Even paradise is only as good as the people you share it with.

New Oxford Dictionary's word of the year 2007
Locavore:  someone who eats food grown or produced locally or within a certain radius such as 100 or 200 miles.  The locavore movement encourages consumers to buy from farmers markets, CSAs or even to produce their own food, fresh, local products are more nutritious and taste better.  Locally grown food is also an environmentally friendly means of obtaining food, since supermarkets that import their food use more fossil fuels and non-renewable resources.  Did you know that if not local, the food on your plate has traveled an average of 1500 miles to get there?

It's that time of the year when it becomes easier  to buy locally. Fruits and veggies are popping up ready to be devoured.  Below is a guide to Denver's Farmers Markets, that we hope can help you plan your summer delights. If you're on the outskirts of Denver check the links below.

    Farmer’s markets are good right? but did you know the larger venues like Cherry Creek, etc get upwards of $200.00 per day from each vendor – the reason they’re so commercial now. So why not support a year-round much more economic market like Denver Urban Homesteading, http://www.denverurbanhomesteading.com. Granted its small but one can usually walk away the necessities. No crepes though! but then they’re not paleo anyways.

  4. Slaughter :

    Hey All, I’m looking for some help at the Southwest Regionals in less than two weeks! If you’re interesting in helping me I would absolutely LOVE the assistance. It will be in assisting the media team that is there in coverage of the event, but you don’t need any experience in this field. It will be supporting me and that team. Email me at chris@alphahelixmedia.com if you’re interested! Thanks!!!

  5. James (O.G.) :

    We should do more team WODs on days that are not Sunday. Thursdays can be fundays too, you know.

  6. Tobias :

    Cherie! Since last time I did overhead squats was with you, I though I’d let you know that I got a new PR. 170#! (15# improvement)
    Wahoo!
