— Rain may have dampened the Yampa Farmer’s Market in July, but organizers hope residents who are still craving fresh, locally grown produce will turn out Sept. 25 for the final market of the summer.

The market is slated for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Yampa’s River Park, and according to coordinator Michelle Mahosky, “there’s still plenty of produce available.”

Mahosky said this weekend’s market will feature an abundance of locally produced peaches, plus an assortment of produce from the Palisade area, including a variety of melons.

“This is actually prime time” for melons, Mahosky said.

The market will also feature local meats, dairy, honey, dried goods, cherries, tomatoes and assorted vegetables, as well as a number of handcrafted items created by area artisans.

Now wrapping up its second year, the Yampa Farmers Market has enjoyed steady growth this year, with vendors from Steamboat Springs and other nearby communities beginning to participate, Mahosky said.

She added the final market will be enlivened by music from the Steamboat Springs bluegrass group, Buffalo Commons, as well as performances from area musicians Wayne Wagner and Chris Pearson, who Mahosky said, perform European bistro-type music in several different languages.

And, as always, she said, the market will offer a number of activities for children, including face painting.
