Farmers Market Feasts
In this newsletter I would like to showcase some recipes using our vegetables, Western Slope fruit, and other ingredients that you can source locally through the farmers markets. We have 2 wonderful farmers markets in the area. One is in Salida is on Saturdays in Alpine Park from 8:00am – 12:30pm and the other is held on Sunday in Buena Vista on E. Main St. behind the B.V. Roastery from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
Beans and Bacon
Find amazing locally produced bacon from Dennis and Elaine of Wind Kist Ranch. This bacon is lean and very flavorful; a perfect companion with fresh green beans.
Pick up a baguette from The Salida Bread Company, Mountain Oven, or Styria Bakery to make this delicious recipe with your Weathervane zucchini.
Grilled Pears with Honey
Visit Sweet Pea Farm at the markets for a great selection of honey for this recipe.
Apple and Blue Cheese Salad with Spinach and Arugula
Make the base of this salad with your mixed greens in share this week. In lieu of blue cheese, track down Jumpin’ Good Goat Dairy’s delicious First Snow.
