  • Farm-fresh eggs, goat and sheep cheese
  • Locally roasted fair-trade coffee and herbal teas
  • Fresh breads and home-baked treats
  • Fresh, local salsa
  • Locally made chocolates and candies
  • Grass-fed beef, lamb, and bison, free-range chickens, pork, goat's meat
  • Locally produced jams, honey, and Amish-style peanut butter

  • Soup mixes, rubs, and dip mixes
  • Natural, locally-produced body care products
  • Hand-crafted jewelry, cutting boards, cards, and other hand-made crafts
I've bought a little bit of everything at the market. Last time I went heavy on the pasta from Fort Collins. This time, it's hard to say. I'm so ready for fresh fruits and veggies, but we're still a few months away from that. I grow some of my own but not nearly enough.
