Aspen Saturday Market, going - and growing - through October 15


It's a cornucopia of sights, a plethora of smells, a smorgasbord of tastes...that's what happens at the Aspen Saturday Market, words wax poetic from all the inspiration.

Fresh organic produce from Paonia, Hotchkiss and our surrounding local fields, wildflowers galore, goat cheese and samples (our favorite), music, home-made Kettle Corn, gourmet beef jerky; the list goes on, as do the booths of goodness around town.

This year's Aspen Saturday Market will continue through October 15. See you at the Market!
