This or That
choosing fresh produce vs supermarket produce during harvest time


Harvest time is upon us! So its a great time to make the choice to choose fresh produce while its so plentiful!

This or That Fresh Produce: Make the choice to purchase one Colorado made item each week.

With farmers markets, fruit and veggie stands, and CSA’s a plenty, there are lots of ways to get in on the harvest.  And this time of the year is the best time of the year to purchase fresh produce, not only because of the variety and quality available, but also sheer quantity cause reasonable prices to drop even further, ensuring you the best price available on a lot of different varieties of veggies, fruits and herbs.

Have You Joined the Vegetable Revolution Yet?

Beets, onions, carrots and potatoes are being ripped up by their roots.  Tomatoes pulled from their vines.  Kale and chard are hacked down.  Heads roll as acorn squashes and pumpkins are decapitated from their vines. The last one standing is the Dill and he soon falls and is hung by his ankles to dry. 


Why This or That?

Would you choose this or that? That is the question.  We are setting out on a learning journey to find comparative everyday household products, foods and gifts that can be purchased from with in Colorado.  We are asking you to tune in each week to find out what THIS or THAT item will be highlighted. 

Created In Colorado would like to propose a challenge: Try to replace one household item with one that’s made in Colorado each week, or even once per month.  At first you might believe this might be challenging, but I will be providing you with some excellent comparable choices for you to choose from, so watch out, and tune in!

By the way, anything that is in ever in the THAT column is not under fire,  or disliked.  Its just not a favorite when compared to the much better THIS column.  So if you see me at the supermarket with a that in my basket, I am not a hypocrite! And I don't consider you one either. 

Just one item per week or even per month could make a difference in your local economy.  Especially if everyone participated.  So...share this, talk about it, what ever it takes, lets make a difference together. Look in our directories for other awesome local choices!!
