Get there before it’s gone

Get there before it’s gone

The bittersweet truth about local produce is that just doesn’t last. One week it seems like fresh tomatoes are everywhere and just a few short weeks later, they’ve vanished, leaving us with nothing but their cardboard-tasting cousins to fill the void until next summer. This is all to say ... get it while it last. Local residents have two more Saturdays -- Oct. 19 and 26 -- to stock up at the Durango Farmers Market before it’s over. The market runs from 9 a.m. to noon at the First National Bank parking lot. If you miss out, at least there’s still the holiday markets to look forward to. Those take place 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Nov. 23 and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 14 at the La Plata County Fairgrounds. But don’t expect to find fresh tomatoes there because the reality is, you live in Southwest Colorado.
