The first Old South Pearl Street Farmer’s Market was on Sunday, June 5th and it was a great success! Denver Urban Truck Farm got a sweet spot on the corner of South Pearl and Florida under a great big Elm tree. We appreciate the shade since the Denver heat is upon us already! The market has expanded this year, with even more great local vendors. I even heard a rumor that our favorite food truck Pinche Tacos will be making appearances this year…
We had quite a few repeat visitors who knew us from last year, and plenty of first-timers as well. Everyone seemed enthusiastic about the project, and we made some great new contacts with local renewable energy groups and some South Pearl Street restaurants. The truck looks fantastic and is much more full than last year. We had a few casualties since planting, but we will soon need to thin out some of the larger plants as they grow, so now we will have some flexible space. Cool season crops are looking great and we will already be harvesting some arugula and herbs this week!
See you all next week – and very soon at Civic Center Eats as well!
