Kathy suggests grated turmeric and sage baked with spaghetti squash. Dandelion greens can be simply sautéed in butter or oil with garlic and/or turmeric.
Spring is happening in the traditional Colorado way — unpredictable, variable weather. One thing you can count on is that Karen “Plant Lady” Anderson sells high quality plants. She is bringing a collection of veggies & herbs to Mountain Naturals 10am-4pm May 2 to sell at her usual reasonable prices.
Recognizing the link between nutrition and health, our customers seek organically grown fruits and vegetables. When you enter our produce area, rest assured that nothing present was grown conventionally nor are there GMO crops in the store. Your continued support has enabled us to extend the varieties offered and encouraged local growers to market produce through Mountain Naturals Community Market. We expect 2015 to be an exciting year!
We are now offering a special version of the very popular fresh salsas by Woodland Park resident Mike Waller. Recognizing consumer preference trends, Mike is transitioning some of his products to non-GMO and naturally grown while supporting the local food economy by sourcing ingredients through Mountain Naturals. You will find his Pico de Gallo and Some Like It Hot salsa in the first cooler to the right as you enter the store.
Please leave feedback if you would like him to transition his veggie tamales to non-GMO/naturally grown ingredients.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit multi-stakeholder collaboration committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices.
Our shared belief is that everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified organisms. We offer North America’s only third party verification and labeling for non-GMO food and products.
As the only 501(c)(3) dedicated solely to the non-GMO mission, the Project plays an important role in coordinating the movement. Non-GMO Month, and this website, were created by the Project as tools to support that effort.

Mountain Naturals Community Market is pleased to announce the 2014 shift toward fruits and vegetables grown in Colorado. Pictured above are zucchini from Austin Family Farm, green kale from Full Circle Farms, peaches from Austin’s, and mixed salad greens from Better Health Farm in Florissant. We are happy to report that three market gardeners based in Woodland Park, Florissant, and Lake George are bringing produce to the store weekly.
Shortly after our opening time of 9am, a young man in bicycle gear walked into the store and soon began saying, “wow, this is an awesome store!” Laura and I appreciated his compliments and slowly joined into a conversation. He had driven from Oklahoma with camping gear and his road bike for a 14 day stay at Painted Rocks Campground about 7 miles north of the store. Beyond his amazement of the natural beauty of the area was his appreciation of a natural food store just 7 miles from his campsite. Wasn’t it Will Rogers who said “a stranger is just a friend I’ve not met.” I suspect we will become friends after a couple more visits to Mountain Naturals.
