I will hold market unless the City of Fort Collins issues warnings asking citizens to stay at home.
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.
As the weather warms, we see more of our vendors return.
On June 9, I plan to host my second Knit in Public. Feel free to contact me if you would like to help with this !
If you are concerned about extremely low milk prices for dairy farmers ( Vertical Integration in Milk Industry, pls consider supporting a local dairy. Royal Crest Dairy is based out of Longmont and will be offering samples of their products at market.
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. Meadow Maid will be here this week with grass-fed beef from Wyoming, and Just 'Ola ! Also, Kaleb will be bringing his Alaskan seafood. I expect to see Matt Diemer with heirloom tomato plants, plus hens & chicks( sempervivums ).
Expected absences: Grateful Goat, Dynamic Roots, Maddie's Kettle Korn, Sunray Natural, Rose's Nut Butters, Rawhide Ranch. ( as of 7:30 am )
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
We continue to have a nice selection of locally grown bedding. Last week I bought Purple Cauliflower from FC Sown & Grown, Tomatillos from Tierra Bella & Snapdragons from Bayberry Fresh. I like to wait until the end of May to plant tomatoes.
Fauzi Silbaq brings delicious Hummus, Labaneh, Shankalish & Halawa to market.
Each week he seems to think of a new delicacy for us to try. Last Saturday I got the Mutabbal Shamandar, which is Tahini Paste & Roasted Beets. Delicious on crackers !
