Peach of a winter farmers' market set for Saturday

I know -- it's harder to get worked up about nondescript winter squash than it is fresh, juicy, fragrant peaches. But winter still offers us many opportunities to eat and shop locally.

I posted the following info a few weeks ago. I see that the Wyoming Business Council web site lists the hours as 8 a.m.-3 p.m. But the hours listed below show 10 a.m.-2 p.m. One thing is certain -- if you go to the Depot during lunch, the vendors will be there.

The Wyoming Business Council sponsors the Cheyenne Winter Farmers Market on six Saturdays throughout the winter. The market will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the Historic Train Depot in downtown Cheyenne. Dates are November 6 (missed this one), December 4, January 8, February 5, March 5, and April 2.

Some of the locally raised and produced products are all-natural eggs, meats from free-range animals (beef, lamb, bison, chicken and turkeys), winter vegetables, salsa, soup mixes, local jams and honey, gourmet pasta, mushrooms, natural hand-crafted body care products, and much more.
