Local Farmers Markets

Now that summer has begun, it is time to think about fresh produce and that means farmers markets!!!

There are a surprising amount of markets in the area! The best list i have found is on Colorado Fresh Markets

This past saturday I grabbed a friend and headed to the Cherry Creek Farmers market! They moved to the front part of the parking lot this year. That means more parking by Cost Plus – woohoo!
I ususally park on the other side of the river. They finally finished their landscaping and have turnouts for parking over there. Not as much as when they had it all dug up, but it is an option!

The options for produce were pretty limited – but i did manager to get 2 peppers (1 red, 1 yellow), a bunch of green onions (huge bulbs), 2 yellow squash, 1 giant cucumber, a bunch of cilantro, and a pound of tomatillos for under $10! Color me tickled pink on the tomatillo front – i’ve had a recipe that called for 8 that i have been unable to cook due to the obscene cost of these little guys in the stores! Yeah! Come over tonight for green enchilada casserole!

There were a bunch of new options at the farmers market in addition to the old standbys
Mermaids Bakery – i visit them downtown for all my pie needs! But they also make other amazing goodies!
White Girl Salsa – great green salsa options and heck with a name like that i had to check it out
Tea – a new tea stand with some fabulous flavors (if anyone remembers the name, comment!)

    I wanted to see if you guys would have any interest covering the premiere of my film, "Standards of Ethical Conduct" on June 6th at the Bug Theatre. It was shot in Denver starring notable local talent such as Chuck Roy and Damon Guerrasio. Check out http://www.StandardsOfEthicalConduct.com for the trailer, etc, and drop me a note at rhardgrave@dozapictures.com if you’re interested.

    Thanks, keep up the good work on the blog!
