Best Grassroots Groceries - 2005
Tres Rios Agricultural Cooperative
A cooperative of thirteen farms in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, Tres Rios distributes wholesale produce, grains, honey and meats to stores and restaurants out of its Denargo Market warehouse in Denver year-round. But the grassroots organization is also happy to cater to home chefs. Each week it offers boxes of fresh, organic produce and meat to individual consumers, basing the delivered fare on what's in season. Each box runs $25, and Tres Rios certainly doesn't skimp. Foodies, unite.
