Celebrate Bountiful Produce During Colorado Proud Month

 Nancy with Lettuce Heads








August is “Colorado Proud Month” and the perfect time to look for the Colorado Proud label and buy local. Celebrate this special time of year by joining in the fun of the “Choose Colorado Produce Challenge.” This online photo contest complete with local challenges and produce trivia encourages Coloradans to get reacquainted with the state’s bountiful produce. Look for Colorado products at your local grocery store, farmers’ market or at restaurants across the state.With summer at its peak and the grilling season in full swing it’s time to unleash the power of the “Wedge.” This salad is 100% Colorado and the perfect accent to grilled steak, chicken, pork or lamb chops, or enjoyed simply on its own.
