From peaches to beets to broccoli, and cabbage to kale, they have maintained a commitment to conscientiously tasing healthy, hand-grown varieties bringing joy and vitality to your table.

Now, Skip’s Farm to Market is committed to sharing this bounty year round and featuring area farmers and producers from Garfield and Mesa Counties, the Western Slope, and throughout Colorado. With our sustainable farming capabilities, we look forward to providing you with fresh, healthy produce every season of the year. Thank you for supporting Skip’s and allowing us to serve you. When we feed your soul, it feeds ours.

The mission at Roan Creek Ranch Grocery has always been to provide locally produced “clean” food to our community.  Roan Creek Ranch started raising and growing food for our family when I realized our food system had become a chemical system as I attempted to raise healthy children.

Roan Creek Ranch is committed to production methods that maximize animal welfare and health and produce a healthier product for our community. They take the same care in selecting all the products for our store

In 2019, the owner of Roan Creek Ranch Grocery decided that she wanted to pursue other opportunities. At the same time, Skip Doty was looking for a location in downtown Fruita. The two knew each other from their participation in area Farmer’s Markets.  The match was perfect.  Skip acquired the location, and will continue to offer the same local fare while preserving the tradition of offering locally grown and produced products meeting high-quality standards based on sustainable farming methods.
