All good things must come to an end. But not all of them pick up again with the spring.
With the close of the growing season along the Front Range and Southern Colorado, today we bid a fond farewell to the Colorado Farm and Art Market. The market brought locally grown produce and hand-crafted goodies to our Sculpture Garden every Wednesday afternoon this summer 3-6:30 p.m. If you haven't yet had a chance to stop by and experience this downtown foodie delight, you have one final chance to "Get fresh with a Colorado Farmer." Don't mess it up.
And while you're there, it's a perfect opportunity to pick up tickets to ASSASSINS, which is earning rave reviews like this:
"A+ ... This outstanding cast and director Scott RC Levy, who is also the new director of performing arts at the center, have set a new bar for theater in this town."Want to get in some autumnal market shopping? We'll see you here at the FAC on the corner of Cascade and Dale.
"What a ride. Be sure to see it."
There will be great deals from Lotion Bar Cafe and other producers. (For more, follow @COFarmArtMarket on twitter.)
But if you do run into trouble joining us at the FAC, there's still the final Saturday market happening at the Margarita at Pine Creek 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Our heartfelt thanks to all the growers and vendors who made our Wednesdays delicious, nutritious, and downright fun. Hope to see everybody next year!
P.S. If you're as sad as we are about the end of the growing season, you can always make plans to join Colorado Farm &Art Market on Dec. 10 for a holiday festival featuring live music, handmade arts and crafts from local artisans, gourmet foods, and tasty prepared food and warm drinks prepared by Chef Eric and staff of the Margarita at Pine Creek. This will be an outdoor food and art festival, so be sure to dress for the weather.
