Just added: Romano’s Macaroni Grill. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Colorado is, by nature, an agricultural state. Though it may be a month or more before our farmer’s markets open (they are considered essential businesses), in the meantime there are other options instead of the supermarket for locally-grown fruit, vegetables, meat and more. Some are wholesalers who are opening their doors to retail customers because of so many restaurant closures. Others are restaurants, butcher shops, farmers or specialty retailers. We plan to update this list, so bookmark it and keep checking back.
Check each company for details for pick-up and delivery options. Also, be sure to scan each company’s offerings — some sell only in bulk or prepackaged boxes, others let you pick and choose specific items. If you know of other local markets or vendors selling to the general public, please send an email to Laura@milehighonthecheap.com and I’ll try and add it to the list.
