Downtown Farmer’s Market On Main Information
There’s a lot more than just fruits and veggies to discover at the Farmers’ Market in Downtown Grand Junction.
To market, to market! Perhaps not to buy a fat pig, but on a warm summer Thursday evening in Grand Junction, Colorado, there is no better place to be than the downtown Farmers’ Market Festival. Along four blocks of serpentine Main Street, traffic switches from motorized to pedestrian and vendors and shoppers perfectly reflect the heart and soul of Grand Junction — and a true taste of Colorado.
While “local” produce at farmers’ markets in big cities may come from hundreds of miles away, fresh in Grand Junction means just that: picked only a few hours ago, only a few miles away. Acres of vegetables, orchards and flower farms provide a bountiful harvest, creating a direct route of goods from grower to consumer.
From mid-June into September, tree-ripened, rosy-cheeked Colorado peaches hold star-of-the-show status — fruit so lush and sweet it’s been shipped to London, England, for sale at Harrods department store. More than a dozen varieties thrive in orchards stretching through the Grand Valley, from Palisade to Fruita. Peach aficionados know their favorites — Red Haven, Elberta, Sullivan, Suncrest, Hale — but friendly growers help those of us still learning peach nuances to make the proper selection for eating fresh, baking, freezing or canning.
Alida’s Fruits & Palisade Peaches
Perfectly situated in the heart of western Colorado’s fruit country, Alida’s Fruits offers a delightful combination of good old fashioned agriculture and modern entrepreneurship. “Farmer Bob” and Alida Helmer have spent years working the land, tending their orchards, and concocting a delicious variety of canned and dried products from the fruits of their labor.
Whether you’re looking for a tasteful Colorado gift idea, Palisade peaches, or just want to indulge yourself, Alida’s Fruits offers fresh fruits in season and home-canned fruits, jams, jellies, syrups and more in beautiful gift boxes year-round, and Palisade Pride offers a delightful variety of chocolate-dipped dried fruits. Please enjoy. Thanks for shopping with us!
