farmers’ market known as Glenwood’s Downtown Market opens June 10, at
Centennial Park at Ninth Street and Grand Avenue. Celebrating 10 years, the
Downtown Market is a thriving summer staple in the hot springs town.
1. Taste the season. Try olive oils, freshly baked bread, Colorado wines and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Vendors are eager to showcase and share their locally grown and lovingly made products. Many offer samples to try. Top crops to try in the early months of summer are tender lettuces, arugula and apricots; as the season matures look for cherries, eggplant, green beans, basil and tomatoes.
2. Learn something new. Cooking demos are a mainstay of the Downtown Market, gather round and learn how to prepare a variety of food that’s fresh, fast, healthy and most importantly -- delicious. Check out Christina Gore’s lesson on vegan cooking at the inaugural Market.
3. Free music. Throughout the 14-week season the Market hosts musical entertainment. The season opener features award-winning songwriter and performer, Frank Martin playing everything from Texas swinging waltzes to Louisiana Zydeco.
4. Because variety adds spice. There’s always something special going on at the Market. Find out what’s happening on a particular Tuesday at www.glenwoodmarket.com or just show up to see what’s going on. A highlight of June 10th Market is Glenwood Springs Garden Club’s annual plant sale. The Glenwood Springs Parks Department will also be giving away tree seedlings until they’re gone!
5. Connect with the community. The atmosphere at the Market is low key and friendly. It’s a great place to connect with people – visitors and locals alike. Why not ask a local for recommendations on other great things do in Glenwood Springs?
