Salida Farmers Market

A Central Colorado Foodshed Alliance hosts a farmers market in the Salida Alpine Park.

The market is open from late June to October on Saturdays from 8:30 to noon. Vendors are broad including local produce, lunch/snack foods, handmade goods, and various other services enjoyed by the modern mountain hippy. Entertainment can include banjo and other live music and occasionally wolves. Yay wolves.

Cherry and Peach ice cream

And...the exciting part is that they occasionally have cherry and peach ice creams for sale. These are, of course, made with Colorado local peaches and cherries which means they are more of a small-batch artisanal ice cream.
