredients in our chocolate-- cacao bean, cocoa butter, and cane sugar -- we keep things simple, allowing the natural essence of each bean to express itself in every mouthwatering bite. Also, with the cooling temperatures, Schell Shocked will start bringing cute crocheted hats & scarves.
C & R Farms brings Peaches, PLUMS, PEARS & APPLES from Palisade !
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.
Simply Baked will have lots of PIES this Saturday. Lori will be baking (peach pie), (key lime pie), (cherry pie), (apple caramel pie), plus (cinnamon rolls) (cup cakes)(gluten free muffins) and (gluten free brownies). Look for her near Miller Farms .ABSENT on 8/29/15 are: Nicco Chiropractic, Earth Elements, Daybreak Criations, Rustic Birdhouses and The Flour Bin.
Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman
Steve and Michelle Cockcroft have been bringing their organic produce to Drake Road since 2009. They and their family farm have a certified organic farm near Kersey. All the produce is clean & fresh & DELICIOUS ! For those of you near Greeley, they have a farm stand near Target.
They are getting lots of particularly nice melons this year. Also corn, cucumbers, fresh basil, potatoes, too much to list ! They also bring Hazel Dell Mushrooms, and peaches from Morton's Orchards in Palisade.
