Heirloom Tomatoes !


Find heirloom tomatoes at Meadow Maid Foods. These are grown in soil under hoop houses. Very tasty !

Heirloom Tomatoes

C & R Farms will be bringing flavorful Colorado Peaches this week. Also Apricots plus Red & Ranier Cherries !

Fruit

If you are on the south side of town, The Fort Collins Farmers' Market at Harmony & Lemay has changed its hours. Sundays, 10 am - 2 pm. If you are down in Loveland, there is a new farmers' market at Jax on Tuesdays. Hours are from 3 pm - 6 pm. Loveland East Farmers' Market.

We are signed up to participate in the EBT Program ( Food Stamps ) and "Double Up ". This government program is a win/win, putting more dollars into the hands of farmers, and more fresh vegetables into the hands of working folks.

Double Up

The Pappardelle's Pasta booth will have several new flavors this week, including Winter Pear and Gorgonzola Raviolis plus Gluten-free Hatch Chile Trumpets.

Anita of Happy Girl Doll Clothes is bringing muffins ( Poppy seed, Gingerbread lemon, Crumb cake & Sweet jammies).

Several vendors attend every other week. This is the week for Meadow Maid Foods and Just Plain 'Ola Expected to be absent are: Grateful Goat, Daybreak Criations, Maddie's Kettle Korn, Alpine Organics & Earthly Arts.


I have created a Facebook Group for supporters of the Drake Road Farmers' Market. Feel free to join ! Drake Road Farmers' Market Patrons.

Veggie of the Week

Garlic

Garlic is grown and eaten and loved all over the world. Freshly dug garlic is so much more delicious than store bought !

UCDavis suggests peeling cloves, pureeing them with oil ( 2 parts oil to 1 part garlic ), packing into an airtight container and FREEZING IMMEDIATELY. This will stay soft enough to scoop out for sauteing. On this page are also hints for marinating garlic cloves in wine or vinegar.



Just Plain 'Ola

Just Ola

Hannah & Chris came up with an amazing idea: Granola without the grains ! Loaded with Pecans, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Coconut Chips... and flavored with Maple Syrup, Vanilla & Cinnamon. Find them near Rawhide Ranch.
