COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado Proud presents “Follow your Fruits and Veggies Journey” this Wednesday, August 24, at the Colorado Farm and Art Market.

The idea behind the event is to help bridge the gap between consumers and farmers when it comes to local agriculture. The Colorado Proud booth will feature costumed “fruits and veggies,” educational information, recipe cards featuring locally-grown ingredients, representatives of Colorado Proud, Colorado seed packets, and other agri-fun experiences.

The Colorado Farm and Art market runs each Wednesday from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. in downtown Colorado Springs in front of the Pioneers Museum.
