Next Market: April 30

We are hoping for sunshine this Saturday, but are prepared for rain. Bring your umbrella and enjoy April showers !

Not every vendor can come every market. If you have any questions about whether your favorite vendor is at market, feel free to call me (970) 218-5521.

NEW this year are Whiteside Honey from Loveland, Rebel Popcorn, Bowtie Tulips, Rocky Mountain Macarons, and Wisconsin Cheese. Heather of Homestead Ranch will be bringing products from her dairy goat herd, starting in May. Jay of Naturall Beef will be bringing Beef ( not grass fed ).

We welcome back Morning Fresh Dairy. They will be bringing milk in glass bottles, plus their award winning Noosa Yogurt !

Morning Fresh Dave

Josh of SunRay Natural Farm says his hens have been laying nicely. So he will have chicken eggs for market, with other species ( duck, quail ) later on. His girls are fed only sprouted whole grains, greens and bugs from the farm. No chicken feed = NO GMO corn and soy !

Swarm of bees

Be sure to watch for bees swarming from now until late June. Here is a photo from Red Dog Expressions. Bees in a swarm are NOT dangerous ! The Northern Colorado Beekeepers suggest telephoning (970) 568-9896 if you identify a swarm. Other numbers to call are Mike at Whiteside Honey ( 970) 663-2486 or Kris at Red Dog Honey ( 970 ) 219-6468.

Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman
