The CCFA has a new website and a new blog just in time for a new market season. The above picture was taken on April 12, 2009 at CCFA member, Erin Oliver’s greenhouse in Nathrop, CO. This week she is beginning to pick vine ripened red tomatoes. This is just one of the wonderful local products you can expect at this years Salida Farmers Market.
The Salida Farmers Market will be in Alpine park again this year.
The application to the city is on the upcoming City Council Agenda for
Tuesday, May 19. The organizing is getting easier and easier each
year. But still, we have been working hard for a few months now
getting everything in line. We have big plans this year to add some
excitement and community connection to the market. A new prepared food
vendor court alongside the new music tent, monthly events like the
Salida Circus and Rivertribe performances and a grand kick-off on
FIBArk weekend are the highlights.
Many of the vendors from last year are already signed up with some
new ones, too. There is still room for just about all types of
products, so if you are interested in being a vendor please contact
Seth Roberts at market at ccfa dot coop.
