Fresh Apricots Coming Friday to Downtown Saguache
It’s Summertime in Saguache Today! And that means the season has arrived for fresh Western Slope fruits and vegetables!
The 4th Street Food Store is pleased to announce that weekly deliveries will begin this Friday, July 8 from locals Suzanne and Kent Talinde, whom many of you may remember from their many years at Farmers’ Markets. This week they will be bringing cases of Western Slope apricots and cherries; much more will be coming soon.
Fruits and vegetables are available in the store, by the pound or piece, and we also will be taking orders for cases or partial cases of individual items at bargain prices. Check with the 4th Street Food Store on Mondays or Tuesdays for availability and prices through the season.
The Food Store also receives fresh local produce every Friday from our partners with the Valley Roots Food Hub based in Mosca. Local potatoes, tomatoes, salad greens, spinach and mushrooms are among the items currently available, in addition, of course, to meats, poultry, dairy and eggs.
A nonprofit project of Saguache Works, the 4th Street Food Store is committed to making fresh, healthy foods available and affordable to area residents.
In partnership with LiveWell Colorado and the Double Up Colorado program, those eligible for SNAP benefits also will receive up to $20 worth of free Colorado produce for every $20 they spend at the 4th Street Food Store.
Please call 719-655-0216 for more information, or to place an order, or just come visit us at 404 4th St. in downtown Saguache.
