Oct. 30: Farmers’ Market’s last day of 2010

       The last day of the season for the Old Colorado City Farmer's Market will be Saturday, Oct. 30.

This wrought-iron fence recently replaced an aging, recently broken segment of split-rail fence at the southeast corner of Bancroft Park. A fence like it is at the southwest corner. The cost was shared by City Parks and the Old Colorado City Security & Maintenance District. In the background is the Farmers' Market on 24th Street, next to the park. The market's last day of the year will be Oct. 30.

       With generally kind weather and no freeze until last week, “it was a good year, it really was,” said Frank Schmidt, a honey producer and president of the non-profit organization that sponsors the Saturday morning/early afternoon outdoor market.
       As they have on Saturdays since early June, Schmidt and about 25 other growers and/or merchants will set up for shop at about 7 a.m., closing off 24th Street next to Bancroft Park between Colorado and Pikes Peak avenues. Shutdown will occur around 1 to 2 p.m.
       Schmidt said the market will be back in early June of 2011 for its 24th year.
