| June is Busting out all over !
Remember that election rules have changed this year. Independents may now vote in primaries. June 26 is Colorado's primary. More info at Larimer County . Or stop in at the "Mark Williams" booth.
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 starting at Jax on Tuesday, June 5. Hours are from 3 pm - 6 pm. Loveland East Farmers' Market.
As the weather warms, we see more of our vendors return. Expect sweet cherries in late June/ early July.
We are signed up to participate in the EBT Program ( Food Stamps ) and the "Double Up " Program.
Some of our vendors appear every other week. Cindy of Meadow Maid will be here this week with Wyoming grass fed beef and hoop house veggies, including BEETS, SUGAR SNAPS & CARROTS!
Expected absences are Nick's Microgreens and Black Garlic, Maddie's Kettle Korn, plus Grateful Goat Decor.
I have created a Facebook Group for supporters of the Drake Road Farmers' Market. Feel free to join ! Drake Road Farmers' Market Patrons.
Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman
Veggie of the Week
Beets are a nutritional powerhouse ! Find them at Meadow Maid Foods !
Here is a salad idea: Peel and grate 1 pound ( each ) of Carrots and Beets. ( Hope you have a food processor, or you will have purple hands ! ) Mix 2 T Oil, 1 T. Vinegar, 1 T. Honey & 1 T. Poppy Seeds in large bowl, then add the Carrots & Beets. Let stand 30 minutes in refrigerator to let flavors blend.
Jessi Godinez ( of El Burrito fame ) brings her grandmother's authentic fresh Mexican salsas & tortillas to the market every Saturday. If you don't like cilantro in a salsa, Agustina's is where to go, as they do not use this in their salsas.
She brings different flavored flour tortillas, including jalapeno !
