Expect to find a diverse mix of fresh produce items at today’s farm stand.

Many of your favorite vendors will be back, including Lorena, owner of Azteca Gourmet, who returns from a two-week trip to Oaxaca and will have freshly made Oaxacan-style mole tamales and sauces! Be sure to inquire about her unique dessert tamales too! (How does blueberry-basil sound?)

Also, Lindsey Aparicio – better known as the Goat Cheese Lady – is selling $100 mix-and-match boxes of her handmade soaps and lotions to help fund a new creamery at their farm near Penrose. (She’s also getting ready to host their next farm-to-table dinner on August 20, featuring Chef David Cook. Tour her farm, meet the goats, and then dine in a grassy meadow at dusk as the mountains turn dark blue all around you! Makes for a truly memorable experience. CLICK HERE for more details.)

Also, the Galileo School Garden returns with tomatoes (including cherry tomatoes) cucumbers, squash, zucchini and beans.

Judy Purcell, author of Savoring Today (a wonderful food blog) will be grilling and sampling her handmade meat rubs. Her last grilling class of the season is Saturday (August 13) at 11 a.m. and will teach you everything you need to know about grilling fish and seafood. Yum! Space is running out.
