The 4th Street Food Store is pleased to announce that weekly deliveries will continue tomorrow Friday, July 22 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, cherries and everyone’s favorite, peaches! 

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.
