A Cure for Those Wintertime Fresh Veggie Blues in Colorado Springs?

A warm day (almost 60) and plenty of sunshine gives the craving to get outside.  For many it may also be the desire to get in your garden or at least enjoy the veggies from your garden.

 

Colorado Springs is fortunate that we have a great answer for those wintertime fresh veggie blues.  It is called Hunt or Gather and is located in the remodeled, historic Ivywild School.  

The Pikes Peak Community Foundation describes Hunt or Gather as:  

 

                  "The Pikes Peak Community Foundation

                   is bringing a fresh idea to the community:

                  a local food store with an educational flare."

 

You can also follow Hunt or Gather on Twitter for quick updates and fun reading.  Stopping by hungry can be dangerous because they also carry local honey, cheeses,  seasonal meats, and jams.

 

Veggies are grown year-round and brought into the store from several front range locations.  Walking in you will be greeted by an assortment of options including vegetables grown organically, through aquaponics 

 

They also offers classes, have a food library and work in collaboration with community partners such as Pikes Peak Community Foundation, The Meat Locker, Venetucci Farms, Pikes Peak Urban Gardens and Pinello Ranch just to name a few.

 

Located at 1604 Cascade Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO.  Winter hours are Friday - Sunday 12 pm - 6 pm.
