| Heirloom Tomatoes !
Find Peaches & Cream corn down at Miller Farms, next to the gazebo. Home of the $ 10 Bag Sale !
C & R Farms will be bringing flavorful Colorado Peaches this week. Apricots are iffy, but plenty Red & Ranier Cherries !
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.
Several vendors attend every other week. This is the week for Loco Bueno. Expected to be absent are: Grateful Goat, SHAK, Just 'Ola, Roses Creamery, & Happy Girl Doll Clothes.
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
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.
If you are interested in learning more about alpacas, visit Denise at the Daybreak Criations booth. A Cria is a baby alpaca, and she often brings one ( or two ! ) to market. She sells knitted alpaca socks & hats, or you can buy roving and yarns for your own projects !
