Produce picked fresh for Falcon

Smith’s Farm Market, at Highway 24 and Meridian Road, has rolled into town with farm fresh produce. Since opening July 11, the market has offered a variety of produce, including dove melon, watermelon, peaches and cream sweet corn, a variety of tomatoes, onions, peppers, eggplant, green beans, cucumbers, black-eyed peas, basil and honey direct from the Rocky Ford farm. It also sells potatoes from the San Luis Valley and Palisade peaches.”We’ve been looking at Falcon for the last three years,” said farmer Adam Smith. The demand for produce is one reason he decided to open the market. The other was convenience for customers. “Some loyal customers drive to Rocky Ford to get loaded up on produce,” he said. Smith said business in Falcon has been positive. “For the most part, we continue to get new customers everyday. And we get a lot of repeat customers.”To ensure the produce is fresh, it is delivered to Falcon every day from Rocky Ford.Smith said he also has locations in Denver, Colorado Springs and Black Forest. He plans to keep the market open until mid-October or until the first freeze. “Our business depends on the weather,” Smith said.Smith’s Farm Market is open everyday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
