Fresh Picks is our farmers’ market summer recipe series dedicated to eating, shopping, and cooking Colorado. Every Friday through September 6 we will focus on one locally grown ingredient—where it’s grown and where to buy it—paired with a Denver chef’s must-make-it-now recipe. But we won’t stop there. We want you to prepare the dish and post a picture of it on Pinterest, Instagram, or Twitter (make sure to tag it with a #5280eats hash tag). Each week, we’ll post the best photo on along with other recipes spotlighting the season’s freshest produce at We challenge you to join us in eating Colorado fresh.
