New vendors include Cricket Wireless and Pastry Puffs ( cupcakes ).

Non-profits this week include Volunteers of America, and the Unity International Project ( selling MayaNut powder to support a sister village in Guatemala ).


EVERY OTHER WEEK: Some of our vendors appear every other week. This is the week for Loco Bueno


Swarm season is upon us ! If you see a bee swarm, pls do not call an exterminator ! Call a BEEKEEPER ! Mike of Whiteside Honey has offered his cell number ( 970 ) 663-2486 . Bees ( when swarming ) are NOT agressive ! It is an amazing thing to see in nature ! If you see one, react quickly. The bees may not be there in an hour !

Sincerely, Nan Zimmerman

Veggie of the Week

Sugar Snaps

Sugar Snaps acan be found this week at Miller Farms. They are fat, sweet, crispy and DELICIOUS !

I like to just eat them raw ( some varieties need to be de stringed ). They are also great in a stir-fry, or can be steamed lightly.

While these veggies show up in supermarkets ( imported from California ), the FRESH ones cannot be compared !



Tierra Bella Farm

Claire

Claire Slosson is running Tierra Bella Farm on South Taft Hill Road in Fort Collins. She has extensive experience in farming sustainably ( and organically ! ) She brings lovely vegetables. Last week I saw lots of greens, plus radishes and some vegetable plants. I got a mini-cabbage from her and steamed it whole !

Talk to her if you are interested in raw goat milk shares, or Yoga on the Farm ( Wednesday evenings ).
