On April 11, the City of Greeley took a group of residents on a tour featuring local foods and products. For those who don’t know, a G. Town Tour is a free and fun event to acquaint residents and visitors with interesting aspects of the city that they might not otherwise know much about. Here are some of the stops we made on the tour.

Pope Farms Produce and Garden Center is a one-stop mom and pop shop for home grown produce and plants. They offer fresh local produce, locally produced products, fresh pies and more. In addition, you can purchase plants to start your own veggie garden at home. It’s a place you can pick up some trendy garden décor or flowers that brighten up any yard.

Designing custom dessert creations for weddings, birthdays and other occasions is Batter Up’s specialty. And it’s always a great stop for a treat, with a good selection of pastries, cupcakes, cheesecake, cannoli, scones, eclairs and other specialty desserts.
