Summer in Beaver Creek

When visiting Beaver Creek this summer keep in mind the Edwards Farmers’ Market. The market focuses on high quality farm and gourmet food products and it attracts some of the finest farmers and food vendors in Colorado. Farmers arrive early on Saturday mornings with refrigerated trucks loaded with freshly-picked conventional and organic fruit & vegetables. Gourmet food vendors come from all over Colorado with their freshly-made specialties.

Fruit and vegetables at the Edwards Farmers’ Market are picked just hours before you buy them. Fruit and vegetables at supermarkets are picked days and sometimes weeks before you buy them. You can really taste the difference between vine and tree ripened Colorado fruit/vegetables and generic supermarket fare that is often picked green and shipped from hundreds or even thousands of miles away.

Specialty food vendors work from colorful tents selling freshly-made breads, pastries and quiche. Others offer delightful selections of Colorado meats and wild Alaskan seafood; pastas & sauces; honey; jams & chutneys; olive oils & balsamic vinegars; fruit pies; tamales; organic spices; coffee beans; french table linens and more. You can do much of your entire week’s food shopping at the Edwards Farmers’ Market. Selections vary weekly so arrive early for best selection.

Stop by and enjoy the market’s ambiance. Meet friends and neighbors and relax in the shade. Popular food vendors provide gyros, crepes and tamales that will delight your palate.

Market dates for summer 2010 are every Saturday, from mid-June to mid-September, Hours are 9:30 a.m. til 1:30 p.m. Pets are welcome! Free, convenient, on-site parking.
